Position:         Sessional Instructor
OCCU 5007.03 Research Approaches for Occupational Therapists
Winter term 2018

Department:    School of Occupational Therapy

Pay rate:          In accordance with CUPE agreement

Work Assignment:  The sessional instructor will be responsible for the delivery of OCCU 5007.03 (Research Approaches for Occupational Therapists) and for the evaluation of students in the winter term 2018.

This course introduces theories and epistemologies underlying positivist and naturalist (quantitative and qualitative) approaches to research, particularly focusing on the issues that arise for research on occupation and in occupational therapy. We explore tensions between objectivity and subjectivity, the value of standardized measures, insider/ outsider issues unique to clinician-researchers, concerns about inclusion/ exclusion, ethical issues in research, and particularly power concerns inherent in research. We examine the epistemological and methodological ‘fit’ of various research approaches with occupational therapy, asking how research may best move the profession forward. The focus in this course is on critical appraisal of the social, political, economic, and ethical matters that shape the research enterprise. The aim is to develop astute consumers and critics of scholarly research.

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