The pull of education is a powerful engine for societal change. Coupling effective educational models with emerging knowledge from research and practice is imperative if occupational therapy is to fulfill its ultimate promise for supporting health and engagement in life. Embarking from diverse pedagogic platforms and following signals that designate personal learning, the profession is destined to gather momentum and alight at critical junctures, while staying on track, to inspire future action that promotes individual and societal well-being. Do not fall asleep at the switch.
