WIL Student Journey

Supporting WIL
This professional development opportunity uses the WIL student's journey - from the academic classroom, through the WIL preparatory curriculum, to the WIL experience, and upon return to academia -  as a theme from which you may select examples for reflection and testing of new ideas. Have a look at the slideshow below for an overview of the different stages of the WIL student journey so that when you reflect, you can include examples from as many of the stages as possible, or focus on practices you use in a particular stage  (e.g., attracting students to your program, preparing students for the WIL experience, supporting students during their work experiences, etc.).
