Research and Teaching Workshop


One of the most important aspects of a law lecturer’s professional life is to publish. Too often, publishing is seen as being in competition with teaching. One is set up as a challenge to the other. This workshop introduced us to the idea that research and teaching must accompany one another: for one to be successful, the other must also be pursued. This workshop covered topics such as:

  • Clarifying and differentiating between different ways in which the research and teaching nexus can operate

  • Discussing inquiry-based learning as a way of developing a research-minded orientation to students

  • Introducing the idea and practice of evidence-based teaching

  • Discussing writing about and publishing on our teaching-related research.

  • Inviting staff members to give examples of inquiry-based learning and research that they have conducted on their teaching

This was an excellent workshop that covered issues which are important to every lecturer at every university, anywhere in the world. It has helped me to see teaching in and of itself as an opportunity to extend my research interests.



  Havel, cited in Rowland:

“The intellectual should constantly disturb, should bear witness to the misery of the world, should be provocative by being independent, should rebel against all hidden and open pressure and manipulations, should be the chief doubter of systems, of power and its incantations, should be a witness to their mendacity”
