WIL Research Conversations is a friendly, informal gathering of like-minded practitioners and scholars interested in furthering our knowledge of WIL scholarship, research and practice. We get together online once a month around a paper or topic, to hear from the author(s) of the paper and engage with each other through small online group discussions.
