This National Showcase will provide academics, professionals, industry and business with insights into the broad range of work integrated learning activities applied in higher education contexts to develop students’ knowledge and understanding of their professional practice, as well as building their professional skills ready for the 21st century workplace.
The showcase is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations. It will be held in the Ann Harding Conference Centre at the University.
