ACEN Project Guidelines

 

Guidelines for ACEN endorsement of projects

ACEN will consider endorsing projects that meet the following criteria:

  • Are consistent with the Vision, Mission and objectives of ACEN
  • Respond to an identified need in relation to WIL
  • Outcomes, rationale and impact are clearly articulated
  • Apply an ethical approach in relation to the scholarship of WIL
  • Include strategies for the dissemination and embedding of the project outcomes
  • Utilise and advance existing national and international knowledge and practices regarding Work Integrated Learning.

Guidelines for ACEN-hosted or originated projects

ACEN will consider hosting projects that meet the following criteria:

  • Consistent with the Vision, Mission and objectives of ACEN
  • Respond to an identified need in relation to WIL Outcomes, rationale and impact are clearly articulated
  • Apply an ethical approach in relation to the scholarship of WIL
  • Include strategies for the dissemination and embedding of the project outcomes
  • Utilise and advance existing national and international knowledge and practices regarding Work Integrated Learning
  • Include collaboration and inclusiveness in the project design and project teams and consider stakeholder perspectives as appropriate
  • Include the capacity to mentor early career researchers where appropriate
  • Project team members have the capacity to undertake the project
  • ACEN institutional members are involved as appropriate
  • Clearly defined reporting mechanisms to the ACEN national executive and membership.

Notes:

The use of ‘collaborative’ in ACEN’s name was intentional both in terms of a word that could define the broad nature of the relationships involved in WIL, and also with the intention of the network being highly collaborative and responsive to the need for a national voice. In relation to ACEN supported/ hosted or originated projects, ACEN supports the principle of maximising collaboration and inclusiveness in all projects.

ACEN reserves the right to reassess the endorsement of a project at any time.
