dc.description.abstractAs university students use their computers (laptops and desktops) or other devices, such as tablets and smartphones, to engage in school-related activities, they are at risk of developing musculoskeletal discomfort and disorders (MSDs) which can disrupt participation in their occupation of education. The OTD student will develop ergonomics-based educational resources for TWU students to address the risks and consequences of MSDs. These resources will come in three different formats making them easily accessible to the students; there will be handouts, brochures, and a video. The purpose of these educational resources is to increase students’ knowledge and awareness of ergonomics to promote health and well-being, leading to continued occupational engagement in their roles as university students.
