Ohio State Univ., Columbus. School of Allied Medical Professions.
Intended as a reference for those interested in designing an occupational therapy curriculum, these curriculum guides are organized from the four levels of performance resulting from an occupational analysis of 15 occupational therapy facilities. These four levels include: (1) occupational therapy aide, (2) occupational therapy technician, (3) occupational therapist, and (4) occupational therapy consultant. The curriculum for each one of these four levels contains an introduction and curriculum modules. The introduction specifies the job description, identifies prior learnings (selection specifications), suggests methods of assembling the modules, and lists affective objectives to be included in each curriculum. The curriculum modules are units of learning which require comprehension and/or application of information. In addition to descriptive information such as job level, module title, and module definition, each module contains: (1) an overall performance objective, (2) related activities, (3) methods for achieving objectives, (4) suggested teaching strategies, (5) suggested evaluation techniques, and (6) suggested instructional media. The suggested teaching strategies, evaluation techniques, and resources are listed in separate publication available as VT 020 340 in this issue. Other related documents are available as VT 020 338, and VT 020 341 in this issue. (SB)
