Position: Sessional Instructor

OCCU 6002.03 Social Influences on Occupational Performance
Summer (July-August) 2017

Department: School of Occupational Therapy

Pay rate: In accordance with CUPE agreement

Work Assignment: This is a 3 week intensive in-class course (Mon-Fri 9:00-12:00) held from July 24-August 14, 2017. The instructor is responsible for all aspects of teaching and administration for the class, including preparation for lectures and evaluation of students. The course content will be developed, but can be tailored to the instructor’s interests and expertise.

In occupational therapy we understand ‘occupation’ as those things people do to occupy their time, attention, and energy. Occupations are meaningful activities. Occupational therapists work with people whose engagement in occupations has somehow been curtailed, often by disability, injury or illness.

This course explores the ways occupational meaning, engagement and performance are shaped by ‘social location’ – race, class, gender, sexual orientation, culture, age, ability/disability – and the experiences, values, assumptions, expectations that connect to social location. We explore social influences on occupation for both clients and health professionals, as well as the impact on provider-client encounters.

Requirements of position: PhD or Masters degree. Previous teaching experience (especially with graduate students) preferred.
