Centre for Learning and Teaching


Good Practice Discussions encourage the sharing of practice related to an annual institutional theme.

The discussions involve students as well as Departments, the School and Faculties. They aim to identify areas for local, as well as institutional, action.

Good Practice Discussions are designed to complement the University’s internal review and feedback mechanisms at unit and programme level.

Linking research and teaching

This Good Practice Discussion considers the following areas related to linking research and teaching:

  • studies of the links between teaching and research from a teaching-centred point of view
  • linking research and teaching in terms of policy development, curriculum development and skills development
  • providing opportunities for students to participate in the research culture of the Department/School

The discussion summarises examples of links between teaching and research in the Faculties, Departments and School.

It also suggests resources that can support you in linking research and teaching and next steps you might want to take.
