Effective education is situated in the local culture and context; however, it is not known how OT educators create a curriculum that is responsive to the local culture and context. This ethnographic case study demonstrated that educators responded to local cultural and contextual factors and student-learning needs specific to the Caribbean by using localizing strategies. Localizing strategies were processes and approaches that made the curriculum relevant to the local community.
