Description:

As part of the Integrated Learning: Experiential Education at the University of Toronto Series, this Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) workshop will provide participants with a framework for the efficient development of course-based WIL experiences and information on models and resources available to support the development and offering of such courses. Speakers will provide a theoretical framework to ground the development of WIL experiences, highlight case study examples of different models for embedding WIL experiences within courses, walk through the process of designing experiences that link directly to program outcomes, and provide practical guidance on the administration of WIL opportunities within the University of Toronto context. Participants will work with the facilitators to begin the development or redesign process for new or existing WIL-based courses or programs, and will leave with a more thorough understanding of how to offer this type of course or program at the University of Toronto.

Purpose of the Series:

  • Develop a community of practice within U of T around the various models of Integrated Learning
  • Provide opportunities for instructors and program leaders to engage in an instructional design process, with support from recognized experts
  • Establish connections with and learn from leading practitioners at peer institutions
