Formatted Abstract/Summary
Supporting the change in students' position from detached observers to involved performers is seen as a cornerstone in addressing the contemporary transition from an industrial to a knowledge-based economy and society. The Faculty of Built Environment and Engineering at QUT is implementing a teaching and learning project aiming at enhancing students' learning outcomes from the workplace components of their courses.

This paper reports on issues and considerations addressed in designing a web interface in support of work integrated learning. The web interface is designed based on constructivist principles which engage students in ways which required reflection and demonstrated knowledge construction. A multi-disciplinary team was formed with the clear goal of creating a flexible, web based system applicable across a range of courses and work based experiences from site visits to work placements. With sustainability in mind the web interface offers students access to a range of resources while also providing self-paced training for both academic and industry staff in the areas of consultation and negotiation; experiential learning design; supervision and mentoring; and workplace assessment.
