Shaping Higher Education with Students

Ways to Connect Research and Teaching

Forging close links between research and teaching is a key way universities can enhance learning in higher education. Given the current focus on student engagement, there is widespread and growing interest in how can university leaders and educators can more effectively engage with their students to connect research and teaching.

In Shaping Higher Education with Students, leading researchers and educators from a range of disciplines lay out practical steps for shaping research-based education. Written in collaboration with university students, the book encourages active partnerships between students and educators and offers an accessible guide to accomplishing this, including connecting students with real-world projects and workplaces, working with students as partners in higher education, encouraging students to pursue research activities that transcend disciplinary boundaries, and rethinking current assessment and teaching practices. Together, the contributions poses fundamental questions about the future of education in universities.
