What is research informed teaching and why does it matter?

Wednesday 15 June, University of Leicester School of Business 

This practical workshop for module leaders in higher education institutions considers what research-informed teaching actually is, how it is best designed, and what value it adds for both the learner and the teacher.

The first part of the workshop aims to discuss the current thinking in the pedagogic literature on what research-informed teaching is and bring this insight into the reality and challenges of university teaching practice. Consequently, distinctions are made between own, other academics’ research and students’ own research informing teaching, and how this might be incorporated to best effect in designing the student learning experience and their subsequent engagement. Reported benefits of research-informed teaching include enhanced student engagement and students that are better placed for the world of employment.

In the second half of the workshop, you will work in teams to develop your own research-informed teaching approach for a course you currently, or are likely to, deliver. Participants are therefore encouraged to bring with them a copy of their course/module outlines for this purpose.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the workshop participants will:

  • Understand what research-informed teaching is
  • Know how to use research to inform your own teaching practice using a variety of approaches.
  • Be able to critique the usefulness of different research-informed teaching approaches for different audiences.
  • Have identified a research-informed development pathway for a course/module of your own choice.
