VILÄR bases on research and development in work-integrated learning. That way, the conference constitutes a platform for spreading good ideas, border-crossing collaboration and the exchange of knowledge.
Work-integrated learning is a generic term for different educational models that bases on collaboration and integration between higher education and working life. In this field of knowledge, we find the challenges that are all a part of work-based education. Cooperative education (Co-op), mentorship programs, clinical rotations, work placements, field studies and other forms of collaboration between higher education and work life.
The conference is an annual re-occurring venue for scientists, curricula design developers and decision-makers. It targets everyone that is interested in learning and especially work integrated learning.
The program includes presentations, in both Swedish and English, by planned, ongoing or completed FOU projects in the specific field of knowledge. We especially welcome contributions that in a concrete way, within the framework of education, show how to practice and develop the students’ approach, values, readiness to act and ability of judgement – with the support of simulations, game theory, IKT, VR, AR or learning in authentic environments.
In additions to this, there is opportunity to expand the social network and speak with both national and international scientists within the fields of your expertise.
