The chapter explores these WIL findings as: embedded life-long learning, continuing professional development, and the various learning modes that employ the work and learning interface. Further, any understanding of a WIL philosophy must incorporate a learner environment for individual ‘action learning’ and institutional (i.e. educational as well as workplace) ‘active learning’ as an initiative that addresses the specific educational imperatives and models outlined.
