The Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Symposium will be held on Friday 30 September from 9:45 am – 4 pm.

At this year’s WIL Symposium, we are spotlighting the ‘I’ in WIL. Integration is key in WIL, not only integrating theory and practice, but also technical and communication skills, and exploring beyond yourself towards others, groups, and communities within and outside UTS. How do we integrate learning, practices, experiences, attributes and assessments, ensuring a successful outcome for all stakeholders?  

Last year’s inaugural event introduced and workshopped the UTS WIL Quality Framework. This year, we will be expanding the conversation to our partners in industry, community and the professions and we include students, using an interdisciplinary, cross-faculty lens. 

Join us for a packed event across two separate sessions:
