Title WPL Newsletter June 2017 Degree of recognition Local Media type Duration/Length/Size 6 pages Country/Territory Australia Date 30/06/17 Description With the help from EFPI, CSU Engineering developed an online module for supervisor training, which culminated in a face-to-face workshop on 8th June during Engfest. The online module includes five topics: CSU introduction, Student Selection for Host Organization, Workplace Learning, Good supervision of Cadet Engineers and Assessment in WPL. From 22 industry supervisors participated in the online training, 18 of them engaged in the workshop.
The workshop had several interactive activities; it commenced by focusing on student preparation by watching the video “Preparing for students” from WPL in motion with a group discussion. Then effective mentoring attributes were reviewed and finally CSU Engineering curriculum and the first subject during the workplace (Eng280: Performance Planning and Review) were discussed. During the workshop, important issues such as the use of mobile technology, the time expected for mentoring, CSU structure for WPL triad (University-Industry-Cadet), the method of students’ selection and etc. raised and discussed.
Based on the evaluations, the workshop initiated the networking between supervisors and exposed CSU Engineering expectations to host organisation. The supervisors wanted to be more aware of the capability of their cadet before their engagement.
