Work-Integrated Learning Framework: Employability Skills and Micro-credentials

eCampusOntario proposes an OER that provides a framework which helps educators and employers systemize work-integrated learning (WIL) experiences through the chart of employability skills provided by the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF) to identify competencies for microcredentialing . This OER will first provide context on the Consortium de l’apprentissage expérientiel francophone de l’Ontario (CAPFO); secondly, a distinction between experiential learning and work-integrated learning will be provided, and finally, the employability skills chart specified by the AUF will be included to provide a lens through which educators may systemize WIL experiences. Participants will also discover the micro-credential principles and framework at the end of this OER.
