Event: Research-led teaching: Defining and celebrating a tradition

Wed 26th February 2020

Research-led teaching (RLT) is supposedly definitional of higher education, and yet research and teaching are often treated as conflicting demands upon staff time.  How can we pursue these practices in an integrated and authentic way?  How can we explain to senior managers, prospective students and their parents – and actual students – what the value of RLT is for learners and teachers alike?

Featuring speakers from Kent and further afield (China, Australia, Wales) this conference will equip attendees to develop and articulate research-led teaching in their professional practice.

Attendance is free.  You are welcome to come for all or part of the day.  Please sign up by Friday 31 January to indicate which aspects of hospitality you are likely to require (tea breaks, lunch, closing reception) so that we have a reasonable sense of numbers for catering purposes.  (However, if you make a last-minute decision to attend, that’s fine.)


  • Date: Wednesday 26 February (week 19/reading week at Kent)
  • Time: 10:00-17:00
    • 10:00-13:00 in Keynes Lecture Theatre 2
    • 14:00-17:00 in Grimond Lecture Theatre 3
    • lunch in Aphra Foyer 13:00-14:00
  • Details: check the conference website for the latest news and details/timings of papers so you can drop in and out


We look forward to seeing you there.
