This interactive workshop will explore how we might best shift from a predominant focus on research led teaching (RLT), emphasizing integrating the content of what academics research into programmes, to an approach focused on research based education (RBE), in which the students are engaged in undertaking research and inquiry and producing new knowledge for themselves and, in many cases, contributing to new knowledge for society. In this workshop, we will explore the variety of ways in which research and inquiry based learning may be integrated into the curriculum, using numerous mini case studies of practices, predominantly from the sciences in research-intensive universities in Europe, Australasia and North America. Key issues include: how to design progression into the curriculum from first to final year; and how to develop ‘inclusive knowledge-building communities’ (Brew 2007) in which students become partners in learning and teaching and are treated as co-researchers and co-inquirers. The workshop will end with discussing how the ideas explored in the workshop may be applied in the Faculty of Sciences at Amsterdam.

This workshop is made possible by Blended learning project Faculty of Science.
