OT4008 - Occupational Therapy Honours Project Part 1 of 2
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Healthcare Sciences
This is the first 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.
- apply in-depth knowledge of a contemporary practice issue in order to design a conceptually
and practically robust project plan;
- apply knowledge and skills in project management, leadership and team-working as required
to deliver effectively on a project plan;
- create a professionally appropriate summary of an independent project, including a
critical examination of the project findings and outcomes from which robust conclusions
have been extracted and future recommendations provided;
- construct an appropriate implementation plan to support realisation of project findings
and implications for practice;
- critically evaluate and reflect on performance of team and on self as part of team
in relation to project planning, completion and reporting.
