PARTICIPATION IN DIVERSE COMMUNITIES THROUGH SERVICE LEARNING

OCT3PDC

2015

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will develop an understanding of pre-professional constructs integral to occupational therapy including humans as occupational beings, enablement, empowerment, occupational participation and the impact of the environment. Through participation in a service learning experience in a community agency, students will deepen their understanding of community diversity and social justice. Students will reflect on their service learning experience through focused reflections and group tasks, allowing integration of theoretical material with learning in the field, and the application of new learning in real-life situations. The subject will provide opportunity to consolidate skills in communication, team work and professional behaviour.
