Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Mini-Symposium at UTM 

The Experiential Education Unit (EEU), Office of the Dean, and the Institute for Management & Innovation (IMI) are excited to be hosting the next tri-campus Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) Mini-Symposium at the University of Toronto Mississauga!

Please join us on Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 10:00am – 2:00pm (lunch provided) in the UTM Room (3rd floor, William G. Davis Building (DV), room 3141). 

The WIL Mini-Symposiums are a series of events initiated by The Impact Centre Science to Society and are meant to provide a "place where current and future practitioners of WIL pedagogy meet and share best practices, new ideas, and most importantly, share failures, disappointments and challenges." The event is open to all staff and faculty at U of T who engage with WIL.
