Work Integrated Learning

WIL in Science: Leadership for WIL Final project report 2015 – 2016

The WIL in Science: Leadership for WIL project was funded by the Office of the Chief Scientist. This project has established a national network of science WIL leaders, created a national conversation among science faculties and schools about WIL in science degrees, begun the task of building capacity to design and deliver WIL programs, and trialled approaches to WIL program development.

Successful WIL in Science 2016 – 2018

The Successful WIL in Science project, funded by the Office for Learning and Teaching, seeks to improve employability for graduates in science and mathematics by increasing access to and participation in work-integrated learning (WIL). It builds on the ACDS WIL in Science project, funded by the Office of the Chief Scientist, which developed leadership networks for WIL in science.

Successful WIL in Science will provide tailored tools for science faculties coupled with institutional peer mentoring, and undertake research into the WIL experience and perceptions of science students.
