- Embedding industry engaged learning across the university
- Clements, Mike; Hays, Jay; Appleby, Mary
- This paper is the second in a suite of ongoing reports documenting one Australian university's longitudinal redevelopment of its Higher Education curriculum as it embeds Industry Engaged Learning, or IEL (an umbrella term for cooperative education, work-integrated learning, and related programs), across all undergraduate degree offerings. For the subject university, IEL is a philosophy, framework, and organising set of principles for learning in the workplace and community. This paper re-examines the attributes of IEL programs and lays the foundations for an encompassing applicable learning theory. It reveals tools developed to identify, evaluate, and create IEL units and activities and reflects on lessons learned over the past year. Both papers may be classed as case studies. Combined, they contribute significantly to a practical understanding of how universities may undertake a major transformation agenda and how that agenda may have to adapt to meet changing circumstances. Specifically, these two papers address how cooperative and work-integrated learning programs may be extended, enhanced, leveraged, and integratedwithin the overall curriculum.
