Faculty Members as WIL Practitioners: VCC Case Study

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What does work-integrated learning (WIL) look like at an institution without a dedicated department? At Vancouver Community College (VCC), WIL programs (e.g. apprenticeships, internships, clinical placements and work experiences) are facilitated and taught by faculty and co-ordinators with discipline-specific expertise. Gain insights from the perspectives of these "informal" WIL practitioners and how VCC is leveraging their practice to enhance the overall WIL student experience.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Explore WIL pedagogy and assessment practices employed by faculty members
  • Identify support/resources to help them enhance their WIL practice
  • Develop institutional strategies to effectively highlight the importance of WIL
