Innovative and entrepreneurial models of WIL challenge the adequacy of traditional assessment approaches in generating the credible evidence of entrepreneurial capabilities that give students an employability edge for an ever-evolving and complex future.

The ATN Edge Project is addressing such challenges through the co-design, piloting and evaluation of a range of scalable and sustainable WIL assessment approaches (e.g. 360-assessments, use of online professional networks) in partnership with key stakeholders – national industry and recruiter groups, entrepreneurs, employers, alumni and students.

This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity for participants to:

  • Explore enterprise and entrepreneurial WIL approaches being implemented in courses across Australia
  • Unpack challenges in evidencing learning and assessment in enterprise and entrepreneurial WIL
  • Work with peers to design curriculum for interdisciplinary WIL experiences which develop enterprise capabilities

This workshop is relevant to course and discipline leaders, WIL practitioners, academic and curriculum developers.
