Description - Research Teaching and Learning in Higher Education by Brenda Smith
The relationship between research, teaching and learning is a key issue for all staff within higher education, both in Britain and internationally. How can staff successfully balance their research and teaching activities? University lecturers are under pressure to teach more and more students, but on the other hand are also pressed into research to secure institutional funding and to get themselves published. This book argues that the system governing the relationship between research, teaching and learning should be dismantled and rebuilt, with the focus firmly on symbiosis rather than conflict. The main areas covered include: research into student learning; acquiring research skills; improving learning processes; staff development programmes for supervisors; and the effect of funding on teaching quality.
