The COVID-19 global pandemic has had large impacts on practice education opportunities for students enrolled in health professional courses. In response, educators and clinical supervisors have been required to change the ways in which pre-clinical and clinical education opportunities are delivered. This chapter presents several methods (tele-placement, tele-supervision, online simulated placements, and online facilitated reflective learning) which were adopted for occupational therapy students in response to the impacts of COVID-19 and provides practice examples implemented in Australia alongside lessons learned.
