General Description of Student Activities
Students will use a variety of quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods and systematic or scoping review approaches to investigate topics related to student advising in higher education. Students participate in journal clubs, peer-to-peer learning, literature reviews, project development and data analysis. They will design a project related to innovations in occupational therapy education, implement the project and analyze the findings either individually or in small groups. Students may be guided in program development, implementation and evaluation of outcomes. Students are expected to produce a manuscript that can be published in peer-reviewed literature and will have the opportunity to present their work at local, state and national conferences.
