Hot Topic Theme: Work Integrated Learning and External Partnerships

Are you considering how to integrate WIL strategies into your program that develop both critical thinking and practical skills for the workplace? 

The Master of High Performance Sport at UTS is a new course that has been 20 years in the making. This course has a strong vision for providing a unique experience for both students and industry collaborators that focuses, not only on technical expertise, but also transferable professional practice capabilities. 

In this workshop you will learn from an example of WIL that will focus on: 

  • Whole of course curriculum design 
  • Development of industry ready practitioners 
  • The co-design (and co-delivery) relationship with industry 

At the end of this workshop you will come away with some practical ideas that you can adapt and apply to your curriculum.

What are Hot Topics?

Hot Topics are curriculum and teaching themes that have emerged in UTS from student learning experiences, student feedback surveys (SFS), consultations and other strategic projects. They are a series of professional development and engagement opportunities to enhance courses and provide longer-term support through community building and sustained critical dialogues.

This event is facilitated by the Institute for Interactive Media and Learning (IML) Teaching and Curriculum (TAC) Team.
