  We can all build theory from student and graduate stories about work-integrated learning. Research trends support this type of theory construction to understand how our programs help students construct their lives. The story of one such project will be told to illuminate how learning can happen when work and classes alternate. Conference participants can evaluate whether the strategies of learning evident in this study apply to their own students. In this way, local theories about how and what students learn can be compared, combined, and tested to support claims about the benefits of work-integrated learning.
