Summary

The demand for work-ready graduates, who are familiar with organizational practices in the workplace is increasing, and so the need for greater work integrated learning (WIL) is a growing concern for the education sector. With the globalization of higher education and the cultural and linguistic challenges this brings, WIL has become a core strategic issue for many organizations. Examining WIL as a process of integration between workplaces, higher education institutions, government, business and industry, this book includes:

  • Strategies for managing work integrated learning experiences
  • The what, when, where, why and who of WIL across professions
  • Advice on building relationships between higher education and the workplace
  • Guidance on preparing learners effectively for work
  • Practical case studies from firsthand experience
  • Direct information and instruction on the use of WIL

Work Integrated Learning is a practical guide that can be used by the education sector and employers alike. An integrated resource, applicable to all involved in work integrated learning, it will also appeal to pro-Vice Chancellors of teaching and learning, WIL coordinators, careers services, and all those involved with standards and competency.
