A presentation by Professor Simon Haslett at a Higher Education Aacdemy Wales Research-Teaching Nexus Action Set Meeting held at Aberystwyth University on 10th February 2011. Professor Haslett is Dean of the School of STEM at the University of Wales.
In the presentation, Professor Haslett examines the ways in which research and teaching may be linked in academic practice in Higher Education. He attempts to unravel the various linkages through scholarship, research (both subject-based and pedagogic), and curriculum, and outlines the activity and contribution of the Higher Education Academy Research-Teaching Nexus Action Set in Wales. The presentation draws upon his recent experience as Director of the Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching at the University of Wales, Newport, as a case study, and he also provides examples of research-teaching links from his own professional practice.
