[from Introduction] The national project Career Development Learning: Maximising the Contribution of Work-integrated Learning (WIL) to the Student Experience, focuses on the career development learning of Australian university students and graduates, and the provision of educational services and experiences that enhance and improve career development learning, including effective post-university transitions. Within these parameters, work-integrated learning is taken to be an educational vehicle for the provision of experiences that can contribute to career development learning.
In summary, the project aims include:
1)scoping the relationship between career development learning and work-integrated learning in higher education;
2)analysing how the two can be integrated and synergized; and
3)producing learning resources to support career development practitioners, academics, and employers in the delivery of career development learning and work-integrated learning.
