Professor Sylvia Rodger (Project Leader),


The OT academic leaders network (OTALN) aims to capitalise on the substantive work already undertaken to date to develop the occupational therapy academy in Australia and New Zealand by building on and extending the emerging leaders network (ELN) developed as part of Sylvia Rodger's one year ALTC Fellowship program. The involvement of new, emerging and established academic leaders will provide opportunities for mentoring, career development, and discussion of curriculum, teaching and learning matters across the academy.  The network will draw on the expertise of past and current ALTC fellows and project leaders beyond the discipline of OT, especially in academic leadership development, work integrated learning, and establishing work ready graduates.
