Governments around the world are committed to enhancing students’ “graduateness”. Work-integrated learning (WIL) is one of the many programmes which Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) can develop to promote this facet of student life. The incorporation of work-integrated learning in curriculum design and development can produce reciprocal benefits for students, workplaces, professions and communities. Any curriculum design and development endeavour relating to WIL requires appropriate resources to support curriculum development. This book serves to explore WIL programmes and experiences for the student, WIL coordinator and supervisor. It further integrates practical, relevant and reflective industry experience within the higher education curriculum to enhance student development. WIL has no uniformly or specific framework or approaches since it is an emerging field and is generally influenced by contextual factors. In view of the diversity in theory and practice and different purposes, whether pragmatic or practical, driving the adoption of one approach over another, this book highlight sthe diverse approaches that encapsulate WIL in South Africa.

The digital era gives many new opportunities for higher education. Especially online education makes it possible to reach new groups of students like, for instance, full time working professionals. This case study investigates an online course in applied statistics constructed to attract "non-traditional students" such as full-time working professionals. The course was constructed using the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) approach as well as guidelines for statistics courses (GAISE) and online courses. The main goal of the article is to investigate if the course attracted the participants that were intended, and to summarize the pedagogical experiences from the course. Among the findings are that the course succeeded in attracting "non-traditional students", it is also found that the concept of WIL and GAISE helps increase the participant's interest in, and perceived usability of, statistics. Furthermore, the concept of WIL can be enhanced, both for the traditional and "non-traditional" students, by inviting the "non-traditional students"to share statistical problems from their workplace. This opens up for the pedagogical concept of using the participants in the course as a resource for WIL and hence building a course with the students rather than for the students.

The challenge of globalization and technology and the flow of students seeking higher education in another country and then employment in a globally connected environment is a difficult one for educators. Work Integrated Learning (WIL) has become quite standard in undergraduate degrees and some strategies for implementing WIL in the curriculum are exampled throughout this book. Authors of Transformative Pedagogies in the Visual Domain employ case studies and engaging curriculum content to reflect on a world with porous borders and student aspirations for a world of professional work where collaborators, employers, companies and clients are spread nationally and internationally. Technology enables a greater possibility of global work placements, so a layer of broad cultural understanding and sensitivity is becoming more of a priority in educating for global entrepreneurial encounters. In second tier cities in China this is most evident and perhaps is linked partly to the growing numbers of Chinese students wishing to study undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in Design. A good example of teaching and learning within a group of postgraduate design students (mainly Chinese) is explored in this book. The potential of creative thinking and outcomes merged with commerce is evident in the idea of creative industries. To prepare students to enter a globalized economy and to be active agents within transformative creative, commercial enterprises, new models of institutional and professional relationships need to be imbedded into the curriculum and throughout this book there are reflections from academics across the world attempting to do this.

Results are limited in scope to Vietnam, but a proposed conceptual framework based on stakeholder theory indicates that institutional support for WIL generates locally-relevant student learning outcomes, mutually-beneficial collaborative relationships between frontline academic and industry staff, and wider institutional benefits that are particularly valuable in the TNE environment.
