Optional Fields
Warsaw, Poland
Research-based learning (RBL) is heralded as a particularly impactful practice in Higher Education and an exemplar active learning approach. Yet it can be asked as to whether the student experience matches the rhetoric. Does RBL, in the main, provide students with the chance to engage in the co-creation of knowledge, in keeping with the aspirations of active learning? Or is RBL-lite the reality for time and resource stressed staff and institutions? This paper draws on the learning from an earlier EUA Thematic Peer group on research-teaching linkages and provides insights into institutional arrangements in support of research-based learning. The role of mentoring, transdisciplinary learning and connecting with society will be explored with due consideration for the constraints and enablers for this approach to student learning.
