The School of Human and Health Sciences believes that learning should be innovative, flexible and fun. Exciting mobile technologies offer lively additions to the more traditional approaches to study and have the potential to revolutionise learning and teaching. New students on our September 2011 Occupational Therapy BSc(Hons) course will have the opportunity to contribute to, and evaluate these opportunities by taking part in our dynamic mobile learning project using the Apple iPad. Each participant will be provided with an iPad which will be used by students and lecturers to enhance learning and teaching opportunities and experiences.

Janice Jones, Senior Lecturer and Course Leader of Occupational Therapy BSc(Hons), said “we are excited to be involved in this opportunity to enhance the teaching and learning of Occupational Therapy students. The iPad will give them flexibility to access a wealth of information, enhance their practical skills through the use of different media and extend their learning opportunities beyond university”.

The occupational therapy degree enables learners to study occupational therapy theory and practice and integrate knowledge from the biological, behavioural and social sciences. The course has excellent on campus practical facilities which enhance this integration and the iPad presents exciting opportunities to build on this and introduce additional and innovative learning experiences.
