The context: Associated with WIL for 25 years, specifically cooperative education, professional practice, and Industry Engaged Learning. Do not currently have students in WIL. However, Unitec is undergoing a huge makeover in implementing Applied Practice—virtually all postgraduate programs and qualifications will have organisational and community projects. Includes a major reconceptualisation and delivery of dissertations, masters, thesis, and PhDs. Bhavana Mehta just completed her masters thesis on the state of the art of CT learning in New Zealand tertiary sector.
