Health and Life Sciences Department of Sport and Health Sciences This distance learning course is designed for UK, EU and international occupational therapists. Occupational therapists need to respond to an ever-changing and challenging practice environment. Through this course, you will gain the skills and knowledge to help you transform your own practice and that of the teams within which you work, and increase the influence you have on your organisations. Oxford Brookes already has an excellent reputation and a long and prestigious history for pre-qualifying occupational therapy education. Dorset House, School of Occupational Therapy in Oxford was a pioneering institution in occupational therapy which dates back to the 1930s and became part of the School of Health and Social Care at Oxford Brookes in 1997. Occupational therapists are part of an international community, irrespective of location or culture. E-learning offers accessible, flexible and modern learning methods to meet the expectations of professionals in the 21st century. All students on the course will have different levels of professional knowledge, clinical experience and technical and life skills. We value these differences and believe that students learn best by sharing their experiences and by working collaboratively. The course therefore offers plenty of opportunities for discussion, reflection and joint working, as well as a communal online area for you to contribute to the development of the discipline. Key features of this course include: ? distance learning, with an emphasis on working together in an online community ? the opportunity to explore a specialist area of practice and to apply it through a work-based learning module ? the chance to study with students from different professions ? the development of research skills and the opportunity to undertake primary research. The course normally starts in September (Semester 1). In exceptional circumstances, you may be able to start in January (Semester 2). Please contact the Programme Leader for further information.
