Academic and Clinical Education
The purpose of this course is to provide strategies and ideas for learning activities which educators can employ in their physical therapy curriculum. A brief review of the literature related to current instructional design and examples of pediatric physical therapy course integration will set the stage for feasible changes that can be made this term or in the future. Demonstrations and active learning approaches will be used throughout the course to model refreshing techniques. The session will include low and high-tech ideas to cater to a variety of objectives, curriculums and programs. Our goal is to inspire instructors to invigorate their courses in hopes of expanding student engagement to ultimately improve student learning.
