About the Author

Dr. Tracey Bowen is Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream in the Institute of Communication, Culture, Information, and Technology at the University of Toronto Mississauga, Canada. Her research focuses on examining students’ transition between academic life and industry contexts in terms of the personal, professional, and intellectual shifts they experience, and how they articulate the challenges of that transition through critical reflective writing. This research also probes students’ perceptions of what it means to be a professional and how they self-manage their behaviours in order to be seen and accepted as a new professional when entering the workforce. This work has been published in Studies in Higher Education and Higher Education Research and Development. She is also a member of the World Association for Cooperative and Work-Integrated Education-International Research Group (WACE-IRG). Dr. Maureen Drysdale is an Associate Professor of Psychology, St. Jerome’s University, and Cross-Appointed Professor, Applied Health Studies – School of Public Health and Health Systems, University of Waterloo, Canada. Her research examines how learner differences, psychological constructs, peer support, sense of belonging, mental health, and overall wellbeing impact school-to-work transitions and success in the labour market. Her work has been presented at numerous conferences and published in several academic journals and books. She is the Executive Chair for the World Association for Cooperative and Work-Integrated Education-International Research Group (WACE-IRG), a member of the WACE Board of Governors, and the recipient of three prominent research awards for outstanding and distinguished research in CWIE (CEIA – Ralph Tyler Award, CEIA - James Wilson Award, CAFCE - Graham Branton Award).
