Work Integrated Learning (WIL) has become a core element of post-secondary instruction and a crucial means by which applied and experiential learning is infused into curriculum in highly meaningful and professionally relevant ways. This comprehensive set of open access, learner-centered modules supports WIL preparedness among post-secondary students and has been included in this OER to compliment existing units and chapters.
These modules are grounded in The Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario’s (HEQCO) A Practical Guide for Work Integrated Learning and represent over 35 hours of rich content that can be used by students, faculty, career-services staff, and employers to support student learning in applied and work-integrated settings.
