Academic Board Forum: Work-Integrated Learning (WIL)

We have the WIL, but what is the way?

On 21 October 2015, the Academic Board held a forum focused on work-integrated learning. Key questions were addressed from university and industry perspectives.

University perspective

  • Why would UTS consider work-integrated learning?
  • What would we aim for students to achieve from this experience?
  • Will this experience increase student employability?

Industry perspective

  • What is industry looking for when accepting students for a placement/internship?
  • What skills would they wish students to have prior to their placement/internship?
  • What value do they place on graduates having work-integrated learning during their course of study?

Speakers and their presentations

Note: Access to presentations is restricted to UTS staff only.

Q&A with speakers

After morning tea, a Q&A with the speakers was moderated by Jenna Price, senior lecturer and journalism undergraduate coordinator, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, UTS.
