Professor Stephen Billet (School of Education and Professional Studies) and Professor Ruth Bridgstock (Learning Futures)


On Tuesday 28 May, Learning Futures live streamed the event Research and Scholarship in Work-Integrated Learning. This event was presented by Service Learning.

Over 120 staff tuned in (online and in person at Nathan campus) to watch the panel session, led by Professor Stephen Billet (School of Education and Professional Studies). The panel also featured Professor Ruth Bridgstock (Learning Futures), Professor Karsten Zegwaard (University of Waikato, editor of the International Journal of Work-integrated Learning) and Professor Jacqui Ewart (School of Humanities, Languages and Social Science).

If you weren’t able to catch the live stream as it happened, a recording of the session is now available to view — and is definitely worth watching if you have a keen interest in work-integrated learning (WIL). The panel explored the relationships between research, scholarship and WIL and questions around how we might know if WIL is making a difference to learners, and also delved into conceptual explorations of work-integrated education (WIE) and WIL. Rich insights and examples of WIL in practice were also shared by the panel.
