Come along to the first discussion in a two-part series on work-integrated learning (WIL) at Macquarie University. Our first discussion will involve panellists from across the university sharing their approach to the design and delivery of WIL in their unit or course.

You will have the opportunity to meet colleagues, share ideas and ask questions of our panellists who include:

  • Associate Professor Cara Hildreth – Associate Dean Curriculum and Learning, Faculty of Medicine, Health and Human Sciences
  • Associate Professor Kate Lloyd – long-standing PACE Unit Convenor, Faculty of Arts
  • Dr Jennifer Ruskin – Academic Director for WIL and Employability, Macquarie Business School
  • Dr Nicholas Tse – Senior Lecturer School of Engineering, Faculty of Science and Engineering

Date: Wednesday 3rd May 2023
Time: 10am – 11.30 am
Venue: Continuum Room, Level 3, 75 Talavera Road
via Zoom (Zoom link will be sent to you once you register)

To attend (Zoom or in-person) please register using the buttons below. Pop your questions into the comment box or bring them on the day.

Depending on topics of interest and preferred frequency and format for connecting, we plan to use this event as a starting point for a WIL community of practice (CoP) to provide on-going and collaborative support for those teaching in this space.

The second part in this series (date TBC) will be ‘How will you do WIL?’ with a focus on Macquarie’s new WIL policy. Macquarie has defined full WIL units and embedded WIL units. Both types of WIL integrate an activity (e.g., an internship, a project, fieldwork or a simulation) that enables students to apply theory in practice, involves 2-way interaction with partners and is aligned with authentic assessment. Full and embedded WIL are distinguished by the level of interaction with partners (at least one hour for embedded WIL and at least 35 hours for full WIL).
