With increasing emphasis from universities on workplace learning programs in which students undertake industry placements as part of their degrees, there is a need for disciplines without a tradition of workplace learning to engage with potential industry partners. A key way to address this need is for universities to design web-based portals through which industry partners can engage with these programs. To build industry-university partnerships successfully, industry portals must: be easy for industry partners to find online, and facilitate efficient communication between industry partners and university workplace learning staff and students. Integration with university web systems and governance frameworks can lead to delays in the launch of a web-based industry partner portal. This paper focuses on the early stages of the design and implementation of Queensland University of Technology’s Creative Industries Industry Portal as a case study of a new development in web-based university-industry engagement.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
