Governments around the world are committed to enhancing students’ “graduateness”. Work-integrated learning (WIL) is one of the many programmes which Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) can develop to promote this facet of student life. The incorporation of work-integrated learning in curriculum design and development can produce reciprocal benefits for students, workplaces, professions and communities. Any curriculum design and development endeavour relating to WIL requires appropriate resources to support curriculum development. This book serves to explore WIL programmes and experiences for the student, WIL coordinator and supervisor. It further integrates practical, relevant and reflective industry experience within the higher education curriculum to enhance student development. WIL has no uniformly or specific framework or approaches since it is an emerging field and is generally influenced by contextual factors. In view of the diversity in theory and practice and different purposes, whether pragmatic or practical, driving the adoption of one approach over another, this book highlight sthe diverse approaches that encapsulate WIL in South Africa.

The challenge of globalization and technology and the flow of students seeking higher education in another country and then employment in a globally connected environment is a difficult one for educators. Work Integrated Learning (WIL) has become quite standard in undergraduate degrees and some strategies for implementing WIL in the curriculum are exampled throughout this book. Authors of Transformative Pedagogies in the Visual Domain employ case studies and engaging curriculum content to reflect on a world with porous borders and student aspirations for a world of professional work where collaborators, employers, companies and clients are spread nationally and internationally. Technology enables a greater possibility of global work placements, so a layer of broad cultural understanding and sensitivity is becoming more of a priority in educating for global entrepreneurial encounters. In second tier cities in China this is most evident and perhaps is linked partly to the growing numbers of Chinese students wishing to study undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Design. A good example of teaching and learning within a group of postgraduate design students (mainly Chinese) is explored in this book. The potential of creative thinking and outcomes merged with commerce is evident in the idea of creative industries. To prepare students to enter a globalized economy and to be active agents within transformative creative, commercial enterprises, new models of institutional and professional relationships need to be imbedded into the curriculum and throughout this book there are reflections from academics across the world attempting to do this.

Abstract: The shortage of highly skilled engineers in South Africa is of public knowledge and became one of government's priorities. Although the engineering student numbers increased dramatically over the last 10 years, as high as 290% compared to 1988 figures(1), the number of Engineering graduates is very low compared to the industry needs. A major reason for the poor performance of the engineering students is the lack of engineering infrastructure at high school level. Also, many engineering students lack basic self-study skills which for engineering studies are essential. In a study carried out at the University of Johannesburg by Ionescu(2) over a sample of 114 mechanical engineering technology students, it was found that the lack of proper career advising at high school level for many students results in the wrong choice for tertiary education. However, once in the system the industrial exposure through work integrated learning and a proper choice of laboratory experiments for the engineering modules can increase the ability of the future engineer to understand his/her profession and successfully finish his/her engineering studies.

Students and their parents wonder if college is worth the investment. Employers want graduates with the skills they need. The public wonders if higher education is preparing future generations for an era of dynamic change. In his latest book, William Sullivan offers a model of higher education that answers all these questions in the affirmative, through the power of integrated learning. Drawing on examples from the 25 members of the New American Colleges & Universities (NAC&U) consortium, the book makes the case for an approach that combines the strengths of the liberal arts, professional studies, and civic responsibility in order to give students the combination of skills and experience that will prepare them for success in all aspects of life after graduation. NAC&U campuses place emphasis upon enabling their students to know themselves and their abilities, as well as providing them with opportunities to develop a sophisticated understanding of the world. To achieve these goals, the academic programs focus on developing students intellectual and practical skills, such as analytical ability, problem solving, facility in written and spoken communication, and an appreciation for human diversity and creativity. These have traditionally been identified as the goals of a liberal arts education, and are the same ones identified in a national employer survey as giving job-seekers an edge. These institutions also invest a great deal of effort to provide their students with state-of-the-art preparation for professional life and occupational success in diverse fields. These range from the technical science and technology fields, with disciplines such as engineering and computer science through business, and across the human service fields, such as education, nursing, pre-medicine, and pre-law, to architecture, and the performing and visual arts. In these courses of study, students begin to shape their future careers. The important third value of a NAC&U education is fostering civic responsibility among students. In programs of study abroad and a range of internship and service opportunities, these colleges support their students in shaping for themselves unique and effective ways to contribute to the larger life of their world. Parents and prospective students may appreciate the chance to learn more about these schools and what they have to offer, while those working in higher education will appreciate the chance to learn more about a model that their own institutions may be motivated to emulate. All readers will take away a picture of a truly vital part of the higher education landscape in this country. .goodreadsGiveawayWidget { color: ȫ font-family: georgia, serif; font-weight: normal; text-align: left; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; background: white; } .goodreadsGiveawayWidget p { margin: 0 0 .5em !important; padding: 0; } .goodreadsGiveawayWidgetEnterLink { display: inline-block; color: 𬘺 background-color: #F6F6EE; border: 1px solid #9D8A78; border-radius: 3px; font-family: "Helvetica Neue," Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none; outline: none; font-size: 13px; padding: 5px 5px; } .goodreadsGiveawayWidgetEnterLink: hover { color: 𬘺 background-color: #F7F2ED; border: 1px solid #AFAFAF; text-decoration: none; } Goodreads Book Giveaway The Power of Integrated Learning by William M Sullivan Giveaway ends July 22, 2016.

"The Handbook has four sections. Section I is concerned with the theory of cooperative education, with particular focus on the learning that occurs in the workplace. This part also addresses contemporary issues such as assessment of cooperative education, and identifies areas of needed research. Section II examines the practice of co-op worldwide. This part shows the breadth of disciplines of study, and is intended to allow co-op professionals see how co-op has been used in their discipline and other disciplines. This has been substantially revised from the first edition, with many more disciplines now covered. Each chapter in this section contains contributions from several authors, in most instances from more than one country, in order to gain an international perspective of the practice of co-op. The chapters begin with an overview of the discipline as it pertains to co-op, and consider models of practice, outcomes, constraints, and conclude with a detailed case study of co-op in the discipline. Section III is concerned with the benefits of co-op for all three parties; employers, students, and educational institutions. Section IV concludes the Handbook by considering some current issues confronting co-op, and the future of co-op."--publisher website.
