13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Very helpful. Alway there if you needed something.
Karen is always cheerful and approachable. She has a true passion about being a OTA. She is always delighted to share her experiences.
She is very creative and has knowledge on craft application to Occupational Therapy. She is very personable.
good listener, good problem solver, good at encouraging, thinks outside the box
Karen has had a lot of experience working in the OT field, she has good insight and advice for her students.
Professor was great.She is passionate&knows her stuff. She made me feel like I could do all the projects that was given.
Karen is fun.
Mrs.Oshiro is a very intelligent person that knows her craft. Very experienced and i respect her work.
She knows her stuff very well. She encourages us to not be afraid to do something that we may like to do. We can not just work in a rehab but can do like a home assessment as well if we desire to.
Her natural ability to teach without the assistance of a book or notes, completely by memory. She also has one of the most positive outlooks/attitudes that I've ever experienced with a professor in college.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Please don't retire!
I don't suggest any changes for Karen For her class if anything she could change some of craft activities to make the activity seem more realistic.
I would like craft activity to be more up-to-date to current clinical setting.
Karen could explain better how she would like the projects to be done and explain how to do them more clearly. For the final presentation, I felt lost for most of the process.
Maybe do different projects gor leather. A belt or bag. For sewing,maybe a bag to use.
I wouldn't change anything, very good teacher
No, she is a very sweet lady. Thank you for sharing your experience and for the tips about how to become a good health care professionals.
None, I wish she would come back next year :(
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She was always concerned for the students in our class.
If there was anything that a student was concerned or worried about she always encourage students to come and talk to her about it.
She mentioned how we can improve our therapeutic/interpersonal skill during craft activity.
Karen is really nice and allows students more time to finish their work if they haven't had a chance to do so due to work or family issues. She's very understanding.
Professor kept asking if we needed help. She was always there to answer our questions.
She answered all questions. Helped me with my first sewing experience.
She stayed on task with everybody.
She constantly check who needs help with the project that is due within the week. She asks her students who may need assistance finishing the project.
She always answered questions when we had them and she was never late to class
