Abstract

Two students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in occupational science will present the results of a collaborative undergraduate research project. Using a naturalistic inquiry design, occupational science students explored the perceptions of international students on campus. The research questions were: 1) What differences do international students studying at a university in the United States perceive in the spatial, temporal and sociocultural contexts of their home countries and the United States and 2) How have any perceived contextual differences influenced their occupations while studying abroad.

The students’ faculty mentor will discuss the purposes of the project and how it was integrated into a course.

Participants will have an opportunity to discuss the study results and the nature and value of undergraduate research in occupational science.
