Managing Work-Integrated Learning

Course description

Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) is the term normally used to describe directed or supported educational activities that integrate theoretical learning and practical application in the workplace.  These activities represent a significant part of many academic programs at Flinders University and may take the form of placements, practicum and field studies, in addition to on-campus, work-related activities and industry liaison.

It is essential that the University adequately prepares students for WIL activities, to maximise the learning potential that they offer.  All academic and general staff with an involvement in WIL activities are therefore required to complete a workshop program specifically designed to provide a clearer understanding of the elements of successful WIL at Flinders University.  This is compulsory for all new staff involved in leading and organising WIL and may also provide new and relevant information for staff managing existing programs.

'Managing Work-Integrated Learning' is delivered as on-line FLO topic and a full-day workshop. The FLO topic must be completed prior to commencing the workshop.
