Recent years has proven strong intentions towards an occupation-based curriculum. Educating “specialists in doing” (2 p.95) sets the intention of making occupation the core assumption of occupational therapy, both in practice and in the curriculum. A gap has occurred between the means of teaching occupation as a theoretical concept, and learning and mastering occupation as a competence. We learn from doing, sharing the doing and developing skills through doing (1). How do we design the curriculum so that the students can embody the power and meaning of occupation?

By rethinking curriculum we designed “Exploratorium of occupation”. A learning space to explore and do occupation. Students reflect and work on challenges, feelings, motivation, adaptation and adjustments to seek the potential of their chosen occupation. Experience is shared and participants will participate in exploring learning about occupation.
