Welcome to OTepp

Since 2008, OTepp has helped IEOTs from across Canada and around the world prepare for occupational therapy practice in Canada.  Delivered through the School of Rehabilitation Science at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, participants attend classes online in real time. Using self-directed learning principles and problem-based learning, participants will explore professional practice issues, competencies, models and theories, and clinical reasoning.  Eligible participants may engage in an 8-week supervised practicum.  Successful completion of Courses 1 through 5 will lead to an undergraduate certificate from McMaster University.

Here on the OTepp Learning Centre, you will find news items, announcements, class slides and recordings, and resources.  Feel free to edit your profile and participate in the discussion forum.  To access courses and WebEx Conferencing, a username and password will be provided.
