Work-Integrated Learning is “an educational approach that uses relevant work-based experiences to allow students to integrate theory with the meaningful practice of work as an intentional component of the curriculum.” (www.wilnz.nz)
WIL is a high impact, experiential teaching practice where students can bridge their disciplinary specific knowledge into the world of work. WIL provides students with a special opportunity to foster and develop professional identity, personal and professional capabilities and deepens their understanding of how knowledge from the classroom becomes invaluable in the “real world.”
