Engaging La Trobe University International Students – Resources for Students and Industry Partners to facilitate success in Work Integrated Learning programs.
Dr Colleen Holt, Kelly McDermott, Rachel Baron and Rana Bishwas

This webinar showcases the outcomes of a NAFEA-funded project. The project was a collaboration between academic and professional staff in the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) space at La Trobe University. The aims of the project included:

  • Improving the quality of the WIL experience for international students and industry partners hosting international students
  • Potential for engagement of, and support for, more industry partners taking international students in WIL programs which strengthens LTU position as a Partner of Choice.
  • Increase in the number of WIL opportunities offered to/accessible by International students

The overall vision for the project was to provide a range of resources in order to support international students, industry partners and ultimately the broader WIL space at La Trobe University.

I could not recommend a rural placement more, and only wish I could go back and do it all over again!

I encourage all students to attend a rural placement, where you can enhance your knowledge and skills and develop your own positive impression of life in a rural community.

The National Association of Field Experience Administrators Inc. (NAFEA) represents tertiary administrators engaged in the logistical placement of students for field experiences. Initially more Education focused with members primarily teacher education administrators, interest was sparked from a wide range of disciplines also managing field experience programs.

The issues and problems surrounding the logistical organisation of field experience programs were echoed across all disciplines. Membership of the Association now includes administrators and academic staff from a wide range of disciplines.
