Occupational Therapy Fieldwork Education: Transitioning from Practitioner to Teacher

We have revamped our fieldwork education workshop into a digitized online curriculum with eight modules, which are designed to help you:

  • Plan, implement and enjoy a clinical experience for a student
  • Describe the UBC Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT) enter-to-practice curriculum
  • Differentiate between a number of learning and supervisory styles
  • Identify the role of objectives in planning a clinical learning experience
  • Select strategies which will contribute to effective student evaluation
  • Define the purpose and use of the Competency-Based Fieldwork Evaluation for Occupational Therapists (CBFE-OT) and its relationship to objectives
  • Identify feedback strategies and become comfortable with giving and receiving feedback

These modules align with the content in the Fieldwork Educators’ Manual. Explore the online modules alongside the manual.

To access each module, simply click on the icon below and ensure your speakers are on, as Donna Drynan, Professor & Associate Head, Educational Affairs, will be guiding you through the material in the manual.
