Hot Topic Theme: Work Integrated Learning and External Partnerships

UTS has a number of tools starting to emerge that can support course teams to help students think about their long term career goals and graduate employability:

  • The UTS Careers service has developed a set of Canvas Modules that can be embedded in a course to support students at various stages of their journey through UTS.
  • The TRACK suite of tools use labour market data to help students think about what their skills are, how they map to their career goals, and what subject choices might help them get closer to those goals.

But when considering WIL it is important to take a whole of course approach, and the two teams are working together to ensure that activities are well structured throughout a course and we don’t make our students do the same activity multiple times!

Come along to this hot topic, and find out what tools and support are available to you as you think about WIL based activities that can support your students throughout their course.
