This is the second subject in a two part Honours Project subject chain. Within this subject, students will work in small, self-directed groups towards completion of a project relevant to a contemporary occupational therapy practice issue. Students will be required to demonstrate skills in leadership, planning and team-working in order to effectively plan and undertake various project activities. Students will analyse and summarise their project findings in order to extract conceptually robust conclusions and derive meaningful and practically relevant recommendations, including strategies for implementation. Students will present their project findings in both written and oral formats and be required to respond to examiner and audience questions regarding project design, conclusions and recommendations. Students will also be required to critically reflect on their performance (as individuals and a team) in undertaking the project and discuss their learning from engagement in the project as a whole.
|Prerequisites:||OT3010 AND OT3011 AND OT3012 AND OT3004 AND OT3005 AND OT4008|
As this subject is part of a subject chain, a final standard grade (e.g. P, C) will only be recorded for each subject after successful completion of all parts of the subject chain.
