Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Students were overwhelmingly positive about the design of the seminar assessment, and noted the benefits of investing their time in researching their topic, and also being able to teach their peers. 'Have your Say' feedback and in-class feedback from the student group. The seminar assessment will be continued in T1 2017 with some additional formative processes in place to ensure that additional quality controls optimise the quality of the seminar content. This will ensure that students are conveying correct and contemporary information to their peers and getting the most out of this authentic learning activity.
Four students out of the nine who completed 'Have your Say' indicated that they would prefer to have at least 30 minutes more for the examination. 'Have your Say' feedback The examination will remain within the assessment suite and an additional 30 minutes will be provided in T1 2017.
A number of students reported that they found the workshop exercises conducting critical appraisals of qualitative literature in mental health occupational therapy to be an extremely beneficial learning exercise. 'Have your Say' feedback, direct feedback from students in class and at the end of term, and peer reflection between academic staff. The critical appraisal exercises using the McMaster templates will be continued into T1 2017.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Articulate best practice for the role of occupational therapists when working with people with occupational performance challenges arising from mental health conditions.
  2. Select and implement a range of appropriate assessment tools to determine the impact of a mental health condition on a person’s occupational performance and to identify how the occupational therapist might intervene.
  3. Set client-centred goals based on information obtained from client and their significant others.
  4. Use clinical reasoning to plan an evidence-based intervention for persons with occupational performance challenges arising from a mental health condition.
  5. Integrate principles of occupational justice in the promotion of occupationally-inclusive opportunities for people with mental health conditions.
  6. Articulate the key legislative guidelines, policies, recovery principles and standards that impact on occupational therapy practice in mental health settings.

1 Group Work

Assessment Title Group Work - Formative Hurdle Task
Task Description

You will undertake this hurdle task in order to ensure your seminar preparation is focused and targeted to optimise your own learning in your allocated topic, and to facilitate an optimal learning experience for your peers. Upon receiving your topic, your group will commence research to develop your knowledge in the area. The topics chosen are to extend your knowledge and your peers' knowledge, beyond that which has been taught in your lecture content.

You are required to complete the following steps in order to pass the Hurdle Task and the rubric available to you will support you to ensure you have prepared adequately:

  • Student pair/group to initiate contact with the unit coordinator to confirm a week 5 appointment which must be attended
  • Conduct preliminary research on your seminar topic and present a draft list of relevant readings/citations from the peer-reviewed literature
  • Prepare three learning objectives for your student peers
  • The learning objectives must be aligned to the topic, specific, measurable, unambiguous and succinct
  • Using the proposed learning objectives, draft a general bullet point list of suggested content and interactive activities for your student peers

Achieving these steps will enable your unit coordinator to support you to refine and develop the learning objectives according to your aims for the seminar. Exemplars of high-quality learning objectives from previous students have been included on the Moodle site for you to refer to in developing your own learning objectives. Please note that this is a hurdle task and is pass/fail in order for you to progress to assessment 2 within OCCT13007.


Assessment Due Date Appointments made with unit coordinator during week 5, outside of lecture/tutorial times
Return Date to Students Week 5 Friday (07-Apr-2017)
Weighting Pass/Fail
Assessment Criteria

The criteria for this hurdle task are as follows:

  • student pair/group has initiated contact with the unit coordinator to confirm an appointment within week 5 to outline seminar preparation and present the draft learning objectives. Student pair/group has presented for that discussion
  • preliminary seminar preparation has occurred, as evidenced by presentation of a draft list of relevant readings/citations from the peer-reviewed literature including text books and journals
  • presentation of three learning objectives for peers that will guide the next draft of content, further research, directions for ongoing preparation and interactive activities for peers
  • the learning objectives are measurable, unambiguous, succinct and aligned to the assigned topic
  • the proposed draft learning objectives have informed a draft outline of content and interactive activities for peers within the seminar session. A bullet point list is adequate for this

2 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Written Assessment - Consumer Story - shaping occupational therapy assessment and intervention
Task Description

You are required to read a consumer story, made available to you in the first lecture, and from your reflection of that story, generate a 1500-word report (the inclusion of tables to present your work within the report is acceptable). The report will address the following:

  • An introduction that includes 2-4 narrative paragraphs of your personal reflection on the experiences of this consumer and if and how your perceptions of the impact of mental illness have been influenced by this consumer story. Include a reflection on what you know of depression in this early stage of the unit and any gaps in knowledge you may have
  • Identify which assessments and outcome measures may be appropriate - support your choices with evidence from the literature and then prioritise which would be most appropriate for use with this consumer. Place these in the order in which you would utilise them in practice, with supportive statements to explain your rationale
  • Using this specific consumer story, place yourself in the position of this consumer's occupational therapist. Generate three consumer-centred SMART goals, based on what you know of the consumer story and the hypothetical results of the assessment process. Articulate your professional reasoning for these goals. The SMART goals should be specific, measurable, activity-based, with a review plan and timeframe
  • Reflect on your knowledge gaps at this early part of term and develop a brief learning plan (three to four specific strategies) to help you obtain that knowledge by the end of term

3 Presentation and Written Assessment

Assessment Title Student-led seminar assessment
Task Description

You will undertake this assessment in pairs or groups (depending on enrolled numbers). Groups will deliver a student-led seminar during the tutorial time allocated to this unit. The seminars will be 45 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes for discussion and questions/answers, and must not exceed 60 minutes in total. Groups will run these seminars over the course of Weeks 7-10 of term. Groups will be allocated by the unit coordinator in readiness for week 1 lectures. Topics will be discussed in class in week 1. All groups will be advised of topic and week allocation by the end of week 1 of term.

The key aim of each seminar is to teach peers about contemporary mental health practice in occupational therapy. The seminar topics have been chosen by the unit coordinator in consultation with industry stakeholders. You must complete the following tasks as a group:

  1. Perform preliminary research on the allocated seminar topic
  2. Complete the Hurdle Assessment Task in week 5 which contains specific requirements for preparation of this seminar
  3. Generate a presentation for your student peers which will address those learning objectives
  4. The presentation must include substantial, evidence-based content, and interactive activities for students to consolidate learning and reinforce the learning objectives you have developed
  5. Each seminar must be no less than 45 minutes’ duration and the total time must not exceed 60 minutes
  6. You must be able to proffer appropriate questions to the class to help you determine if learning outcomes have been met. You must also demonstrate an adequate knowledge of the material to respond to questions from the class group

The written component of this task will be a one-page A4 or A3 poster as though you were attracting registrants to a professional seminar and informing them of the proposed content. The professional poster will highlight the 'seminar overview' and articulate the 'key learning outcomes' that participants will leave with following your seminar. This part of the task will allow you to demonstrate creative skills in written expression, while communicating key messages succinctly and effectively. The poster must be submitted electronically via Moodle and an A3 coloured copy should be made available for peers on both campuses for the day of the seminar.

Guidelines for your poster are as follows:

  • Your title should be concise but must effectively convey the question that generates your presentation – the audience must be able to grasp the overall message at a glance
  • Provide an overview of the main content that will be covered in the seminar
  • Communicate what the attendees will get out of their attendance – what new knowledge will they acquire? What skills might they consolidate?
  • Don’t forget the power of graphics in this poster
  • Please try to keep the proportion of text to graphics at 60%-40%

The seminar topics are as follows:

  1. The role of the consumer in mental health services
  2. Sensory approaches in mental health – what is the current state of evidence?
  3. Assessment tools and outcome measures within the MOHO
  4. Applying transdisciplinary strategies used in mental health practice within an occupation-based framework
  5. Cognitive assessments used to support people with schizophrenia – how do they inform occupation-based interventions?
  6. Special issues and future directions in older persons’ mental health
  7. Vocational rehabilitation and supported employment for persons with severe mental illness

Self and Peer Assessment (SPA) is part of this assessment. You will complete the online self and peer assessment on the OCCT13007 Moodle site the day prior to your presentation. This enables you to rate your own performance in teamwork and also rate your team members’ performance. The results for this will then be incorporated into the rubric and contribute toward the overall grade.

Assessment Due Date Pairs/groups will be allocated to present seminars over tutorial times in weeks 7-10 inclusive
Return Date to Students Marks will be returned the week following the seminars
