Work-integrated learning in your classroom

Integrate industry projects into your teaching

Work-integrated learning is an opportunity for faculty to incorporate career-centered experiences into classroom learning. ASU's work-integrated learning program connects faculty with employers, assisting faculty members as they embed experiential learning into their course and providing tools for students to work on related industry projects.

Using the Riipen platform

ASU's Work-integrated learning is facilitated through Riipen, a remote project-based learning platform. Riipen is available for all faculty in every discipline, and is used both in-person and virtually, such as online experiences.

Riipen offers end-to-end support, including course project ideation and design, technical support and student onboarding, and matchmaking with industry partners globally.

I sincerely value the opportunity for students to connect with an organization outside of the university, to strategize and solve real problems based on class content.
