This presentation will discuss some of the educational development strategies used to implement a university-wide project to extend and embed work based learning across all the schools. It will consider the change strategies and models for engagement that were used and give a flavour of the range of project enterprises that were undertaken as part of the Centre for Excellence in Work-based Learning (CEWBL) activities. Based on a model of a hub which formed the core of the CEWBL, reaching as spokes into each school, represented by individual work-based learning (WBL) champions, the effectiveness of this approach will be considered in relation to uptake and adoption of WBL pedagogies in different subject disciplines. Factors which facilitated or hindered the embedding of WBL into subject disciplines will be discussed and the implications for future educational development projects within Higher Education identified.
