Hello everybody! It's been more than a year or two since I last hosted an #OTALK. And today's topic will be different from the ones I did in my recent past... since it won't be a media club session. Who's here today? :)

@georgiaannv @BillWongOT #otalk well Bill is hosting the chat so I thought I’d hang about 😀
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
Without further aido, we will start with my first question. Q1. Background time- Are you a student or a practitioner? Are you in academia right now? Are any of you interested in a career as an academic in the future, or have considered it in the past? #OTALK
Carolyn is an OT @CeeCeeOT
Checking in! This topic is definitely of interest to me though it may not happen for some time
Samantha Pywell @smileyfacehalo
@BillWongOT Hi everyone! #OTalk

@sherlynmelody @georgiaannv I hope I am not a dinosaur in the hosting department, since I was absent in this department all of last year and this year until today. #otalk

@BillWongOT #otalk, I’m a practitioner, not in academia, but hoping to have a student in the near future, not quite academia, but as near as I think I’ll get at the moment

@BillWongOT @sherlynmelody You’ve got this dude! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
To answer my question- when I started OT school, my classmates & instructors thought I would be a researcher because of my stats background in the past. But, while I informally still do some research today, having placement students was what led me to think about teaching. #OTALK

@BillWongOT #otalk so maybe once I get my student I might get the academia bug.
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
I remembered one of my CPD mentors said to me- I need to have versatility in what I am teaching, particularly as a full time academic. So, I have spent the last 5-6 years trying to find what I might like to teach. #OTALK
@mileswashbrook @mileswashbrook
@BillWongOT #OTalk I'm here Bill, I have had a busy day and there might be sport and work on my feed but I'll try and concentrate !
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@sherlynmelody oh yeah- that can happen. I have a placement student for the last 2 years. I imagined that scenario as if I had office hours and students would come to my office for questions. I figured this would be a good transferable skill to develop. #otalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@BillWongOT I'm a student! I never thought about a career in academia but the more I learn about OT the more interested I become in new research so yes this maybe something I consider in the future. #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Hi all sorry we’re late- but Bill seems to have it under control #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Question one #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
But through talking to my friends, I have gotten to know that some OT (or OTA) departments in the USA can be more competitive in terms of application process than others. So, ever since I qualified, I tried to slowly build a competitive CV. #OTALK

My dream situation is to return to University of Southern California. However, I don't feel a return to my alma mater is in the plans yet... as I felt that I have the most career successes when expectations on me are lower. So, that is why I chose Stanbridge University. #OTALK

All righty... let's move on to question 2. I know I answered a bit of this question in the last few minutes. Q2. If you are in academia now, what led you to be interested in it? For those of you who are not in academia yet, what prevented you from going towards this? #OTALK
#OTalk @OTalk_
From the answers to Q1 it looks like there are plenty of different ways to be involved in academia 😊 #OTalk

Future goals! This may be interesring for any of us planning on a career in academia after practice 🌍 #otalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
Question 2! Asking the ever-important facilitators/barriers question 🤔 #OTalk

@mileswashbrook @mileswashbrook
@BillWongOT #OTalk Who is purchasing the research and why ?
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@SPOTeurope this definitely was my future goal once upon a time. That was why I pushed myself to do a post professional clinical doctorate in the USA ASAP. At the time, I didn't know at the time that this effort allows me to have flexibility about what type of programs I can teach. #otalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@El_Cecil_ in my early OT studies, I know my instructors quietly hoped for me would go for a PhD. After all, my stats background can come in handy... as they thought I would help develop some cool and relevant assessments. But, the transition to OT was what got me. #otalk

#OTalk @OTalk_
@SPOTeurope Is there anything you think would help you feel you more confident? (e.g. more preparation for academic careers in your course?) #OTalk
Eleanor Cecil @El_Cecil_
@BillWongOT Would certainly be hugely advantageous. Are you doing /considering it now Bill? #OTalk
💚🇯🇲 𝕊𝕙𝕖𝕣𝕝𝕪𝕟 🇬🇧💚 @sherlynmelody
@BillWongOT #otalk I’m not keen on studying, I struggle with academia. I found my OT degree quite difficult and stressful.
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@SPOTeurope well- a not so positive factor was... I did not want to take the GRE again. It's hard to replicate a perfect score on Math while I didn't know how much improvements I would make over my crappy verbal session. So, I gave myself a 2 year window. #otalk
Eleanor Cecil @El_Cecil_
@BillWongOT Oops forgot #OTalk there ⬆️
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@BillWongOT Well, I'm not in academia obviously but I'm interested in it because of the work I’m doing with the online community and my blog. But what's inspiring me to get more involved in are events such as #OTalk itself!
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@El_Cecil_ My masters grade point average was too low. I was a bottom dweller in OT school back in the day. So, that plan was scrapped after semester 1! #otalk
Carolyn is an OT @CeeCeeOT
@OTalk_ @SPOTeurope I attended the #NWLresearch symposium in Sept for non medical healthcare professionals. This certainly helped to boost my confidence that I could consider an academic career as seminars were designed to encourage us pursue that avenue #OTalk

@El_Cecil_ absolutely! I was open to my current program director that I need to adjust to the culture of my uni (since I was used to traditional uni's in the past and I only got bits and pieces from my previous placement students). So, she co-taught with me for my first class. #otalk

@El_Cecil_ and on the be kind to myself comment- one time I mentioned that patients can use walkers to go up the stairs. Instead of being hard on myself, my students used that as a blooper moment that also served as a bonding moment (as I let my students poke fun of me). #otalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
Another tip- if you take students from uni's around you that you didn't attend in the past, use down time to ask questions about the culture of their uni's. They should kindly give you pointers, usually. #OTALK
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT

@BillWongOT Before my OT career, I taught/coached a sport to all ages and really enjoyed sharing community knowledge, welcoming newcomers to the sport, etc. Since becoming an OT, that feeling just extended to future OTs. #OTalk
Adam DePrimo @adamdePrimo
@BillWongOT Find some mentors, take pedagogy specific continuing ed or courses. It's just like practicing OT - it's easier when you have some training and help behind you to get started. #OTalk
Ryan Lavalley PhD, OTR/L @ryan_lavalley
@BillWongOT Im a practitioner & academic. Im currently a PostDoc focused on community practice & aging. I started out not interested in academia but found my practice area of interest needed more evidence and research to make it a more viable practice option so here I am & I love it. #OTalk

@BillWongOT Delayed replies to this #OTalk as had commitments during live chat. I have 19 years experience in practice as a clinican and for past three years have been an academic lecturing @DerbyOT
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@gemOT18 @OTalk_ Sounds a great idea @gemOT18. I offered to help my local uni in as many ways as I could before transitioning and definitely think that helped. Uni’s and the students benefit from input and good partnerships with clinicians and you get to know more if it’s for you. Win-win #OTalk
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@BillWongOT I transitioned to lecturing as I had always liked having students, completing my MSc had reminded me that I like learning and being in an education focused environment, and I liked the different opportunities that being in academia would bring #OTalk
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@preston_jenny @BillWongOT @amymiller_OT I love questions that make me think from students. Think as a lecturer I don’t always have to know everything as often another student might have a good answer too and my role can be to facilitate that discussion. #OTalk
Ruth Hawley @Ruth_Hawley
@preston_jenny @BillWongOT @El_Cecil_ Oh yes, love this answer.☝️👍 being perfect impossible. Just bring what you have and create a shared learning environment. #OTalk
