Equity and Access in WIL

As universities experience rapid growth in the uptake of WIL strategies, concern has been raised for issues around equity and access. Who participates in WIL? How does program or activity design impact on students’ ability to participate? In this session, discipline groups are encouraged to reflect on challenges and enablers of equity and access in WIL.

This session, presented in partnership with NCSEHE, includes a student speaker and insights from Associate Professor Amani Bell in the NCSEHE project “Exploring benefits and challenges of online Work Integrated Learning (WIL) for equity students”.

Date: Thursday 20 May 2021

Time: 12:00pm – 1:00pm AEST

ACEN Critical Conversations provides a platform for discussion around current issues facing WIL practitioners.
