Abstract

The higher education system in the UK has significantly changed over the last decade due to a growing emphasis on student learning activities, quality assurance procedures and research funding mechanisms. According to previous studies, there is no automatic link between research and teaching. Thus, the link needs to be created to enhance staff productivity and student learning. This paper reports findings of the first phase of a research study that aimed at developing guidelines on how to transfer research knowledge into teaching in higher education, In order to create such a productive relationship. The framework that is presented in this paper is developed for the built environment sector through a literature survey and an exploratory study. T he framework provides useful guidance for research-based higher education departments in the built environment to transfer research knowledge into teaching. The next phase of this research will explore the implementation of this model across different disciplines through a series of case studies.
