The ACEN Research Conversations

Facilitated through the ACEN NSW/ACT Chapter and ACEN Professional Development and Resources committee, this is a friendly, informal gathering of like-minded practitioners and scholars interested in furthering our knowledge of WIL scholarship, research and practice. The group meets face-to-face through Zoom to discuss thoughts, insights and practical applications related to a nominated WIL journal article or topic.

In 2020 we have locked in FOUR dates for us to share practice and discuss WIL research – see dates below.

This year we are sticking to our format with an article to read, an invited author/expert, and time for discussions in small groups. In addition to our usual one-hour program, we are also inviting you to stick around (if you’re interested) for an additional half hour to continue conversations with the author/ expert directly. We welcome participation from our Global WIL partner networks such as NZACE and CEWIL.

This ACEN Research Conversation session is for anyone new to researching WIL, anywhere in the world. It’s an opportunity to network with others in the field, share your experiences and support each other. Unlike a webinar, there is no presentation in this session – it’s just an opportunity to chat in small groups facilitated by established researchers in the area. There is no cost to attend the session.
