Provides students with the opportunity to undertake reflective practice and develop clinical reasoning skills in community based practice settings. Students develop professional behaviours and competencies, and integrate and apply theory and skills learned in foundational units under the supervision of an occupational therapy practitioner.
160 hours of professional experience learning to be undertaken in community engaged learning contexts.
This unit requires students to complete specific assessment tasks in order to pass the unit of study e.g. critical reflections. The students are assessed by the supervisor on fieldwork using the Fieldwork Performance Evaluation Sheet and they are specifically assessed on their professional behaviour and attitude, communication skills, documentation skills and basic clinical reasoning.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
