This chapter applies an evaluation research framework to investigate a modest number of business students’ perceptions when completing a post-practicum teamwork assessment task, which was linked to three interventions for improving professional experience. The study focused on better understanding how post-practicum teamwork learning experiences that integrate interventions might be best aligned to support professional learning. The study took place at a large Australian University where a credit elective unit of study was offered to undergraduate students via a university-wide Industry or Community Project that was part of a Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Program. The results of the investigation illuminate on the challenges that students encountered when preparing for and undertaking a post-practicum teamwork experience. We provide some considerations and several curriculum improvement strategies for better crafting post-practicum teamwork interventions for improving professional teamwork learning.
