This chapter outlines perspectives on information technology (IT), including definitions of IT, and discusses the way these shape the WIL experience. A continuum model of cooperative education is introduced, followed by an exploration of its components and characteristics through a set of examples and a case study of various hybrid approaches to work-integrated learning in IT. Observing that IT encompasses a diversity of cooperative education models, the chapter concludes with a brief review of issues particular to cooperative education in IT.
