Presented by Griffith University Service Learning

Join us for an interactive symposium to facilitate discussions and identify opportunities for research and scholarship in work-integrated learning (WIL).

In person or by livestream!

Work-integrated learning (WIL) is a powerful pedagogy that transcends the traditional boundaries of academic work and deeply embeds the university into the community. Despite this, it is still not clear how best to put WIL to work in a research environment. Ideally, university teaching and learning should be informed by scholarship and research, but these represent significantly under-utilised and under-explored areas in WIL.

This symposium will explore the relationship between work-integrated education (WIE) and work-integrated learning (WIL), and research and scholarship from a range of perspectives.

Tuesday 28 May • 1.30 pm – 3.30 pm AEST
