"Work Integrated Learning combines professional work experience with classroom studies in many forms to include: internships, study abroad, co-operative education, clinical rotations community service and student teaching" WACE. The ideals of WIL are to integrate learning in academic and work environments but there are great differences in the extent to which WIL is interpreted and implemented in both philosophical and curriculum design senses.


Some institutions e.g. Queensland University of Technology, see the idea of WIL (one which seeks to gain learning from both work/community and academic contexts) as sitting within a broader concept of a curriculum for real world learning: a view that is consistent with our emergent ideas about learning for a complex world.
