New WILLS cluster

The community at large constitutes a reservoir of linguistic and multicultural wealth that can provide valuable experiential opportunities for students to be exposed to language and culture-rich environments. As such, it promotes academic growth and enhances employability prospects. The Work Integrated Learning and Language Studies (WILLS) cluster offers a collaborative platform that seeks to explore the role of WIL in language studies from practical and theoretical points of view. It aims to facilitate the emergence of common research projects, to design and disseminate educational placement models and guidelines, as well as to promote WIL practices across the tertiary sector. The WILLS group calls on colleagues in Australia who have experience in placing students in language/culture-rich contexts or who are interested in starting their own language placement programs. Please contact Eric Bouvet (eric.bouvet@flinders.edu) in the first instance.
