This presentation will highlight the complexities of work integrated learning, and will draw upon a research-based case study of the underperforming learner as a way to illuminate what we are doing well and what we are not doing so well in workplace learning. We will discuss how designing learning activities in the workplace can accelerate learning and professional identity development, and how we might better prepare learners to engage in these opportunities. In particular, the latest literature on the role of feedback and structured peer learning will be presented as ways to amplify knowledge and skill development in the workplace.
