Good practice WIL case studies


The Good Practice WIL Case Studies are for ACEN members and the wider WIL community to share successful learning and teaching and support innovative practices. The Case Studies will be diverse, discipline-centric at the unit/subject or course level. The WIL Case Studies can be viewed by topic, discipline and the model used. The WIL Case Studies reflect effective student support; curriculum design; teaching and learning as well as community and industry engagement.


Publishing case studies facilitates the following in the WIL community:

  • sharing expertise and resources;
  • inspire innovation;
  • strengthen all WIL curricula;
  • strengthen WIL evaluation;
  • bench marking good WIL practice;
  • effective WIL leadership;
  • engagement with industry and community;
  • embedding WIL in the curriculum for credit.


The criteria for selection of a case study for publication will be based on the following criteria:

  • evidence of the benefit of WIL to the student, community/industry and university;
  • evidence of best practice and/or innovation in assessment;
  • evidence of successful evaluation process;
  • evidence of wider impact.

Staff Development

Academic staff should also evaluate industry engagement against the Australian University Teaching Criteria and Standards Framework Criteria 5.
