BHER points the way forward for WIL in cross-Canada report

October 26, 2016

The Business/Higher Education Roundtable has released a comprehensive report that outlines best practices and next steps for enhancing work-integrated learning opportunities across Canada. Prepared by Academica Group, the report begins by working toward a common definition of WIL and identifies the key components of WIL programming, barriers to implementation, and best practices. Some of these best practices include designing a WIL experience with outcomes in mind, understanding faculty needs, facilitating reflection, and integrating theory with practice. The report's core recommendations offer specific advice on how to improve data collection on WIL participation, create an outcomes-based evaluation mechanism, and foster co-operation among stakeholders.
