The academic year 2011 a national course in Work Integrated Learning started as a result of cooperation between Kristianstad University and University West. The ambition was to provide opportunities for a unique exchange between teachers, tutors and others associated with WIL and also mtake its point of departure from the participants' own teaching practices.
Our empirical results rests on the participants learning trajectories as well as some reflections on how the course web--‐based design has functioned as a learning facilitator. The preliminary results show that that participants altered between a surface and in depth learning process (Marton, XXXX). Structure seems to foster structure (SilÃn, XXXX). When we were given structure to a really high degree this made the students (our colleagues) demand for more structure.
The pedagogical starting point, the course content and structure will be presented along with the experiences of the course assignments, group discussions, project sketches and reflection diaries. We will also invite to an interactive discussion how to further develop the course through international cooperation.
