Anita Dewi, Jung-Sim Kim, Andrew David Jackson

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


To enhance the employability skills of Korean Studies students of Monash University’s Faculty of Arts, a Library Internship Program was developed as a collaboration between the Faculty of Arts’ Korean Studies Program and Monash University Library. This chapter presents a critical reflection on the implementation of the Work Skill Development (WSD) framework in the internship from the perspectives of the host supervisors, the academic convenor of Korean Studies and the student interns. We address the internship against the WSD framework to provide a comprehensive understanding of how it facilitated the implementation and enabled the success of this program.
