2012 (English)In: Conference proceedings: abstracts : all concurrent sessions presented at the 9th International Conference on Cooperative & Work Integrated Education, Bahcecehir: Bahcecehir University , 2012, 47-48 p.Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
Work Based/Placed Learning should not just introduce the students to a future professional role, but, in doing so, should be structured to retain the core elements of Higher Education learning through stimulating a critical and reflective attitude as well as aiming to fully develop the diversity of skills needed to encode, decode, ponder, interpret, evaluate and reach decisions about knowledge and practice. Learning at both the university and during the work--‐placed period might require students to adjust to routines and rules, but should also require them to exercise critical thinking that challenges status quo on the basis of a scientific approach to learning. Such a point of departure means that fundamental higher education pedagogical issues are put in focus. The Workshop will discuss different ways to address these pedagogical challenges drawing on the experience from the participants own pedagogical practice in or/and out of campus.
