Ward, Lisa J. and Clifford, Richard (2012) Developing an International Work Integrated Learning (WIL)and Work Placement Resource Directory. In: ASET Annual Conference 2012 - Proceedings of the 2012 Placement and Employability Professionals’ Conference. ASET Conference Proceedings . ASET, Sheffield, UK, pp. 111-114. ISBN 0-9564559-5-6

Have you ever looked for resources related to work placements and not known where to find them? This is a challenge that colleagues from around the world face. Most practitioners or researchers know of their national association and sources of funding support but may not be aware of the wider global picture. The use of different terms across the world for broadly similar activities can also be unhelpful.

Whilst representing ASET at a meeting of the National Placement Associations in Philadelphia, I volunteered to compile an electronic directory of resources relating to work placements, work-integrated learning and co-operative education.

This workshop will discuss:
• How the project came about
• Where the resources are and how to track them down
• Finding a student collaborator
• The work carried out so far
• Quality control of resources
• Organisation of resources
• Challenges ahead

Participants will be able to:
• Become familiar with a range of resource to support their own research or practice
• Contribute to the next steps for the project
