Summary of "Perceptions of occupational therapy threshold concepts by students in role-emerging placements in schools: A qualitative investigation."

Traversing threshold concepts has been identified as crucial in becoming an occupational therapist. To support this learning, previous research has emphasised the value of students engaging in practice-based learning, accompanying reflection, and a curriculum which makes threshold concepts explicit to students. Role-emerging placements form part of students' practice-based learning in many universities and could offer a valuable opportunity for students to learn threshold concepts. Understanding the value of threshold concepts to enhance role-emerging placement learning from both the students' and educators' perspectives warrants further research. The aim of this study was to examine how occupational therapy students on role-emerging placements in school settings experienced applying threshold concepts and how it impacted on their learning.
