COIL can be achieved by Work Integrated Learning. DUT has been placing international students in South African organisations over the past three years.
During the partnership, students will engage with individuals and groups in the organisations that have differences and similarities with regards to race, language, ethnic origin, culture, and academic background. Social and interpersonal knowledge, skill and attitude are important components of Intercultural Competence in the world of work and this is a process which has to be managed by all stakeholders. COIL partners can now work together on sharing practices and opportunities in placing students in International industries and organisations and across the world. This partnership has to be managed adequately in the workplace. Academic staff need not travel to assess students, instead the COIL partners can do this in their own countries.
DUT, as part of a growing global institution, is recognizing the need to adapt to a technology enabled environment that benefits students by making them global citizens.
This Action Lab session will outline the current practice of managing WIL with specific reference to students, staff and industry partners using a COIL approach.
