Creating Relevant Learning Experiences; employers’ involvement with higher education

The conference contributes to approaches that higher education, employers and other stakeholders can take to structure and implement strategies and curricula to enable students and employees to learn through, for and in work environments.

Work-integrated learning (WIL), work-based learning (WBL) and apprenticeships have already started to develop these relationships and the conference looks at the key skills employers look for, and how these essential competencies can be embedded in HEIs’ curricular and ;

The conference will offer expertise and discussion to provide practitioners, educational managers and policy makers with the opportunity to gain greater insight into how the challenges and gaps of work and learning issues can be overcome and to develop the pedagogy and systems to the benefit of engagement with learning for and in work. The conference will disseminate the findings of the Beehives Project and draw upon the expertise of academics in the field through papers and presentations.

Conference’s focus

How can there be effective co-operation between the fields of education and the world of work? How can companies and enterprises become more engaged with work based and work integrated learning? How can students both contribute and be served by the strategic triangle of work, students and education? These will be the main issues of the conference.
