Wellbeing in WIL

The transition between university and work contexts can be a time of great excitement but it can also conjure many challenges for students’ wellbeing. What do students, coordinators or university systems do to manage and support student wellbeing in WIL?  Given the considerable impacts on WIL over the last year or so, it’s also time we explore not only wellbeing for our students, but also for our staff and ask the same kinds of questions. In this ACEN Critical Conversations, we invite you to come and share your experiences and strategies around supporting students, or in being supported as a coordinator/educator, through WIL experiences.

Our guest speaker is Dr Deanna Grant-Smith, Queensland University of Technology, who will share insights and personal experiences from researching and exploring wellbeing in WIL. 

Date: Thursday 19th August 2021

Time: 11:30am AEST

ACEN Critical Conversations provides a platform for discussion around current issues facing WIL practitioners. Driven by the ACEN Professional Development and Resources committee, this virtual session involves facilitated online conversations in discipline groups. We invite you to speak up, share your thoughts on what matters to you most and offer strategies to encourage one another in our WIL community.
