WHAT IS THE FORUM ABOUT?
Realising opportunities through WIL evaluation
This session will focus on evaluation in work-integrated learning (WIL). Evaluation can be used for a broad range of purposes in WIL such as informing improvements to practice, policy and research, and measuring impact (on students, partners and the wider community). The workshop will include presentations on different approaches to evaluation in WIL, as well as opportunities to collaborate and network.
You don’t need to be an ACEN member or an experienced evaluator/researcher to participate. All are welcome – including those new to evaluation and research, academic and professional staff.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
You might find some collaborators from other institutions to partner with you on your research; source useful feedback on your ideas from other WIL professionals and academics, or identify others with similar projects or research interests. Possible topics to be explored include Evaluation and Impact; WIL for International Students; Industry Engagement/Sustainability; Assessment or Service Learning. Other ideas and themes are welcome
By the end of the day you will have developed in confidence, shared ideas and increased your WIL networks!
