Work-based learning, in which professional work experience is closely integrated with professional study, now forms an important part of many courses in tertiary institutions. A Model for Work-Based Learning offers a plan designed to enhance the professional experience through facilitated mentoring and reflective learning, and is based on an internship that has proven highly successful over the last ten years at the University of Canberra. This strategy, which features collaborative teaching and learning, is applicable to other professional courses within tertiary environments.
