Hi all! I am Pauline Martinez, a faculty member of the Department of Occupational Therapy in the University of the Philippines Manila. Right now, I am the course coordinator of OT 122: Occupational Therapy Theory.
For our class learning activity, we are planning to launch an online forum using OTION (otion.wfot.org) for our students to gain different perspectives from other local and international OT students about their experiences/views on their OT Student role. We would like to open a facilitated sharing of stories and experiences so we can help the students understand and value the importance of occupations and the interplay of the PEO factors.
However, one anticipated problem with this activity will be the few number of responses from students. It will be good if one or more schools can collaborate with us and encourage (or require) their students to join. This can be a big help to further enrich the exchange of ideas.
For further details, you are more than welcome to email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
For your educators: Hope we can collaborate and help our students appreciate a global context of the OT student role! 🙂
For students: We can connect through your OT Student societies/assembly/groups! Hope I can hear some of you reply on this thread and express their interest in participating!
