Vic/Tas ACEN Workshop Invitation:

Evidencing entrepreneurial capabilities through innovative WIL

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 in partnership with key stakeholders – national industry and recruiter groups, entrepreneurs, employers, alumni and students.

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

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
