The ebook is divided into three main sections—past, present, and future—and explores: The history of occupational therapy education, including the impact of critical philosophies, their association to higher education and healthcare, and the development of accreditation standards and professional degree programs; Present trends and challenges in healthcare and higher education, including linking the gap between education and practice, expanding educational research, the use of competency exams, and promoting diversity and inclusion among students and faculty; and International perspectives on the development and future of occupational therapy education from leading scholars in Australia, Africa, North America, South America, Europe, and Southeast Asia, including trends in educational technologies, fieldwork education and requirements, and interprofessional education.
