Project Outputs

This project’s objectives were:

  1. To conduct a literature review on the teaching-research nexus and the significance of discipline and context to it. Draft version for downloading, below.
  2. To conduct new empirical work in contrasting institutional settings among four different disciplines/domains, providing new data on the differences between the conceptualisation, understanding and development of research-LTAC linkages. Different settings within the University of Arts London have been selected and the focus of this project is on four different creative arts disciplines: fine art; graphic design; fashion product design and theatre production. Details included in the final project report are available below, including a report of empirical findings and a consideration of their implications for the enhancement of LTAC in the selected disciplines.

The outcomes of the project are designed to provide a well-theorised and empirically researched basis for future work on research, LTAC practices and the student experience.
