Career Readiness Community of Practice

Identifying, developing and sharing best practice: in Faculties, University-wide, Nation-wide


To support excellence teaching and learning practices that facilitate students to develop the knowledge, skills, contacts, confidence and networks they need to be ready for the future professional career. In 2018 the Career Readiness Communities of Practice (CoP) is focussing on work-integrated learning (WIL). We will:

  • Develop a best practice guidance for designing and implementing WIL experiences; 
  • Create and distribute resources for those designing and running WIL courses, and for students, which will maximise learning outcomes and the student experience;
  • Engage the University of Adelaide community in the process of achieving excellence in all WIL course experiences.

Topics for Discussion

  • Volunteering
  • Internships
  • Employability
