Work-Integrated Learning: Linking Research and Teaching for a Win-Win Situation
Xia, Jianhong; Caulfield, Craig; Ferns, Sonia
Studies in Higher Education, v40 n9 p1560-1572 2015
This paper establishes a framework for linking research and teaching (LRT) by developing industry-oriented student projects based on work-integrated learning theory (WIL). The major components of the WIL experiences and their relationships are identified. The scope of student projects may vary from a minor assignment project to a medium submission, such as a final year or honours project, to a more complex research undertaking, such as a Master or PhD project. A range of practical examples for linking research and teaching and work-integrated learning (LRT-WIL) are described. This study demonstrates that by synthesising work-integrated learning, research and teaching, a win-win situation is created for students, academics and industry partners.
