9780810850200: A Model for Work-Based Learning

Work-based learning, in which professional work experience is closely integrated with professional study, now forms an important part of many courses in tertiary institutions. A Model for Work-Based Learning offers a plan designed to enhance the professional experience through facilitated mentoring and reflective learning, and is based on an internship that has proven highly successful over the last ten years at the University of Canberra. This strategy, which features collaborative teaching and learning, is applicable to other professional courses within tertiary environments. Part 1 describes the research base for all aspects of the model and shows how a program based on the theoretical model can be implemented, bringing together facilitated mentoring and theory. Part 2 contains a range of activities that can be used by educators during all aspects of the work experience, from preparing students and mentors through assisting the student's move into the professional workforce. The conclusion explores the crucial success factors of the work-based learning model. This volume is an invaluable guide to educators and mentors in the workplace.

About the Author:

Belle Alderman is a Professor of Children's Literature in the Division of Communication and Education at the University of Canberra in Australia. Patricia Milne is Head of the School of Information Management and Tourism at the University of Canberra.

Review:

Overall this is a well written and clearly presented volume that will be particularly useful to anyone involved in developing an internship or similar program, regardless of discipline. Even those with more experience in the area will find this a useful tool for assessing their own programs. (Australian Academic & Research Libraries, Vol. 37 No. 2, June 2006)

...a useful work...the authors have not only made a good case for formalising the learning aspects, but have produced a handy introduction to how this may be done. (Australian Library Journal, February 2007)

Work-based learning, where professional work experience is closely integrated with professional studies, now forms an important component of many higher education courses, though the design, implementation, and monitoring of such learning is subject to much debate. Alderman and Milne (communication and education, U. of Canberra, Australia) offer educators a work-based learning model designed to enhance the experience through facilitated mentoring and reflective learning, based on a successful internship for an undergraduate course in library and information science used at the U. of Canberra over the past decade. In addition to the detailed discussion of the model and its components, the text features an extensive section of supplementary activities and sample documents, which educators can use during all aspects of the work experience. (Reference and Research Book News)
