Indigenous Work Integrated Learning


Work-integrated learning (WIL) is a flourishing, global, educational phenomenon that is changing the field of higher education. Through WIL, relevant, meaningful connections to work are made throughout the curriculum that lead to enhanced graduate employability. While scholarship grows across diverse areas of WIL, one important domain that remains relatively under researched is that of Indigenous work-integrated learning (WIL).  Special Issue 2 of the International Journal of Work integrated Learning (IJWIL) aims to cultivate knowledge and practice of Indigenous WIL. It proposes a definition and design principles for those embarking on Indigenous WIL opportunities. The journal presents twelve studies that offer insight and perspectives of Indigenous community, language and culture in a variety of contexts across

Australia, New Zealand and Canada. While not every Indigenous nation, nor peoples have been represented in this Special Issue, this collection of dynamic and diverse locations and perspectives aims to ignite a global conversation. The authors have come together to share their voice, their language, knowledge and insights of Indigenous WIL in this special video compilation. We invite you to grab a cup of tea, pull up a chair and enjoy learning perspective of Indigenous WIL from around the globe.
