Research Description:

Caroline Storr, MBA, OT(c), erg, is an Assistant Professor and the Academic Clinical Coordinator of Occupational Therapy at McGill University. Caroline has worked as a clinician with a focus in developmental pediatrics, new program development and private practice. She has expanded the opportunities for international student learning in a variety of practice roles both in new and fellowship funded projects. 

Research interests:

International fieldwork, models of student supervision, community service learning, mentoring, teaching and technology. Fieldwork education is constantly changing yet change itself is hard to implement.  In an effort to promote continuous quality improvement in the clinical teaching setting while assuring that we meet diverse client needs, we need to regularly examine the changing forces and adapt our teaching to new learners and new ways in the workplace. What are the current benefits and challenges of international OT fieldwork?  This current study is helping to highlight factors for consideration in planning international electives. I like to explore clinically relevant questions.

Research Themes:

  • Web-based education
  • Mentoring relationships in the workplace
  • Collaborative models of student supervision
  • Health care reform
  • Clinical business development
  • Impact of international fieldwork on student learning
