Developing a Collaborative Model of Industry Feedback for Work Placement of Business Students
Richardson, Joan; Jackling, Beverley; Henschke, Kathy; Tempone, Irene
Asia-Pacific Journal of Cooperative Education, v14 n1 p27-43 2013
Work-integrated learning (WIL) is a signature feature of study in many higher education institutions. In business degrees, industry feedback is recognized as an integral part of the assessment of WIL, yet the role played by industry in appraising student performance in the workplace has not been clearly defined. Based on interviews with industry supervisors and academic mentors, this paper addresses the integration of academic and industry supervisor assessment practices designed to maximize student learning outcomes and capture the depth of the learning experiences during a work placement. A model of industry feedback was developed to incorporate planned assessment practices that achieve the learning outcomes agreed to at the start of the placement by all stakeholders: the student, the academic mentor and the industry supervisor.
