Intended for occupational therapy and occupational therapy assistant educators, the Occupational Therapy Curriculum Design Framework presents a practical approach to designing occupational therapy curricula with attention to influential factors that should be considered throughout the process. The framework provides an overarching view of occupational therapy curriculum design that can be adapted to a faculty’s vision for their particular institution. Although the unique features of a curriculum will vary from institution to institution, foundational core elements should be present in all curricula. With this in mind, faculty should be deliberate, reflective, and organized when crafting their own occupational therapy curriculum. This framework offers reflection questions, resources, and curriculum examples that may be applied to occupational therapy curricula at all degree levels. This framework does not dictate program content or implementation and is not intended to be used as a guide to ensure compliance with accreditation standards.
