WEBINAR: Employable and Future-ready

High-impact practices in work-integrated learning

How can we leverage technology to enhance work-integrated learning experiences and provide more opportunities for students?


Webinar details

The demand for work-integrated learning (WIL) is on the rise, particularly in countries like Canada and Australia, where WIL initiatives have gained traction as an integral component of higher education.

While the benefits of WIL are recognized globally, challenges persist in implementing and managing effective WIL programs, with varying levels of support in the UK and US.

Watch this on demand panel discussion tackling two key challenges; preparing and supporting students to maximize their WIL experiences and expanding opportunities to meet the growing demand for work-like experiences.

Our panel of experts, representing diverse perspectives from Canada, the United States, and the UK, will delve into innovative approaches and practical insights. Specifically, they’ll explore the role of high-impact practices such as ePortfolios in supporting WIL initiatives.
