Perspectives on research-based teaching and learning at university

One of the key strategic choices for the 2021–2030 strategy period of the University of Helsinki is: Knowledge and learning are for everyone. The strong connection between research and teaching is an integral part of this choice and at the core of our activities and our very existence. The strong connection between research and teaching is reflected in a variety of ways in our day-to-day operations. But what is the connection between research and teaching really about? What does it mean for student learning and the development of expertise? And how is the connection between research and teaching reflected in the teaching, guidance and supervision provided by teachers? Should it be managed systematically at the University, and if so, how?

During the 2022–2023 academic year, the University of Helsinki Teachers’ Academy and the Centre for University Teaching and Learning (HYPE) will organise a series of events on the connection between research and teaching, entitled ‘Perspectives on research-based teaching and learning at university’. The multilingual events will include talks by Finnish and international experts and various workshop activities. Hear what others have to say and join the conversation!
