Fieldwork Educator Incentives
The faculty of the University of North Dakota view fieldwork as an essential component of the student's learning process. We know that student learning is enhanced when there are multiple connections between faculty and students, and between faculty and fieldwork educators. We value opportunities to recognize and support your teaching and clinical expertise, and opportunities to partner with you in developing quality learning experiences for our students. To this end, we have identified our top incentives for you to offer fieldwork learning for UND OT students.
- Certificates of appreciation recognizing hours spent in Level II student instruction. Level I certificates also available by request.
- UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences library privileges are now available upon your request.
- Opportunities to participate in research publications and presentations with OT faculty and students.
- Opportunities to partner with faculty and students in scholarship efforts. Faculty are always looking for clinical scenarios/problems for students to address in graduate scholarship.
- Access to a list of textbooks recommended by faculty which represent professional practice updates across the curriculum.
- Access to a departmental newsletter featuring the accomplishments of fieldwork educators, alumni and faculty.
- Sponsorship of regional AOTA fieldwork educator certificate workshops and support in the form of a $100.00 voucher for all UND fieldwork educators.
