Research and teaching: beyond the divide

Angela Brew

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The relationship between research and teaching has become increasingly problematic in today's Higher Education environments, yet students are still required to develop the skills of research and inquiry in order to address the challenges of professional life in the twenty-first century. This book asks how universities can develop the relationship between research and teaching so that research is enhanced and teaching is improved. It sees initiatives to integrate the relationship between research and teaching as steps on the path to the development of a new Higher Education. Moreover, Research and Teaching suggests the establishment of inclusive scholarly knowledge-building communities of both students and academic staff as a product of development of research-enhanced and evidence-based teaching, teaching-enhanced research, and the erosion of institutional and cultural factors in Higher Education that currently undermine attempts to link research and teaching. Using examples, conversations and critical inquiry, the volume provides new understanding of the relationships between research and teaching, and how they can be strengthened.
