CONFERENCE ON EMPLOYERS' ENGAGEMENT WITHIN HIGHER EDUCATION

Conference 'Creating Relevant Learning Experiences; employers' involvement with higher education' 14-15 June, 2018 in Leuven



The conference contributes to approaches that higher education, employers and other stakeholders can take to structure and implement strategies and curricula to enable students and employees to learn through, for and in work environments. Work-integrated learning (WIL), work-based learning (WBL) and apprenticeships have already started to develop these relationships and the conference looks at the key skills employers look for, and how these essential competencies can be embedded in HEIs' curricular and structures. This conference will offer expertise and discussion to practitioners, educational managers and policy makers with the opportunity to gain greater insight into how the challenges and gaps of work and learning issues can be overcome and to develop the pedagogy and systems to the benefit of engagement with learning for and in work.
