Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.
While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

This unit introduces students to the concept of professional reasoning in occupational therapy. Students will learn about the types of professional reasoning and become aware of how they gather information and then use this information to make professional decisions. Through a problem based learning approach students will develop their professional reasoning skills to apply in the unit and in later practice education units.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Recognise the types of practice reasoning and how these can apply to occupational therapy;
2. Apply specific skills in assessment and intervention to improve the occupational performance of individuals with physical, cognitive and psychosocial impairment; and
3. Know how to apply practice reasoning in occupational therapy with individual with impairments and with communities.
