CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Service-Learning in Occupational Therapy Education: Philosophy and Practice
explores the use of service-learning as a pedagogical tool for educators to
enhance occupational therapy students knowledge and skills in the areas of
critical thinking and problem solving, diversity, health promotion, community
issues, social justice and citizenship. These areas are representative of core
competencies needed by occupational therapy professionals for occupation-based
practice in the 21st century. This text describes philosophical and theoretical
principles of service-learning in relationship to occupational therapy
philosophical and pedagogical traditions. Effective service-learning
educational strategies and experiential applications of occupational therapy in
the community are highlighted through the presentation of case studies of
service- learning initiatives in occupational therapy programs across the
United States. Examples of how to design, implement and assess service-learning
projects and partnerships are provided along with insights and lessons learned
from faculty engaging in service-learning.
