Congratulations to Christine Berg, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, who was awarded an interdisciplinary team grant for Community-Based Teaching at Washington University in St. Louis. The Office of the Provost recently solicited proposals from faculty for “Bring Your Own Idea” gatherings to facilitate conversations among faculty across school and disciplinary lines.
Berg is on a three-member team with Amanda Moore McBride, PhD, School of Social Work and the Gephardt Institute, and Beth Martin, MS, PE, School of Law. Together, they will provide a venue for faculty across the university to discuss their approaches, needs, and strategies for effective and efficient use of community-based pedagogy, resulting in recommendations for advancing this pedagogy university-wide, including innovative interdisciplinary approaches.
Ranked as the Number One OT Program in the Nation
