Abstract

Although work based learning forms an essential element of many courses in higher education its significance is currently undergoing a resurgence. Changes in policy, such as the teaching excellence framework in the UK and the increased demand for postgraduate employability, are taking practice pedagogy out of the shadows.The introduction argues for a move away from stand-alone placement experiences for students to more sophisticated models where work based learning is integrated and used creatively in academic curricula. Morley asserts that, in the right learning conditions, students can challenge established practice and attain employability skills that will mark them out as successful and satisfied employees of the future. The book showcases examples of this ethos from UK higher education work based learning.
