This chapter extends and updates a previous chapter by Bartkus and Stull (2004) that appeared inthe 2004 edition of the International Handbook for Cooperative Education (Coll and Eames2004). In that chapter, we used the term 'cooperative education' to refer to a broad range ofexperiences that combine education with practical work. Our review of the literature indicates aplethora of other terms used to describe these experiences such as work-integrated learning,work-based learning, workplace learning, career and technical education, internships,experiential education, experiential learning, vocational education and training, fieldworkeducation, service learning, project- and problem-based learning, practicums, and workplacements, among others. While each of these terms may have their own unique history anddefinition, we also found that they are sometimes used inter-changeably, which may lead to someambiguity and confusion among researchers in the course of conducting a review of theliterature.
