Project LINK
  • FDTL phase 3: 2000-2003
  • Built Environment (town and country planning, land and property management and construction)
  • Four ‘new’ universities
slide3
Two questions:
  • What do we understand and mean by linking teaching and research?
  • How can we implement and strengthen the relationship between teaching and research?
slide4

From

an education and curriculum development project

to

a project on educational research and institutional change

slide5

Conclusions from

Project LINK?

The link does not occur automatically it has to be managed

Strategies for linking teaching and research are needed at three levels:

Institutional level policies and strategies for teaching, research, staffing and programme development /audit;

Faculty/departmental level policies for staffing, workload planning, and managing teaching and research;

Curriculum level for design, delivery and assessment and programme monitoring.

slide6

Many of the findings of Project LINK are generic

Nature of the link is shaped by the discipline.

Vocational and professional areas like the built environment are more likely to be research-based rather than research-led.

slide8

“The link between research and teaching happens or not within departments and faculties.”

    • Zetter (2003) Making the Departmental Link Between Research and Teaching, Exchange

Institutional setting - formative

Departmental level - enactment

Curriculum level - implementation

slide10

Management and

Organisational Structure e.g.

  • how does the l&t strategy articulate research and teaching/learning links?
  • how are the teaching and research cultures, organised, motivated and resourced? are they managed for mutual engagement?
      • how do research teams and course teaching teams link with each other? how are these links facilitated?
      • are research ‘clusters’ also ‘teaching teams’?
  • is there an ‘inclusive’ culture? how are teaching staff ‘managed’ in developing research capacity and vice versa?
  • do staffing policies, line management, appraisal and workload planning facilitate research/teaching links?
slide11

Inclusive Culture e.g.

  • what are the mechanisms for disseminating and communicating research outputs and teaching practice? are they shared?
  • how is the research culture and activity given visibility to students? how do they come into contact with departmental research?
  • what are the strategies to disseminate research-based teaching experience from the module level?
  • what profile is given to pedagogic research? how is it applied?
  • how is impact of external agencies taken into account? - e.g. professional institutes, institutional T&L strategies
slide13

Departmental Change

Strategies and Policies

  • Focus groups and departmental meetings - to understand the nature of the LINK in your discipline
  • Department audit/SWOT analysis
  • Detailed audit of courses and research
  • Review staff development policies
  • Develop programme monitoring and review
  • Teaching and Learning and Research Strategies
  • Harmonizing teaching teams and research clusters
some good practice examples from project link
SOME ‘GOOD PRACTICE’ EXAMPLES from Project LINK

Students use data from research projects and re-conduct analysis.

Use research papers and/or research projects to understand/critique methodology and findings.

Engage students as research assistants in finite parts of projects.

Develop role-play from research - different actors and stakeholders.

Projects with employers as clients incorporate research activity.

Research students, research assistants debrief on research work.

Students simulate tendering based on live research/ consultancy projects.

Make research papers available on intranet.
