The 2023 Triple Helix & ACEEU Conference was hosted at La Salle – Ramon Llull University in Barcelona. The Conference, known for its commitment to fostering collaboration and innovation, has attracted professionals from various sectors. This year's conference theme, "Entrepreneurial and Engaged Universities for Sustainable Development," highlights the importance of linking university and industry to achieve the SDGs.
The eWBL project was represented in the conference by Habtamu Garomssa, Research Associate and PhD Candidate at the Science to Business Marketing Research Center (S2BMRC) of FH Münster University of Applied Sciences.
The presentation focused on the following central questions 1) How work-based learning was provided before COVID-19 across the 5 partner countries i.e., Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Ireland and Slovenia? 2) The challenges encountered in shifting to a hybrid or fully online work-based learning (eWBL)? 3) The implications of eWBL on learning outcomes 4) The solutions developed by students, supervisors, educators, and administrators to cope with the challenges? And 5) The long-term implications of the eWBL experience.
The conference served as an excellent opportunity not only to disseminate the results of the eWBL project but also to network with other like-minded individuals and organizations passionate about fostering work-readiness and employability of graduates via work-based learning.
