It’s been a long time between posts!

I’m a bit surprised to see how long it has been since I last posted. Life must have been busy!

As the regular visitors to this blog will know I work at Otago Polytechnic. In the last two weeks I have been lucky enough to have been at our third year student conference called Kiwi-IngenuOT. Where the students all present using blogs, posters, podcasts, video’s and aural presentations. The conference saw an amazing range of topics combined with great use of the mediums to get their message across.

Then today I got to hear our second year students presenting about the fieldwork placements they have just returned from. It reinforced the incredible range of things occupational therapists do and therefore the range of placements on offer for students. It was great to see their grasp on the value of meaningful occupation in people’s lives.

Whilst we are on the topic of student work, watch this space, I have been the sponsor of a third year project and am looking forward to being able to link you into the work they have been doing.

Hopefully the next posting will utilize one of the half written posts sitting in the drafts section of this blog 🙂
