Abstract [en]

Work-Integrated learning (WIL) is a globallygrowing philosophy for higher educational practice.The bottom-line of this pedagogical philosophy is the belief in the potential added value of integrating theoretical academic studies with applications of said theories in various professional fields(education, nursing, engineering, etc.)In order to capitalise on the proposed WIL-values, institutions of higher education design different WIL-models where students enter into their future areas of profession through for instance sandwich-education, cooperative education, practicums, preceptorships, internships and other educational designs in the spirit of WIL.In order to achieve the desired integration, however, it is often necessary to overcome certain obstacles in the academic environment, such as lack of resources and ingrained habits and teaching traditions.This paper reports on a study of how classroom practices reflect and areaffected by WIL as the University profile,that was undertaken in order to address some ofthese problems. The results show the contours of a design framework of how WIL as a pedagogical philosophy could be realised in the classroom and the paper proposes a taxonomy of WIL-related activities that could aid in this realisation. It also presents the results of applying that taxonomy on existing University courses and programmes. Finally, it discusses some aspects regarding the use of the taxonomy for instructional design and what they point to as areas of further research.
