Module description

About this module

You will be encouraged to think widely in the selection of their topic area relevant to your occupational therapy practice.

Through analysis and evaluation, the investigation will promote within you an independence of outlook, reliance on your own learning and presentation techniques, and will result in a positive contribution to the workplace.

Through negotiation with a dedicated module tutor, you will be guided to identify your own learning needs and areas of development relating to your practice to produce a learning contract identifying how learning will be achieved.

This module is distance learning, delivered online and equates to 400 hours of study. Students will be supported by a module tutor via phone, skype and/or email.
