Abstract: To meet the needs of all learners in a diverse group, with diverse learning styles, and from different cultural backgrounds is a challenge but increasingly important for occupational therapy programs. The OT-EuroMaster approach requires a continuous willingness of students and teachers alike to learn from and with each other. There is limited knowledge available on how to enhance knowledge about cultural diversity in an international classroom. Learning objectives: The aim of this workshop is to spark dialogue about educational methods currently used in occupational therapy across the world to meet the values, needs and expectations of increasingly cultural diverse groups of students. Learning methods: The authors will briefly introduce the topic of cultural diversity. The relevance of the topic for occupational therapy education will be illustrated with examples based on experiences of students and teachers of the OT-EuroMaster Program. Central topics and challenges such as communication and participation styles and related educational approaches will be addressed. In drawing upon learning methods used in the OT-EuroMaster, discussion regarding experiences and challenges faced by workshop participants in embracing cultural diversity in Occupational Therapy education will be facilitated in small intercultural groups. The maximum number of participants is 25. Contribution to the practice/evidence base of occupational therapy: The increasing diversity of today’s students forces occupational therapy programs to recognize that no two students learn alike. To ensure that the highest quality education is available to all students, educational programs must vary their instructional methods. Consequently, this workshop aims to share ideas and experiences of a variety of educational approaches to embrace cultural diversity in an increasing international classroom.
Further description : Workshop-Moderation / workshop presentation *** nach Rückfrage bei Autorin Galli auf die Feststellung hin, dass im Abstract (https://www.jaot.net/proceeding/2014/pdf/endai200587.pdf) ihr und Herr Kottorps Name fehlen: "Vielen Dank für die Rückfrage: ja genau, das war ein Referat an einem Kongress in Japan; Anders Kottorp und ich waren vor Ort und haben mit-moderiert; eingereicht wurde das Abstract im Vorfeld jedoch «nur» von den im Abstract genannten Personen – der Entscheid, wer dann nach Japan fliegen und moderieren kann, fiel erst später."*** Somit aufnehmen als Konferenz Sonstiges und mit dem Hinweis "Workshop presentation" versehen?!
