With the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) rapidly taking shape one area in which universities may be able to demonstrate teaching excellence is in the area of Research-Informed Teaching (RIT). To discover more about this area the University Alliance held a workshop on September 20th 2016. Examples of RIT in the forms of research-led, research-oriented, research-tutored and research-based were explored and the contribution that RIT can make towards supporting excellence across both research and teaching were discussed. A booklet from the day that showcases a number of different forms RLT, including a case study from University of Portsmouth Professor Sherria Hoskins, can be found HERE. A further blog post about the event from the University Alliance is also available: www.unialliance.ac.uk/RITblog.
