Linking research with teaching is one of the main topics in the educational development world. This practice-based guide shows how academic research activity can be connected to academic teaching activity, to ensure that neither operates in a vacuum - and each can be enhanced by the other.;Addressing issues at the individual, course and institutional level, and written for an international readership, this volume should be useful to course leaders and educational developers.

They look at how research and teaching can be brought together at the personal, departmental, institutional and national level. They find that at the personal level the connection is implied but that at the national level at least in the UK the current funding bias towards research through the RAE is pushing teaching and research further apart. One way they see of improving this connection is to strengthen subject specific pedagogy by developing scholarship and including this as a research outcome.
This book was written in 2001/02 and there was an expectation that the framework for the 2006/7 RAE (ultimately it was the 2008/9 RAE) would be altered to try and develop the nexus. The research councils have certainly changed the way they fund post-graduate education in the UK using the doctoral training centres in particular to strengthen interdisciplinary areas. So it would be interesting to see how the authors view the changes since 2001 and if they think that the situation has improved or deteriorated.
