Welcome to WPL in Motion.
In this section we bring you Scenarios from WPL in form of short films. Based on the literature, our own research findings, practice experiences and critical moments in workshops we have put together 8 scenes from the world of WPL. These scenes are intentionally neither best nor worst practice examples. Instead these scenes tell it as it is. They are authentic practice situations that embrace the crucial role of workplace cultures. The aim is to enrich and improve WPL practices. This could mean for students becoming more agentic in their learning, for practitioners providing more constructive feedback and involving their colleagues at work in more vibrant student supervision or for academics strengthening professional relations with industry.
Of course, these films are entertaining to watch but beyond entertainment these films should be seen as a trigger for critique and reflection about how to move forward. If you are looking for short answers and simple tips then these films are not for you. When you watch these films think about what parts show good practices, what parts demonstrate poor practices and how the entire scene could have evolved otherwise.
WARNING: Images and content of these films may be of concern to some people.
