The book will include chapters from actual Work Integrated Learning (WIL) practitioners from around the world but will focus specifically on Gen X and Y students. These include internships, placements, projects, and apprenticeships, to list a few. Each chapter will compare practice around themes such as widening access to Higher Education, International Students and integration, employability skills, entrepreneurship, teaching and learning, reflection and other related themes. Two major themes throughout the book are to argue that WIL is not just a process (an activity) but an actual pedagogical discipline illustrated through the themes in each chapter and that this approach is the best approach to prepare the present day and future labor force. It will be the first reference to critically define WIL across the world as a universal practice among Gen Z and Y students.

This book will provide an ideal reference for Higher Education and VET sector Institutions, lecturers within these institutions, students in WIL, career development departments, policy makers and politicians, employers of Gen Z and Y labor and those responsible for curriculum development.
