The Research Teaching Linkages Enhancement Theme started in 2006. It considered the links between discipline-based research activities and the student learning experience. The main focus was on programme teams and how they can support students to achieve research-type graduate attributes.


The aims of the Theme was to:

  • identify, share and build on good and innovative practice in utilising research-teaching linkages
  • develop the achievement of 'research-type' attributes,
  • support students so they understand the purpose of achieving 'research-type' attributes.

The Theme produced a range of resources throughout its lifetime. This includes disciplinary reports across nine areas, sector-wide reports and institutional case studies.
