Student Success: entrepreneurship and work-integrated learning

Student Success is a six-month longitudinal project for the Connect Benefit Series 2021-22 focusing embedding employability and access, retention, attainment and progression in higher education. This is the second in a series of four podcasts previewing the findings of a literature review on employability 2016-21, which will be published as part of this theme.

In this episode, Dr Roger Dalrymple, Associate Dean: Student Outcomes at Oxford Brookes University is joined by Dr Andrea Macrae, Principal Lecturer, Stylistics and Student Experience at Oxford Brookes University to discuss the aspects of the literature review focusing on entrepreneurship and work-integrated learning, with particular focus on the provision of work placements, the ongoing challenges of objectively measuring the impact of work-integrated learning, differences in student attitudes to entrepreneurship across different faculties, and the future direction of research on work-integrated learning and entrepreneurial education.
