Online Course Design Showcase Series: You Can’t Do it All, But You Can Do Quite a Bit: Transforming Team-based Learning OSOT 553 Online

Event Date & Time

  • June 22, 2021
    12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Event Description

OSOT 553 Innovations in occupation: Developing and evaluating occupational therapy programs is a course that spans across two terms and is delivered in the second year of the two year Master of Occupational Therapy program. OSOT 553 uses a team-based learning approach to course design and delivery and also works with community partners for 50% of student projects. Typically, OSOT 553 is delivered in person. However, in 2020 the second half of the course had to move fully online.

A 20-minute presentation will take participants through:

  • what guided decision making for transforming the course,
  • how this team-based learning course was delivered online in 2020,
  • how it is being delivered now in 2021, and
  • considerations with resumption of in-person learning for its delivery in 2022.

It will be followed by a 40-minute discussion where participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and share ideas. Participants will be encouraged to apply key learnings to their own teaching.


  • Katie Lee Bunting, MScOT, Reg. OT (BC), Occupational Therapist, Assistant Professor of Teaching & MOT Curriculum Chair, Department of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy
