Research Informed Teaching

Across the university, our staff and postgraduate research students undertake research and knowledge exchange activity that generates new knowledge. This knowledge feeds into reports, journal papers, books, patents, artistic presentations and PhD theses.

Importantly, this new knowledge infuses our undergraduate and taught postgraduate curriculum. 

For our students this keeps our taught content current, innovative and challenging. It allows our students to recognise the work done in LJMU and the value of the outputs produced by our postgraduate research students and fellows.

This can underpin personal knowledge and skills development, develop new career opportunities, support enhanced employability, and increase overall student satisfaction with their educational experience.

These Research Informed Teaching examples, have been collected from across all of our faculties. They illustrate scenarios where LJMU research and knowledge exchange has changed and enhanced our curriculum offer. Importantly we show what the impact on the student experience and development is and how this has been perceived in feedback.
