A MODEL OF PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING IN A TUTORIAL DESIGNED FOR DEVELOPING THE OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS’ COMPETENCES

Journal Title: Current Trends in Natural Sciences - Year 2012, Vol 1, Issue 2

Abstract

The aim of this research is to present a model of problem-based learning (PBL), as a case-based learning, in a tutorial addressed to first year Occupational Therapy (OT) students, level 5 (Bachelor degree). We choose two competences that can be developed by the proposed tutorial, extracted from the TUNING document: a generic competence (Ability to work in an interdisciplinary team) and a specific one (Professional reasoning) and we described the learning outcomes that come from these competences, as knowledge, skills and attitudes. In order to achieve the mentioned competences, we outline some integrated subjects (topics) that need to be learned by the students and we designed the lessons framework. At the end of the tutorial we hope that our students in occupational therapy will be able to understand and to apply an instrument of evaluation of the quality of life (WHOQOL-26), inside a multidisciplinary team-work, remaining with the basic concepts of clinical reasoning in a complex clinical case of an old man with important neuro-vascular comorbidity. This model of PBL in a tutorial designed for developing the occupational therapists’ competences represents an example of good practice in higher education, with large applicability in health sciences.
