New tools to facilitate industry-university engagement

Today the IRU network of seven universities has launched a range of materials to encourage industry and universities to work together to develop Australia’s future skilled workforce.

Businesses are encouraged to work with universities and students to create mutually beneficial projects and placements that align with the curriculum – what is commonly known as work integrated learning (WIL).

The new documents provide a practical toolkit for employers. Discipline specific information is also provided for areas which are newer to the WIL concept – Business, Creative Arts, Information Technology, and Law.
