Work integrated learning (WIL) helps learners successfully bridge the school-to-work transition. Selkirk College has established WIL as a strategic priority, but how do we make this a reality in our programs?
This 1.5-hour workshop is aimed at educators who want to incorporate WIL into existing courses and programs. The focus will be on small-scale WIL approaches that compliment classroom or lab-based learning.
This is a follow-up event and part of Work Integrated Learning Fest.
- Wednesday, May 26 from 1 - 2:30 p.m. PDT (**note: this date was changed)
- Online (This webinar will be offered via Zoom - link provided upon registration)
- Register by contacting Lauren Rethoret at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will cover topics like:
- What is (and isn’t) WIL?
- What are some specific ways we can incorporate WIL without redesigning a program?
- How can we build relationships with community partners?
- How can we support students to succeed in their WIL experience?
- What resources are out there to hep us make WIL happen?
Participants should come with an outline for a course they’d like to incorporate WIL approaches into.
What is Work Integrated Learning?
Work-integrated learning is experiential education that formally and intentionally integrates a student’s academic studies within a workplace or practice setting to learn employability skills, personal agency and promote life-long learning.
