Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) is a strategic priority for Flinders University and aimed at improving the employability of our students by giving them valuable practical experience which is directly related to the courses being studied.
WIL is an intentional, organised, supervised and assessed educational activity that integrates theoretical learning with its applications in the workplace. It may take one or more of the following forms:
- Directed experience in an industry or professional workplace
- Simulated workplace settings on campus
- Generic work experience topics available as electives
- Assessment activities designed to simulate authentic workplace activities
Flinders University places an emphasis on integration as a key element of WIL, and recognises the importance of student-centred learning as a focus for its delivery. The University has a clear commitment to WIL and aims to provide all undergraduates with access to a WIL opportunity during the course of their studies and to support a successful transition to employment. These opportunities help ensure that students develop a truly integrated approach to learning through a combination of academic and work-related activities.
These pages have been designed to provide information and resources to support WIL delivery for university staff our students, and our host organisations. Please click on the relevant link for more information and relevant contact details.
