A series of modules have been developed to enhance understanding of practice-based education and WPL. The following modules contain useful information for successful WPL implementation.

  • Module 2: Roles and Responsibilities. This module outlines the roles and responsibilities of all stakeholders in providing successful experiences for students.
  • Module 3: Education in WPL. This module provides an overview of the main learning theories that underpin WPL.
  • Module 5: Key goals of WPL. In this module the goals of WPL are described to provide a context for the issues that face stakeholders in WPL implementation.

Using mobile technology can be a good way of solving some of the dilemmas we face when implementing WPL. In this video Professor Franziska Trede outlines some practical ideas.
