Students as partners in WIL: Is this really possible? ACEN SA/NT

Students as partners in WIL: Is this really possible? ACEN SA/NT

9:30am – 12:30pm Friday, May 18th at Flinders University Victoria Square

Contemporary Australian higher education providers have championed student partnership and meaningful engagement as key priorities in strategic planning, governance, and teaching and learning.

This workshop, including input from an expert panel, explores the notion of students as partners in work-integrated learning (WIL) environments. We trouble the authentic nature of students as partners in this space, and the notion that student partnerships promotes engaged learning and agency.

Bringing together staff and students, we take Kettl’s (2017) idea of ‘doing better by knowing better’ to explore the possibilities and challenges that go beyond the usual lip-service paid to engagement and partnership in higher education curricula.
