Abstract

Two approaches to work-integrated learning (WIL) at university include multiple, extended placements (Co-op) and building practice-based learning into every student’s degree (PBL). A combination of depth (Co-op) and breadth (practice-based learning for all) strategies is more likely to maximise graduate employability by providing WIL opportunities to more students. We adopt a resource-based view of university competitive advantage to explore how existing resources associated with a Co-op program might provide advantages for launching new PBL programs, or vice versa. Relevant resources include, for example, university commitment at multiple levels, partner relationships and the national policy environment. Offering multiple types of WIL enables universities to meet diverse student and partner needs. Drawing on the findings from this exploratory research, we identify examples of good practice to support universities as they expand the depth or breadth of WIL programs.
