A Follow-up of an Occupational Therapy Programme based on Problem-Based Learning (PBL)
2009 (English)Report (Other academic)
A follow-up study explored how graduate occupational therapists valued quality aspects of their undergraduate education on a Problem-Based Learning (PBL) occupational therapy programme. One hundred and fifty of 195 graduates completed a questionnaire. The survey focused on factors such as: specific occupational therapy content combined with practical skills and preparation for future work; problem-solving and critical thinking; ability to communicate and collaborate; personal and professional development; and life-long learning. The respondents rated items after considering them from two aspects: acquired skills and objective importance. The main results show that the respondents rated their skills as above average in the quality aspects of the programme. A discrepancy was evident between the rated acquired skills and the rated importance of key qualities of the curriculum.
Student –centred learning with PBL is evaluated as having value but is rejected.
