Can I Achieve My Professional Goals with an Online OTD Program?
Can I work on my professional goals while I am in the EKU OTD program?
Is the coursework really personalized for me?
The short answer is, "yes!Students in the EKU Online OTD program engage in core coursework that is focused on the themes of occupation-based practice, diversity, leadership, and reasoning. They also participate in an Applied Leadership Experience (ALE) and complete a Capstone Project.
Engagement in these experiences supports both the program mission to create occupation-based practitioners who will be ethical leaders of change in occupational therapy services for diverse populations, and the four OTD Program outcomes:
• In OTS 902 Leadership Seminar II, you will begin to explore your options for leadership experiences through development of a professional development plan. You will assess population needs to support occupation-based programming in preparation for carrying out your Capstone Project. And you will finalize your objectives for Applied Leadership Experience.
• In OTS 903 Capstone Development, OTS 904 Capstone Implementation, and OTS 906 Capstone, you will work one on one with your faculty mentor to design and carry out your capstone project.
• OTS 905 Applied Leadership Experience is an experiential learning field-based experience that you will custom-design to meet your own professional goals. Course emphases are on ethical leadership within change and excellence in occupation-based services for diverse populations.
