Occupational Therapy Delegation

An Occupational Therapy delegation from Argentina will be visiting the University of Western Sydney and La Trobe University in 2015 (9-13 March) to evaluate the points of possible collaboration in curriculum development, practicum placements, student and academic staff exchange, and forging innovation in shared coursework development. Discussions will also be held with Occupational Therapy Australia and the World Federation of Occupational Therapists.

During this intensive visit the delegates will familiarise themselves with the OT programs offered by the relevant Australian and Argentine universities, identify points of mutually beneficial collaboration that is academically and financially sound, explore joint innovative collaboration in unit delivery via on line education to reach the English and Spanish global market, and explore the opportunities such collaboration offers to the occupational therapy profession and the mission of the World Federation of Occupational Therapists.
