Event description

Description

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) has been the hot topic for the last little while and our curriculum renewal seeks to increase graduate employability skills through WIL.

Work Integrated Learning comes in all shapes, forms and sizes and this is an opportunity to hear about other people’s experiences and consider the ways we as an institution can provide experiential learning and work experiences for students.

Professor Amanda Henderson, National Senior Teaching Fellow with the Office for Learning and Teaching, Canberra will chair two Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Workshops at the University of Tasmania. Professor Amanda Henderson has an extensive career in education, research and leadership across a number of health disciplines in both academic and clinical settings. She is presently Nursing Director, in the Practice Development Unit, at Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane. This role leads the development of nursing and midwifery staff capability across the Metro South Health Service, Queensland. She holds title of Professor at Griffith University, Queensland, and is also currently a National Senior Teaching Fellow with the Office for Learning and Teaching, Canberra. In the five year period prior to this she was a Queensland Health Research Fellow investigating learning in practice settings. She has over 100 publications in international refereed journals in the area of work integrated learning and practice.

Please join for a discussion based forum with representatives from across the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology, University (staff and students) and Industry Partners. The format will be 10am -2pm with a break for a catered lunch.

We will cater for limited vegetarian and gluten free options. Kindly email emma.davidson@utas.edu.au if you have special dietary requirements.

Seating is limited so please RSVP by November 29th.
