The WIL Strategy Team are hosting co-design WIL sessions

05 April 2024

The WIL Strategy Team are hosting a series of co-design work-integrated learning (WIL) sessions with the community and industry in our regional locations. The first in the series will be held in Wagga Wagga on Wednesday, 10 April 2024. The sessions will:

  • Provide a platform for local community organisations, industry partners, students, academics, and other interested staff to gain a comprehensive understanding of WIL.
  • Explore key aspects of WIL, including essential skills, effective collaboration, and alignment with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • Have guest community and industry speakers who will share their expectations, and students will provide valuable insights into what constitutes successful WIL experiences.

Together, we’ll uncover best practices, foster meaningful connections, and empower students on their WIL journey.

This book is the first of its kind and a must for advanced Wiradyuri language learners and teachers.
