How to apply an Occupation Paradigm in a Problem Based Learning Curriculum
2007 (English)Report (Other academic)
The increasing demands of professions like occupational therapy worldwide require good quality standards of the education. Traditional education has been based on the notion that teachers have knowledge and are responsible for passing on this knowledge to the students. However, in order to make educations attractive and effective new educational methods have developed. One such method is problem-based learning (PBL) which emphasizes that learning must be an active process involving knowledge as well as cognitive and practical skills and attitudes. This article describes PBL as it is applied with the concept of occupation as the core of an occupational therapy educational program. Occupation is a central concept in occupation therapy. Students need to develop a genuine knowledge and understanding of the occupational nature of humans, the meaning of the concept and environmental influences.
