Managing transition from clssroom to workplace

Three stakeholder in commerce intern program: student, org, faculty.

Flexibility & quality for students and org.

Work experience during the course.

Approach - beyond duty of care. Wanting to do more than minimise risk, integrating care into the workplace.

1. involve industry in program development
2. minimise interuption to business - don't ask workplace supervisor to assess students
3. connect the two worlds
4. support introduction and set expectations
5. manage initial placement days but encourage ownership
6. Acting to contribute to relationships - student/org
7. Assess students through a flexible online medium
