OTA students in the OTH 1203 – Human Occupation and Development Across the Life Span participated in a hands-on, collaborative, application based activity. Students completed the activity as a group. They created silhouettes replicating of normal human development (from conception to death), characterizing life stages of physical/biological, cognitive, and social-emotional changes, theoretical interpretations, and risk for disease/disability at each stage of life. The students felt it was a lot of fun, very applicable and easier to retain the information when physically engaged.
Students from the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program hosted their semester – Cultural Fair as a part of their competency for OTH 1203 – Human Occupation and Development Across the Lifespan. The students engaged in an experiential/practical activity and presented information on varying cultures across the globe with an emphasis on therapeutic knowledge as it pertains to cultural issues related to Occupational Therapy – patient treatment. This exciting expose was presented to the campus via colorful and dynamic media including posters/information fact sheets, pictures/video’s, and artifacts including music, food, and games.
