This WACE WIL Seminar focuses on Dual Training, Co-operative Education and Work Integrated Education programs. Attending this first experience based seminar will provide you with the tools to better analyse and understand the WIL practices in your institution and workplace. The word seminar means, ”plant a seed” and the best way of doing this is to start from the participant’s experiences and then to reflect on them from various theoretical perspectives. This of course means that there are some work needs to be done before attending the seminar.
By the end of the seminar, the aim is that you will be able to describe and understand the WIL experience in a theoretical framework by utilizing articles, case descriptions and group discussions.
There will be some readings, three articles that provides us with the necessary tools to analyze our WIL practice. Furthermore, you will be asked to provide the seminar leader with some case descriptions that will provide us with material to the work-shops. You will also be asked to make a short presentation of WIL in a local and national context. Three articles and instructions regarding case descriptions will be distributed to you after your registration.
An estimation of time needed to read, prepare cases, and participate at the seminar, will be approximately 20-25 hours.
