Research-Teaching Links in the Physical Sciences: Politics and Practice

Wednesday 18th March 2009,
The Reinvention Centre,
University of Warwick

Undergraduate Research and the Research Teaching Link are currently hot topics. Autumn 2008 saw the publication of three major reports, from the Scottish QAA and from Professors Nigel Thrift and Paul Ramsden to the Minister, John Denham, that provide a clear political framework for 2009 onwards.

Lynda Thrift will introduce the event and Paul Taylor will talk about the work of the reinvention Centre at the University of Warwick. Tina Overton, Physical Sciences Centre, Ros Roke, University of Warwick and Simon Bates, University of Edinburgh, will discuss the impact of these reports.

The full programme is available on the website:

There is no registration fee for this meeting for those working in UK HE and lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Case studies will be presented that highlight what is actually happening in Physical Science Departments around the country. If you would like to contribute a 10 minute case study presentation to the workshop, please contact Ruth Wellock, r.wellock - at -, with details of what you would like to present.
