Learning Outcomes

At the successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

1. Describe the place of computer and digital technology as a tool for facilitating participation in occupation and enhancing therapy services.
2. Demonstrate competence in the production of a work using computer or digital technology.
3. Identify and consider ethical issues related to the use of technology with client groups.
4. Identify simple adaptations to the environment and software to enable clients to access technology.
