Key Questions in Research-Based Learning

The following key questions offer a starting point for discussion about how teaching and research are linked within modules and courses and may help to identify existing strengths and potential areas for development.

  • Are courses designed with an explicit intention to integrate research both as content in the curriculum and as process (a variety of research-like learning activitites)
  • How, and to what extent, do students come into contact with the department's research?
  • How do students learn research methods and develop research techniques?
  • What opportunities are there for students to do their own research projects and self-directed work?
  • Does research-based learning take place throughout all years of undergraduate degree programmes? If not, could this be further developed?
