    Research-based learning (RBL) is a multifaceted approach for orchestrating a variety of learning and teaching strategies in order to connect research and instruction. This chapter presents a theoretical insight into RBL and teaching which integrates learning, teaching, and research. Further, a curriculum for descriptive and inferential statistics using the RBL and teaching approach is introduced. The chapter wraps up with reflections on further implementation of RBL and teaching, including the adoption of new technologies to assist this important approach of university education.
