The second ACEN Critical Conversation was held last week. These sessions are a virtual platform for discussion of current issues facing WIL practitioners as we respond to COVID-19.

The guest speakers were Associate Professor Rola Ajjawi, Dr Joanna Tai and Professor David Boud, who presented on CRADLE’s guide for assessment in WIL.

The guide is in final development, having been progressed through an ACEN funded project last year.

A number of discipline groups then entered break oput rooms to discuss recent challenges and strategies for assessing WIL and any new thinking prompted by their responses to the CRADLE guide. The webinar concluded with reflections on reported themes from the discipline group discussions and the CRADLE team’s comments on feedback from the group as an impetus for refining the final guide to be released soon.
