"Learning opens us out that we can see more of what we still need to learn – it draws us into wider conversations that whisper to us of more distant voices that we did not even know we had ignored – and, when we finally hear those voices, they will speak to us of still more distant, still more unexpected, voices waiting on the edges of our perception"

I am very excited and looking forward to the publication "Applications of Work Integrated Learning Among Gen Z and Y Students" edited by myself and Paulette Anon due to be published in March 2021. It will contain WIL case studies from around the world with a specific focus on Gen Y and Z. I have a chapter in the book which I produced with two students whom I supervised. Details can be seen here:

The book is now complete and a global conference has been created to launch the book. The book is edited by myself and Paulette Annon and I have co-authored a chapter with two graduate students as well. 

The book contains case studies from Work Integrated Learning practitioners from around the world. Each chapter is unique in terms of disciplines and contexts.
