Dr Karsten Zegwaard
Cooperative Education Unit Director
Qualifications: BSc, MSc(Tech) (Hons), PhD
I hold a PhD in Science and have since progressed my research into work-integrated learning/cooperative education in the context of science and engineering. My research has primarily focused on key competencies development of students whilst engaging in work-integrated learning (WIL) experiences and student awareness of professional ethics and their development of a professional identity. In additional, I am currently Editor-in-Chief of the Asia-Pacific Journal of Cooperative Education and often facilitate workshops on best practice of WIL programmes and conducting research in WIL.
