Call for Expressions of Interest

IJWIL invites Expressions of Interests for a Special Issue on Local Indigenous Perspectives and Partnerships: Enhancing WIL. IJWIL is seeking papers from around the globe and from any discipline/field in Higher Education engaging with Indigenous perspectives and partnerships in WIL.

Papers will discuss, for example: Indigenous students’ experiences of WIL; Indigenous concepts that underpin WIL; Indigenous community and university partnerships in WIL; Indigenous work placements or engagement with external stakeholders including Indigenous companies, corporations, advisory committees, councils and/or boards. This may include immersion opportunities for Indigenous students either at home or abroad, industry/university partnerships, working with Indigenous communities and students, or mentoring by Indigenous Elders and/or Indigenous workplace mentors.

The types of papers accepted will include:

  • scholarly discussion/positioning papers,
  • reports on original research, and
  • detailed case studies of good practice with an emphasis on Indigenous student learning and outcomes.

Papers will discuss, where appropriate, insights around enabling WIL and engaging Indigenous students; strengths and obstacles for students and educators; stakeholder experiences; or success stories in Indigenous WIL partnerships. The Special Issue aims to focus on sharing strategies, strengths and empowerment of Indigenous students, community and industry through partnerships with tertiary education providers (universities, colleges, TAFEs, RTOs, etc).
