In this month's issue of Co-op Research Matters (PDF), we feature research surrounding critical reflection for workplace readiness and employer retention. We're so happy to have our very own co-op student, Laura Jackson (Research Assistant, WatCACE), and fellow colleague, Peggy Eichinger (Regional Manager, West, Co-operative Education), contribute to this month's newsletter.
WatCACE has teamed up with the Waterloo Co-op Accessibility Team (WatCAT) to share their curated resources for co-operative education programs with focus on enhancing accessibility and support for all students.
Back in December 2017, WatCACE surveyed 455 supervisors, recruiters and executives to better understand the dynamics of “talent management” from the perspective of organizations that hire work-integrated learning (WIL) students.
The Asia-Pacific Journal of Co-operative Education (APJCE) will now be known as the International Journal of Work-Integrated Learning (IJWIL). This journal features original peer-reviewed research on topics surrounding work-integrated learning.
WatCACE is connected to IJWIL as our Director Judene Pretti is one of the Associate Editors of the journal. Explore the website to learn more about IJWIL and access the database for your next research project.
