As a fieldwork educator, some of the best knowledge and lessons to share with students are your own. In order to help equip you to be a fieldwork educator you may participate in the Preceptor Education Program (PEP) or participate in an AOTA’s Fieldwork Educators Certificate Program (FWECP). Read more about each below.
Preceptor Education Program (PEP)
This free online multi-media program offers quick tips and practical downloadable tools. Designed by a Canadian university, the eight 30-minute modules can be completed online or printed off and used at your convenience. The program will assist you in developing learning objectives, fostering clinical reasoning and reflective practice, developing or updating student programs and navigating through this three month collaborative relationship with your intern.
AOTA’s Fieldwork Educators Certificate Program (FWECP)
AOTA’s voluntary credentialing program for fieldwork educators, Fieldwork Educators Certificate Program (FWECP), is specifically designed for educators to advance their skills.
