Making the Most of Fieldwork Education gives practical guidance to students, taking them though the process of planning, preparing for, experiencing and evaluating fieldwork education. Practical exercises are included to assist students and enable them to learn through a range of experiences. Case stories also provide examples from practice. Students are encouraged to take control of the fieldwork experience to make informed choices about their learning and to use skills of inquiry at all stages of the fieldwork process. Fieldwork educators as well as students in the disciplines of Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Rehabilitation and Osteopathy will find this book invaluable as it gives such a practical and accessible approach to this aspect of education.
