Interested in becoming a Fieldwork Educator? This section of the website will provide you with helpful information on how to take on a student, the benefits of becoming a Fieldwork Educator, and making your student’s experience a positive one.
As Fieldwork educators, you facilitate the learning of students by creating a climate to promote the development of knowledge, skills, behaviours, and attitudes relevant to occupational therapy. As a fieldwork educator, your role will involve:
- Integrating a student program into the fieldwork setting,
- Modelling professional practice behaviours,
- Guiding student practice within the setting, and
- Providing formal and informal feedback and evaluation on performance to the student and appropriate university personnel.
