Appreciative Inquiry is an approach to thinking that works from propositions of affirmative action and visions of the possible leading to individual learning and creativity (Cooperrider 2007). With collaboration between Cardiff and Glyndwr Universities, this innovative project was produced as part of a 4 year part-time BSc(Hons) Occupational Therapy by a group of 5/6 students and 1 staff facilitator. The module was a Level 6 Professional Studies module designed to develop management skills. It was a 20 credit module over 10 weeks with 3 hours contact per week plus self directed learning. Groups used Appreciative Inquiry integrated with Problem Based Learning (Roberts 2010) and sessions were complemented by 6 x 1 hour keynote lectures.
