The aim of this large-scale scoping study of work integrated learning in higher education was to identify issues and map a broad and growing picture of WIL across Australia and to identify ways of improving the student learning experience in relation to WIL. Evidence highlighted the importance of strong partnerships between stakeholders (students, university academic and professional staff, employers, professional associations, and government) in facilitating effective learning outcomes for students. A set of recommendations (Chapter 1) and an implementation framework (Chapter 9) are project outcomes.  Thirty curriculum vignettes, providing a snapshot of a broad range of practices, are available from the website.
