Abstract

This paper outlines the innovative cross-discipline Learning in the Workplace and Community (LiWC) partnership model being trialled in the Faculty of Arts, Education and Human Development (FAEHD) at Victoria University (VU). The multi-faceted model responds to challenges arising out of a VU commitment to 25 per cent LiWC assessment across all courses. The model is based on the creation of holistic dialectical partnerships with external organisations in triangular learning relationships, consistent with the reconceptualization of twenty-first century learning. It responds to the challenges of developing and articulating authentic learning outcomes across a diverse faculty and scaffolds quality outcomes in scholarship of teaching and learning, graduate capabilities, flexible learning, and curriculum internationalization outcomes. The multi-faceted model also supports all stakeholder learning and maps learning outcomes, which supports the evaluation of progress. Lastly, this paper will also outline the operationalization model, which addresses resourcing issues, such as workload and time constraints, for all stakeholders.
