Supporting WIL: A faculty-wide mapping tool at the University of Canberra

Sharon Bourgeois, Catherine Hungerford

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter


This chapter reports on a project that was undertaken at the University
of Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). The Faculty of
Health at the University of Canberra comprises the disciplines of nursing
and midwifery; nutrition and dietetics; occupational therapy; pharmacy;
physiotherapy; psychology; and sport studies. Each of these disciplines has
unique characteristics, including distinct workplace practices, professional
registration requirements and, as a consequence, divergent curricula. A
• commonality is that all of these disciplines include student clinical or field
placements in relevant environments. These placements are a means for
students to achieve the learning outcomes of their courses and for the courses
to meet certain practice and regulation requirements set by the Australian
Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
