While many universities have shifted towards an adult learning approach to accommodate the needs of younger generations, fieldwork educators may still be implementing teaching and learning strategies that have been successful in the past with previous generations.  As the learning styles of students continue to evolve, it is important that the teaching styles used in fieldwork education evolve with them.  As occupational therapy practitioners, we value our ability to adjust our therapeutic use of self and therapeutic strategies to meet the needs of each person individually.  Similarly, as fieldwork educators, we can strive to learn more about the new generation of students to enrich our teaching methods as a way to foster meaningful interactions and learning experiences of our fieldwork students. This seminar aims to equip fieldwork educators as they mentor the current generation of occupational therapy students.

This free event is open to all current fieldwork educators as well as those who are interested in supervising and mentoring students in the future. Lunch will be provided for event participants.

Nominees for the annual Cynthia B. Cole Outstanding Fieldwork Educator Award will be recognized along with the announcement of the winner of the distinguished award.

Registration for this event is now closed.
