OLT project
Summary Many university programs in Australia undertaken by international students include a field experience (work placements, practicum, work-integrated learning, internships). This component of the program provides teaching and learning opportunities for international students to socialise into workplace settings often in unfamiliar cultural contexts. This presentation draws on data from an Australian Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT) Innovation and Development grant Improving work placement for international students, their mentors and other stakeholders across six universities. An outcome of the project was a ‘model’ developed by the team. This will be discussed taking into account the relationship between the concepts of internationalisation, professional socialisation and reflection. Ideas and recommendations on how to improve international students’ experience during the placement will be shared.
