MSc Advanced Occupational Therapy -online

Just a reminder that the admission cycle for the MSc Advanced Occupational Therapy -online has opened for intake September 09.

Study in the comfort of your own home, share, compare and contrast your experiences with a virtual community of like-minded occupational therapists potentially from all over the world. Deepen your knowledge base, develop your thinking and become a leader within your profession. Not only will you gain academic award, but through negotiating your assessments you will also have the option of using your learning to enhance and develop your current and future work roles. Don't just take our word for it - here's some things that our students have to say about the course so far:

"I've really enjoyed being in contact with other students, in particular the student I worked with on the Model's formative assessment. It was great to talk and share experiences re: learning and the course. I've occasionally ventured into the social aspects of the course, and found it useful to be in contact with people in this way."

"It has facilitated my confidence in trying out new approaches with clients and has made me re-focus my understanding of what it is to be an Occupational Therapist. Fellow colleagues have also commented on the new terminology i now use in both my verbal and written communication....Thank you."

"Having just completed the PatBot module i have started questioning the way we do things here at work, which I suppose is only a good thing! I found the module really interesting and it has been a good introduction to the masters. At times the technology is frustrating but my skills have improved and I am now getting used to computer technology which has even made me learn how to put songs on a i-pod! Forward thinking hey!!!"

and finally - a student sharing their thoughts on one of the social wiki spaces for the cohort - talking to fellow students:

"Every now and again I start wondering why I ever started this journey, especially at the moment with work commitments, xmas, students and assessment deadlines looming. I have also commented recently, that sometimes I feel I am doing this on my own. However, after having 'one of those moments' recently, I have just trawled through blackboard and read some of the posts on the various wikis etc which you have all contributed to and they have left me feeling really inspired and excited and priviledged to be doing this and has made me realise that actually I am not doing it on my own and there is support out there in cyber space! So, if anyone else has 'a moment' of doubt ....try reading through some of our comments!

So, if you want to know anything further about the programme, or would like to send in your application for our next intake please follow the link to our website that should give you all the information you need. Please contact us of you have any queries.

Wow this sounds absolutely fantastic! Have you thought about presenting this teaching approach at WFOT? Cheers, Anita.

@Anita, thanks for your comment. I notice that the call for papers for the 2010 WFOT congress is now open so maybe we'll get chance to present something there?
Of course we would be happy to share our experiences with WFOT in any other way too - any suggestions?
