The Work-Learn Institute conducts projects in the following areas: quality program design, future of work and work-integrated learning (WIL), student experience outcomes and employer experience outcomes.

Check out the WIL Research Portal

In partnership with IST and co-op colleagues around the world, the Work-Learn Institute has launched the Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Research Portal to provide researchers and practitioners with an online resource for published research on co-operative education and work-integrated learning. With over 1,200 articles and publications, the WIL Research Portal provides individuals with easy access to cutting-edge knowledge with respect to WIL research, as well as a way to suggest resources and explore trends around the world.

With a connectivity component, researchers will be able to make connections with others across institutions and increase the amount of international research being conducted. Ultimately, the goal of this project is to increase communication between WIL researchers and practitioners and provide greater access to research being conducted within this growing field.
