NAFEA History

The National Association of Field Experience Administrators Inc. (NAFEA) represents tertiary administrators and those engaged in the logistical placement of students for field experiences, now commonly known as work-integrated learning (WIL).

Initially in the late 1990s, the Association was more education focussed with members primarily teacher education administrators, however interest was sparked from a wide range of disciplines also managing field experience / WIL programs.

The challenges surrounding the logistical organisation of field experience / WIL programs were echoed across all disciplines.

In 2003, after several years of hosting conferences, the Association became an incorporated association within Queensland, Australia. Membership of the Association now includes administrators and academic staff from a wide range of disciplines.
