This book presents a wide ranging, international overview of innovations in fieldwork education in three allied health disciplines. It provides theoretical foundations and evaluations of implementation and outcomes of a range of approaches used in fieldwork education. The various chapters identify new models, locations and modes of delivery, and teaching and learning strategies for fieldwork education. They also point to emerging possibilities for fieldwork education for the future. This book identifies that there is a developing evidence-base for innovation in fieldwork education and there is a need for the practice of educational evaluation and enhancement to become habitual and ongoing.
