OCC1012 Occupational Science

Second Semester: Unit Coordinator

In this unit students learn about the principles and mechanisms underlying the relationship between persons, their environments and occupations; and how it relates to human health and wellbeing. The concept of occupation is described, and how people shape and are shaped by their engagement in occupation and their environmental context. Students engage in experiential exercises to support their learning of concepts, including participation in a community-based volunteering experience.


OCC1032 Occupational Development Across the Lifespan

Second Semester: Unit Coordinator

Development across the lifespan examines how individuals change and develop as they age - from infancy to old age. This unit explores the psychological and occupational processes inherent in development, and in doing so examines the progressive cognitive, emotional, behavioural, psychosocial and occupational changes that occur with age. A broad range of topics are covered by this unit, including: motor skill and other psycho-physiological developmental processes, problem solving, language acquisition, abstract thought, identity development and formation, and relationships.


OCC2014 Occupational Performance, Capabilities and Components

First Semester: Unit Coordinator

Students are introduced to mechanisms and consequences of problems related to mental, sensory, cardiovascular, respiratory, neurological and biomechanical capacities that underpin occupational engagement and occupational performance.

Students integrate this knowledge into occupational therapy and related theories/models of practice.

They develop clinical questions, and acquire knowledge and skills from the process of describing and evaluating occupational performance, and assessing occupational engagement/performance. Students will explore different contexts in which participation in occupation takes place.

The unit uses an integrated scenario/case-based learning approach.


OCC3062 Participatory Community Practice 1: Development

Second Semester: Project Supervisor

Students work in collaboration with an agency to address a specific need while completing this participatory practice placement. Students are allocated a project from an issue identified by the agency. Tthe first phase of project management begins with contacting the agency then collaborating with agency members to "scope" an organisationally useful, and occupationally relevant project or program. Students function as project managers and are required to liaise with a variety of stakeholders to develop a project proposal that meets the needs and aims of the agency.


OCC4071 Participatory Community Practice 2: Implementation

First Semester: Project Supervisor

Students develop skills in project implementation and work within a community partnership model to address a community/population health based issue for the collaborating agency. Students apply and further develop the knowledge, skills and expertise necessary for them to implement, evaluate and report on a community orientated project. It is expected that students will act as the project manager whilst also communicating, negotiating and collaborating with agency staff and other relevant stakeholders.
