RT @DerbyOTsociety: It is our online #OTalk session tonight! 'CPD Opportunities for students' 8:00pm. We can't wait to chat with everyone!…
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
Hi everyone! We are @LaurenemilyOT @JadeElizabethOT and @EmRodriguesOT committee of the Derby OT Society! We are looking forward to talking all things CPD with you tonight! #OTalk
Lauren Scarisbrick 💙 @LaurenemilyOT
@DerbyOTsociety @JadeElizabethOT We are really excited to be hosting and seeing your responses! #OTalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
Ready to join! #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
Question 1! What CPD events have you been able to access whilst being a student, has this been internal or external to your curriculum? #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
#otalk hello folks!
Student Platform OT @SPOTeurope
@DerbyOTsociety @LaurenemilyOT @JadeElizabethOT We are here!! #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@DerbyOTsociety @LaurenemilyOT @JadeElizabethOT Hello! 👋 I'm an OT student at @OT_UEA, looking forward to the #OTalk this evening! Thank for you for hosting on such a useful topic!
Lauren Scarisbrick 💙 @LaurenemilyOT
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk I feel have been able to access lots of different CPD events throughout my time as a student. Our curriculum has had CPD opportinites such as projects with international students and Interprofessional learning events.
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@DerbyOTsociety For me, primarily will be conferences- we have twice a year from US state associations and annually with AOTA. #otalk
Lauren Scarisbrick 💙 @LaurenemilyOT
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk There has also been a broad variety of external CPD events such as ones from the society, the OT show and conferences. Also twitter has provided online CPD events or campaigns for us to be involved with as students.
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@DerbyOTsociety @LaurenemilyOT @JadeElizabethOT 👋👋 hi I'm an OT student at York St John :) looking forward to tonight's #OTalk
Hello my name is Deb @debbieduckie
@BillWongOT I think it’s missing! I can’t find them #otalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
#OTalk Many of my CPD activities are regarding internationalisation which are usually external since it is an extra opportunity to join international events.
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
@BillWongOT Amazing - what do you think you gain from attending conferences? #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
RT @MegB95: #OTalk tonight is being hosted by a brilliant bunch of ladies and about CPD development opportunities. Definitely worth joinin…
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@DerbyOTsociety A major CPD even is @OTalk_ itself which I attend every week. I also attend @shout_team talks I was hoping to attend more conferences over the summer but now they’re cancelled for obvious reasons. #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
RT @Ruth_Hawley: Great #OTalk to participate in if you can. Hope it goes well guys! https://t.co/V35ozP4PjF
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
#OTalk such as conferences, mobility weeks and offcourse @SPOTeurope
☯︎ R͜͡a͜͡c͜͡h͜͡e͜͡l͜͡ ☯︎︎ @RachelOTstudent
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk it has been a mix between the two, have found a lot of opportunities through Twitter & RCOT regional groups - went to see @RebeccaTwinley in York, attended a @Bobath_Centre seminar at RDH and there have been plenty at uni
Jade Nixon @JadeElizabethOT
@DerbyOTsociety @LaurenemilyOT Hi everyone! Really excited to discuss CPD opportunities on tonight's #OTalk!
Ellie Dixon @EllieDixon_OT
@GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I agree! I've found it difficult to know what to access as part of my CPD but the #OTalk discussions and the SHOUT talks have been really useful!
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@DerbyOTsociety Our @UEAOTSoc ran a talk before Covid19, but since then, I've been loving the @SPOTeurope weekly series! And of course #OTalk most weeks... we've had ongoing CPD within our course too, from @JonLarner et al!
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
@Cass_OT__ Sounds great! What type of international activities have you been involved in - and how do you think it has impacted you differently to events closer to home? We would love to hear about your experiences! #OTalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@DerbyOTsociety So many! With uni we've had various workshops, and with the @YSJOTSOC we've visit services in York, and had a guest speaker. I also went to the RCOT NYR roadshow, and the RCOT 2019 conference.. all amazing opportunities #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
@GeorgiaVineOT @OTalk_ @shout_team Sounds great - we love to attend @shout_team talks if we can! #OTalk
Lauren Scarisbrick 💙 @LaurenemilyOT
@DerbyOTsociety DOTS has provided different CPD opportinites. Our three aims Inform, Impact, Inspire allow us to provide students and professionals with CPD events. Inform allows educational development, Impact is our charity fundraising and Inspire allows for networking to take place! #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Yeah it’s just about exploring really I find looking for events on Twitter is the best way and I always look at anything happening near my in OT News. But it’s just having the confidence to do it #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
We wonder if there is a place for information around what to access and where as a part of CPD for students e.g. a guideline #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I also go to events with @CPTeensUK #OTalk
Meg @MegB95
I have been to an incredible amount of CPD events thanks to @DerbyOTsociety (My favourites being @Aerobility with @KaptainKevman and Community Mental health with @RamsellEleanor). I was also able to attend a conference on Cerebal palsy and a lecture with @BNightsCRPS #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
@anyadei @UEAOTSoc @SPOTeurope @JonLarner Sounds great - what sort of things to you cover for CPD within your course? #OTalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk In my opinion international experience is obligated as an OT since our clients are diverse. By attending international events you learn more about other perspectives in stead of origin perspectives. I must emphasise that international experience can also be found at home!
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
This just shows how many opportunities there are within universities and beyond! It is great :D #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@DerbyOTsociety I particularly like the AOTA/NBCOT student conclave. Being a conference exclusively for students nationally in the USA was a huge benefit... and of course, I still keep in touch with some of the attendees today. #otalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@anyadei @DerbyOTsociety @UEAOTSoc @SPOTeurope @JonLarner Ah that’s great to hear Anya! #OTalk #Spotties
Ellie Dixon @EllieDixon_OT
@GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I'll try looking on Twitter! I agree with you about OT news, that's been a really great resource for me too! #OTalk

Student Platform OT @SPOTeurope
We attend @enOThe1 each year and this such an amazing event for CPD in many ways! And also can open so many doors for your future career and CPD #OTalk
Ellie Bamber @EllietheOT
@Cass_OT__ @DerbyOTsociety I took a Canadian student though the Erasmus program. Very interesting experience to learn and reflect upon the differences #OTalk
Katie Moffat @Katie_Moffat
@GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Agree with this too! I've found #OTalk so easy to engage with every week!
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
#OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Cass_OT__ @anyadei @DerbyOTsociety @UEAOTSoc @SPOTeurope @JonLarner haha... I know the USA equivalent will be ASD'ers. (ASD in this context will be Assembly of Student Delegates in AOTA). #otalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@EllieDixon_OT @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Are you allowed to note #OTalk as an CPD activity?
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
Agreed! Social media is a great way to access CPD and also find out about it! #OTalk
Ellie Dixon @EllieDixon_OT
@DerbyOTsociety It would be really useful to have a resource like that, although I did find the AOTA guidelines to be useful. #OTalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@Katie_Moffat @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I've loved getting involved with #OTalk - they vary so much and have a great range of experience from so many different OTs who join! Their knowledge is invaluable and I've thoroughly enjoyed getting to know some of them :)
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@Cass_OT__ @EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Yes you can download the reflection form on their website #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@DerbyOTsociety @UEAOTSoc @SPOTeurope @JonLarner We get really useful blogs from the teaching team on different prompts or points for reflection, to help build our confidence with creating our CPD portfolio, which can feel daunting at first, but starting to get into the swing of it! #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
Great perspective and great point! Internationalisation doesn't always mean travelling! Thanks Cass #OTalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@LaurenemilyOT @DerbyOTsociety My university @HvA_Ergo also provides CPD activities for students, they are willing to think along #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
RT @DerbyOTsociety: Agreed! Social media is a great way to access CPD and also find out about it! #OTalk
Jade Nixon @JadeElizabethOT
@DerbyOTsociety DOTS was founded to provide further experiential opportunities by providing educational workshops/seminars (inform), building networks through family socials (inspire), and to support local and global communities through fundraising and awareness (impact) 💚 #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@DerbyOTsociety If I were a student today, I will also add TEDCircles to the list. It's an amazing opportunity to meet strangers across the globe. It's basically a live media club with TED or TEDx talk. #otalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
Thanks guys for the amazing responses for Qu1! It is great to see conversations merging but we are also going to add Qu2 in just a second! #OTalk

@DerbyOTsociety RCOT has short courses and articles to enhance specialist knowledge on areas of practice. For example, on models or approaches #OTalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety Would you have a link to that at all, Ellie? Sounds interesting :) #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
Qu 2: How easy do you think it is to access CPD as a student alongside your studies? #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@Laura_Does @Katie_Moffat @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Me too! I always try and reflect on them because it’s just so valuable #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Cass_OT__ @LaurenemilyOT @DerbyOTsociety @HvA_Ergo I should do an inservice to them about TEDCircles. #otalk
Lauren Scarisbrick 💙 @LaurenemilyOT
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk I personally have found it easy to manage attendance of CPD events through managing my time and ensuring I put my studies first. Also, through attendance of CPD events this has helped me to develop my knowledge for my assignments.
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@GeorgiaVineOT @EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Ah woah that’s pretty awesome! I don’t believe we can use this for CPD activities #OTalk seeing there is already a difference!
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@anyadei @DerbyOTsociety @UEAOTSoc @SPOTeurope @JonLarner That sounds like a great resource #OTalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
RT @DerbyOTsociety: Great perspective and great point! Internationalisation doesn't always mean travelling! Thanks Cass #OTalk
Jade Nixon @JadeElizabethOT
@DerbyOTsociety It can be a balance. You have to manage your studies alongside life, with some people balancing more than others (work, family, etc). But as OTs, it is part of the process learning to occupationally balance, fitting CPD learning into that! #OTalk
Ellie Bamber @EllietheOT
@Cass_OT__ @DerbyOTsociety I was her educator and she came as he placement. #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@DerbyOTsociety @UEAOTSoc @SPOTeurope @JonLarner I also went to a @RYASailability conference - which was great. It wasn't an OT event, but helped me learn about so many adaptive technologies and seeing how others see what we call enabling occupations! #OTalk
Ellie Dixon @EllieDixon_OT
@Laura_Does @DerbyOTsociety Yes I'm sure I do! I'll have a look and sent it over to you! #OTalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@LaurenemilyOT @DerbyOTsociety and this is a common thing when you are on the other side being qualified too. Many are focusing on their careers first before thinking about getting involved in the profession later. #otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety Thank you 😁 #OTalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@EllietheOT @DerbyOTsociety Ah I see, anyway really cool! #OTalk
Hello my name is Deb @debbieduckie
@DerbyOTsociety It fitted in quite well for me. #otalk. Recognising those opportunities was the trick. I found attending @shout_team impossible tho, I have a large family and was working as well as studying. #otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@GeorgiaVineOT @Katie_Moffat @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I must be honest I got out of the habit of reflecting on them, but you're right! And I must get back to doing that (tonight) 😄 #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@DerbyOTsociety I will also say- my exposure to conferences early on was what made me a conference junkie now. I feel sad that I won't attend anything live any time soon! #otalk
Lauren Scarisbrick 💙 @LaurenemilyOT
@BillWongOT @DerbyOTsociety Definitely! I aim to keep my passion going for CPD throughout my career but understand the difficulties of getting the right balance #OTalk
Katie Moffat @Katie_Moffat
@DerbyOTsociety My lecturers have kept us up to date with external CPD opportunities, lots of additional training for practice, learning opportunities to apply in uni, tips for reflection and journal clubs! #OTalk

Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@DerbyOTsociety It depends like @OTalk_ is so easy to fit in. But if it’s like a road show it can be hard if it’s not near. I really wanted to go to @NaidexShow last year but couldn’t because I was on placement. I’m hoping to go next time but obviously my studies come first. #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
Good tip! Thanks Bill! #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
#OTalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@DerbyOTsociety Especially as a fresh OT it is student, I remember freaking out whether I’d retrieve enough points for the CPD. When you are more familiar with it, I believe it is more easier to access and find activities and do this beside the studies #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@DerbyOTsociety Hard sometimes as feels like I'm 'developing professionally' just by doing the course itself (although I know CPD is more than that), but when I do extra-curricular CPD, it does help widen my thinking! I can imagine it probably feels like that for years once qualified too! #OTalk
Katie Moffat @Katie_Moffat
@Laura_Does @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I have a long list of 'to do' reflections! Now that I'm finished exams I'm looking forw as rd to working through them! #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @NaidexShow Not just this having a physical disability makes it harder as I can’t just hop on the train #OTalk
Jade Nixon @JadeElizabethOT
@DerbyOTsociety Personally, I found it challenging at times. I aimed to put academia first, but also balanced family time, seeing friends, working for the SU, and general life! DOTS was a great asset, because the variety and regualarity meant I could attend ss much as I wanted #OTalk
#OTalk @OTalk_
@Cass_OT__ @EllieDixon_OT @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @shout_team Definitely! It's most certainly a CPD activity #Otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@DerbyOTsociety The accessibiloty of the events/opportunities hasn't been a problem for me, though I can understand why it would be for some. With the YSJ OT Society, we try and think about how to make our educational events accessible for everyone #OTalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
That’s a great idea! #OTalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@debbieduckie @DerbyOTsociety @shout_team The student days are good times in practicing digging deep to participate in OT activities we SHOULD participate. I know I am an example of that now- by still getting involved in the TED community. Getting involved in that realm is extremely intense! #otalk
Student Platform OT @SPOTeurope
Thanks for the shoutout Anya! 🤩😉 #Otalk
☯︎ R͜͡a͜͡c͜͡h͜͡e͜͡l͜͡ ☯︎︎ @RachelOTstudent
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk like everything it is a balance, some I just cannot attend due to cost or childcare issues, others I've taken my daughter with me (thanks @DerbyOTsociety).
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360

Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@Katie_Moffat @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team That's true, the transcripts are always there! And I have done a couple of reflections a few weeks later, before :) #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @NaidexShow I agree about the ease of online things (and so grateful for it at times like this!). The loveliness of meeting people face to face at event can be so energising and exhausting in equal measure! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Cass_OT__ I have participated in 5 and hosted 1 already. So, I know the inside and out about this pretty much... this is one of the times that OT is on time with a relatively new community trend... lol! #otalk
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
The new @theRCOT 5 min reflection tool is great for initial scribblings #otalk
Ellie Dixon @EllieDixon_OT
@DerbyOTsociety With placements and other commitments, it can be quite difficult to fit other CPD opportunities in. I suppose it's about finding the right opportunities for you. For me, discussions like #OTalk are great and easy to fit in!
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@anyadei @DerbyOTsociety Exactly! I believe that by doing CPD during studies, students are already getting used to the qualifications restrictions #OTalk
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
RT @OTalk_: @Cass_OT__ @EllieDixon_OT @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @shout_team Definitely! It's most certainly a CPD activity #Otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@margaretOT360 @theRCOT Ah yes I've seen that :) I like the @OTalk_ reflective tool too! #OTalk
Angie Hodgson (pronouns: she / her) 💙 @AngieHodgson2
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk I've been lucky to have both internal and external CPD opportunities. Within uni I've had access to experts by experience, expert practitioners and research participation. Outside of uni I've attended as many DOTS society events as possible and attended NAIDEX
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@Katie_Moffat @Laura_Does @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I have the same to do list!!! 😳 #OTalk Sometimes I find I'm not in the right mood to write a reflection either!
Hello my name is Deb @debbieduckie
@margaretOT360 @theRCOT I’m using that with the team I supervise. #otalk. I’m passionate about the fundamentals
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
Good idea #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety I definitely understand. I think I am showing you guys how it can be done! I am working full time (though in quarantine now because of COVID-19), actively involve in AOTA, and also actively involve in TED community on top of that. I know I make many people's heads spin! #otalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@Laura_Does @Katie_Moffat @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Me too! With placement as well I’ve been doing the minimum of 2 reflections a week! #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@Laura_Does @Katie_Moffat @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Do you find you reflect differently if more time has passed? The intensity of some experiences has gone so you can see the bigger picture more? I worry I might forget important bits as time passes though! #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@anyadei @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @NaidexShow Yes it’d be lovely to go but when you have a disability it isn’t that simple! #OTalk
Margaret Spencer MA @margaretOT360
To be fair to all the students on here the whole of your course is your #CPD as well as placement #OTalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@GeorgiaVineOT @Katie_Moffat @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team They can be great even as a way to jot down points you want to come back to later to help with assignments :) #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@anyadei @Katie_Moffat @Laura_Does @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I have a different to-do list. It is a CPD goals checklist, as well as a separate bucket list. Though the goals checklist items can also appear on the bucket list, too! #otalk
Student Platform OT @SPOTeurope
That is the beauty of social media we think - accessible 24/7 and also doesn't include cost or travel! #OTalk

Angie Hodgson (pronouns: she / her) 💙 @AngieHodgson2
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk it's definitely a balancing act. For me I felt that the opportunities were there but I didn't always have the time to attend due to studies / family responsibilities. I also struggled to find the time to reflect on and note down what I'd gained, an essential part of CPD
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @NaidexShow I quite agree! I was v ill in my early 20's and struggled with conferences (ended up doing my speaker slot at some via video if I wasn't well or spending a few days recovering afterwards!). I think big conferences are getting better at live streaming which I found helped! #OTalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@anyadei @Katie_Moffat @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I think I read somewhere that the best way to reflect is in 3 parts. First, right after. Second, after a short time. An third, after something has changed. Anyway it stuck with me. Though I tend to do a mini reflection after time has passed #OTalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
@BillWongOT @anyadei @Katie_Moffat @Laura_Does @GeorgiaVineOT @OTalk_ @shout_team A great way to prioritise! #OTalk
Ellie Dixon @EllieDixon_OT
@BillWongOT @DerbyOTsociety Definitely! I suppose that it's a good lesson in occupational balance! #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@anyadei @Laura_Does @Katie_Moffat @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Yeah definitely I like to do it no later than a week after the event. I would hate to start a fresh week of placement without reflecting on the previous. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Cass_OT__ I tried one this month and I got supportive feedback. It can be a fun multidisciplinary mingle opportunity... as if there is a big group, you can always use breakout rooms to make sure everyone has a chance to participate in intimate conversation. #otalk
D.O.T.S @DerbyOTsociety
@debbieduckie @margaretOT360 @theRCOT You sound like a great supervisor! #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety Well- I have crossed over to the dark side... haha! Many people in the TEDx curating community are constantly having occupational balance issues! #otalk
Cassandra @Cass_OT__
@BillWongOT #OTalk I know and that’s so nice! Which topic did you do this month?
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT

Ellie Dixon @EllieDixon_OT
@Laura_Does @anyadei @Katie_Moffat @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team That's a good idea - I often need a while to process the event and think before I can start a written reflection! But I agree about not leaving it too long otherwise it can all be a bit hazy! #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@Laura_Does @Katie_Moffat @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team Oh thats a really useful tip - thank you! Will be sure to test that out... #OTalk

Qu3: What barriers have you come across in terms of accessing CPD as a student (personally and structurally?) #OTalk
Katie Moffat @Katie_Moffat
@DerbyOTsociety I've found it quite manageable so far to access CPD opportunities. I tend to generate a list as time goes on, as throughout term time I prioritise my classes and assignments. Having time to fully dedicate to CPD can be difficult in term time. #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Cass_OT__ the theme for this month is "life at its fullest". So, I picked a TEDx talk that I think would fit the theme, prepared discussion questions, and then facilitated. That took me 1-2 hours to prepare, and then 1-2 hours for the actual event. #otalk
Ellie Dixon @EllieDixon_OT
@margaretOT360 That's true, sometimes I forget how much we are learning and taking in! #OTalk
Anya de Iongh @anyadei
@GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @NaidexShow Ooooh good luck! I'm sure you'll be great! What is the topic? #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT
@Laura_Does @anyadei @Katie_Moffat @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I like you style! I often think that my blogs are a form of CPD but I don’t know? #OTalk
Lauren Scarisbrick 💙 @LaurenemilyOT
@DerbyOTsociety #OTalk When I was in my first year of Uni I found it more difficult to access CPD events due to not knowing where to look or what to look for but through networking and Twitter I have been able to discover more events and be more engaged.

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@DerbyOTsociety @anyadei @Katie_Moffat @Laura_Does @GeorgiaVineOT @OTalk_ @shout_team Yes- for example, in 2017, I crossed off the "OT conference slam" from my bucket list. What I mean by that is- attending AOTA, RCOT, CAOT, and OT Australia conference at least once. Another example- in 2015, I spoke at a TEDx event. That got crossed off as well. #otalk
Katie Moffat @Katie_Moffat
@Laura_Does @anyadei @GeorgiaVineOT @DerbyOTsociety @OTalk_ @shout_team I really like this idea! I tend to wait a bit before reflecting so I allow myself time to consider what happened and how i have learned from it/dealt with it. But really like the idea of doing that in three parts! thank you! #OTalk
Georgia Vine @GeorgiaVineOT

Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@DerbyOTsociety Personally, I've had times when I couldn't manage more than just what I had to do for uni. I think everyone has those times though - and having awareness of your own capabilities and need for occupational balance is very useful! #OTalk

Well what an amazing talk well done @DerbyOTsociety! I’m so gutted I’m not meeting you all now but I’m sure we’ll meet when this is all over!#OTalk 💚

@debbieduckie @JadeElizabethOT @margaretOT360 @rcot I know my students generally had this reaction when they realized I am a faculty, "This guy does a lot of international work. I don't know how he does it even though he is practicing for less than 10 years!" #otalk
Jade Nixon @JadeElizabethOT
@debbieduckie @DerbyOTsociety That would be great, we will let you know! #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Rachel_SOT @Laura_Does @Cass_OT__ It's also one of the times where OT is on top of new trends. I found this out a few days ago when I received an email from TED to its present and former organizers... lol! #otalk

@debbieduckie @anyadei @margaretOT360 I'm not sure my fellow train commuters would appreciate me belting anything out but Johnny Cash songs are going on my playlist! 😄 #OTalk

@BillWongOT @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ Amazing! I love that OT is getting a spotlight for once! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Laura_Does @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ Actually, that's not the spotlight. When I told the TED community that I got positive for COVID-19, the support globally was amazing! I even got an email from TED/TEDx Community team saying that they are proud of me being a member of the TED community. #otalk

Thank you so much everybody who joined in tonight - we really appreciate everyone's support! I loved reading the conversations. Team work @LaurenemilyOT @JadeElizabethOT ❤️
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Laura_Does @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ and right now, I am signing up to be involved in the planning team for an online TEDxSalon event in Poland in 7 weeks. It will be an event made up of entirely musical performances and the organizing team consists of present and former TEDx organizers. #otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@BillWongOT @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ That's so lovely! You do have a great reach Bill 😊 I hope you're on the mend now! #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Laura_Does @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ I know many people in OT land will be like, "Bill! How can be involved in such a global project outside of OT, especially given that what you do in OT should keep you occupied already?" #otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@BillWongOT @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ I was definitely thinking this! 😂 #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Rachel_SOT @Laura_Does @Cass_OT__ I know my late mentor will faint had I told her this if she is still alive today. She will be like, "Bill... what you are doing is making my dreams look small! You are inspiring me to up my game!" #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Laura_Does @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ I think I am setting a very high bar for whoever is coming after me in OT to get involved in the TEDx curating world. The person who will take the baton from me got to be a juggernaut! #otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@BillWongOT @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ So true! 😊 #otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@JadeElizabethOT @margaretOT360 What a great idea! #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Laura_Does @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ I bet whoever wants to follow my footsteps in this will ask me, "What is life like on that side?" I will just say, "Well... be prepared for constant episodes of occupational imbalance. Doing this will feel like you are working in a high-stress part time job for free." #otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@BillWongOT @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ Make sure you look after yourself too Bill :) #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@Laura_Does @Rachel_SOT @Cass_OT__ That's why I am not taking the lead any more whenever I am involved in that front. I rather play the role of a good sidekick/role player. That said, a role player in that realm is STILL a lot of work. #otalk

@anyadei @DerbyOTsociety 'proper' CPD? 🤔 Any activity from which we learn & develop our practice/future practice may count. Skill to develop is to recognise every day learning which could be CPD, engage with our learning apply it in practice and measure the impact on ourselves & others #otalk #TRAMmCPD
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety It can be good to try 2 out on one subject - though I wouldn't recommend doing it the first time for uni work - maybe a simple reflection on something you did in the week. Then you have an idea of how you can apply those questions to your subject and if you like them :) #otalk
Laura Student OT @Laura_Does
@EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety Also it might be worth finding out what forms of CPD the hcpc accept. I'm sure there are plenty of OTs and other AHPs who struggle with written reflection, and who instead reflect in other ways. Not sure how (audio maybe 🤔)... But worth looking into :) #otalk

@EllieDixon_OT @DerbyOTsociety I also like drawing, so have incorporated some of my reflections into kind of infographic-type-things. It's a nice way to break up your cpd folder too, so it's not all writing #otalk

✨Annie OT Student✨ @AnnieSevern_OT
@DerbyOTsociety My advice would be to make sure you include CPD in your list of priorities, allocate time for it and maintain it as part of your routine! Also start as you mean to go on! I wish I started to prioritise my CPD at the beginning of my course. #OTalk

✨Annie OT Student✨ @AnnieSevern_OT
@DerbyOTsociety It took me a while to understand what is classed as CPD, how to access CPD opportunities and I used to just think “where do I even start?!” I think a barrier was not asking for help, advice and guidance from my lecturers, educators, peers etc... #OTalk
✨Annie OT Student✨ @AnnieSevern_OT
@DerbyOTsociety I think it is definitely accessible and there are opportunities out there, but it’s about time management. CPD doesn’t seem to have been emphasised early on in my course, so I didn’t understand the importance of it and only tried to balance uni work and placement instead #OTalk
