Work-integrated learning

Aligning assessment with the needs of work-integrated learning: the challenges of authentic assessment in a complex context Open access logo - orange open padlock
R. Ajjawi, J. Tai, L. H. N. Tran, D. Boud, L. Johnson and C.-J. Patrick (2020) Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education.
One of the most challenging areas of assessment is how to design it for work-integrated learning units. The experiences of students are diverse, unpredictable and the actual learning outcomes available to students can often not be controlled. Now open access, this paper considers how assessment can be aligned more closely to what students learn in placements and internships.

Assessing work-integrated learning programs: a guide to effective assessment design Open access logo - orange open padlock
D. Boud, R. Ajjawi and J. Tai (2020) Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning, Deakin University: Melbourne.
A bonus Christmas cracker – not a paper, but it might help you design your WIL assessments! This guide aims to foster high quality assessment practice in diverse WIL programs and activities, drawing on contemporary research and education theory. It is intended for academics, practitioners and industry partners involved in the design and delivery of WIL assessment, and contains guiding questions and case scenarios.

Research practice

Using video‐reflexive ethnography to understand complexity and change practice
R. Ajjawi, J. Hilder, C. Noble, A. Teodorczuk and S. Billett (2020) Medical Education.
This methodological paper discusses a relatively new collaborative visual research approach that seeks to capture, illuminate and optimise in situ work and education practices. The approach can prompt fresh perspectives and insights into education practice through shared deliberations about how practice might be reimagined and enacted.

Approaching culture in medical education: Three perspectives
C. J. Watling, R. Ajjawi and M. Bearman (2020) Medical Education.
Culture change is frequently identified as a necessary precursor to progress in changing feedback practices. In this cross‐cutting edge paper, we explore how culture has been defined and theorised using three lenses: the organisational perspective; the identity perspective; and the practice perspective.
