In this mixed-methods study, we explored the extent to which an experiential learning course improved professional reasoning, using self-determination theory (SDT) as a frame of reference. Quantitative results indicated a statistically significant increase in professional reasoning. Findings from reflective journals indicate a pathway to professional reasoning through SDT. OT educators can utilize the results of this study to better facilitate student development of professional reasoning.
