Interdisciplinary Project-Based Work-Integrated Learning:
Student-centred learning to enhance employability
The landscape of work is constantly evolving leading to unprecedented job mobility. This change is driving a shift in focus within higher education from discipline specific knowledge and skills to employability skills for the 21st century workplace.
The three core elements of this project – interdisciplinary learning, project-based learning and work integrated learning – are all key priorities across the higher education sector as they provide students with opportunities to develop employability capabilities in the domains of cognition, intrapersonal and interpersonal.
Research findings from pilots conducted across health, business, humanities and STEM at UniSA, Curtin, RMIT and UTS will be discussed. This project was funded by the Australian Technology Network of Universities.
