On arriving at the destination of the centennial vision: Navigational landmarks to guide occupational therapy education


Journal Article (Review)

The Centennial Vision for occupational therapy in 2017 is like a topographical map for the profession. It holds up a destination toward which practitioners, educators, administrators, and researchers collectively travel. Arriving at the destination will require a careful read of the map to identify suppositions about learning it contains; then a careful selection of theory and instructional processes that are tightly aligned with those learning suppositions. This paper examines learning suppositions within the Vision and offers subject-centered and self-authorship as two conceptual landmarks tightly aligned to the Vision's destination on which educators can set their sights, and take steps toward, each day in the classroom. © 2010 Informa Healthcare USA, Inc.
