About this book


Although it is currently well accepted that training for research is a component of all  stages of education, its peak is naturally reached at the  postgraduate level. Successful post-graduate education requires the guidance and mentoring of senior researchers and educators.  Most university educators are also scientific researchers, and aligning innovations in education with scientific advances is a major concern to today's educators.

It is impossible not to ask ourselves how to cope with the role and impact of scientific research in teaching and learning. <i>The researching, teaching and learning triangle</i> explores a growing trend among top universities across the world to focus attention on the quality of post-graduate education and the success of the educators. In this book, we learn from pioneering examples, ranging from classroom-level initiatives to university-wide projects.  This book will be of interest to all scientists, from the budding beginner to the seasoned supervisor.
