Use Across the Curriculum

Video clips can be viewed multiple times to illustrate different points, or additional clips of the same client can be utilized over time to meet different learning objectives.  Many curricula build upon foundational skills and expect more complex analytic, evaluative or creative skills demonstrated by the learner over time. 

Foundational Courses / Year One

This menu of possible learning objectives can be used to build foundational skills in the learner, often taught in the first several semesters of a program.

After viewing the video, the learner will be able to:

  1. Summarize specific therapeutic techniques demonstrated by the therapist

  2. Explain therapeutic use of self, demonstrated by the therapist

  3. Summarize client strengths and deficits

  4. Execute an activity analysis of the client activity

  5. Identify models of practice and/or frames of reference used by the therapist in the case

  6. Describe safety considerations for this client in the current setting

  7. Identify appropriate questions for the client and/or family to develop an occupational profile
