OTD 632 Doctoral Residency 1: Needs Assessment


1 cr.


Summer 1

Course Description

This is the first course in the Doctoral Residency sequence. During this course, students will work with their assigned faculty mentor and the Director of Fieldwork/Experiential Education to identify and procure a facility/site at which he/she will ultimately complete the Doctoral Experiential Component/Residency Implementation portion of the program. Once the site is procured, students will identify a site mentor, who will work with the student throughout the Doctoral Experiential process. Using the skills/knowledge regarding needs assessment from OTD 630 Leadership: Needs Assessment and Program Development (taken concurrently with this course), students will conduct a needs assessment, analyze the information, and disseminate the results through a scholarly report.
