Podcast: Building host organisation capacity to provide safe and equitable WIL for students with disability
This ADCET podcast is the audio version of our webinar: Building host organisation capacity to provide safe and equitable WIL for students with disability presented by Tanya Lawlis and Thomas Bevitt from the University of Canberra.
This ADCET webinar welcomed Tanya Lawlis and Thomas Bevitt from the University of Canberra as they presented the findings from their research project.
Inclusive and equitable work integrated learning (WIL) requires the collaboration between universities, host organisations and students. Host organisations, however, are not often included in the collaboration process despite being key in the delivery of WIL resulting in them experiencing many challenges to providing a WIL experience. These challenges, while documented in the literature, are possibly not that well understood with host organisations requiring additional supports to help them navigate these challenges.
This webinar presented three components from the ACEN funded Equitable WIL project:
- The findings of the scoping review that sought to understand the challenges and enablers both host organisations and students experienced during the WIL process.
- The exploratory component of the Equitable WIL study where host organisations were invited to complete an online survey and participate in focus groups.
- Arising from the study findings, the industry informed resources were presented and discussed.
