Workshop Name Designing a course with strong links to research
About Workshop Otago prides itself on excellence in excellence in both research and teaching. Moreover, in the University’s ‘Strategic Direction to 2020’, under ‘Excellence in Teaching’, there is a commitment to sustaining a strong research-teaching link. But what does this mean? Is it about disciplinary research being woven into teaching or is it about designing research activities for students to engage in, or both?

In the workshop we will consider the basics of course design and discuss the variety of ways links can be made between teaching and research. Participants will be invited to share examples and to consider how their teaching repertoire could be expanded to include the full range of ways to link teaching and research.

By the end of this workshop participants should.

1. Be aware of the principles of good course design
2. Have considered different ways to strengthen the links between research and teaching
3. Have shared examples of linking teaching and research
4. Be able to apply the principles in designing courses with strong teaching-research links.

Please note that our seminar room is up a flight of stairs. Please let Candi Young ( know if this will cause accessibility issues for you.
