Authors: A. Verburgh and J. Elen
Abstract: The integration of research into teaching is generally assumed to be beneficial for student learning. However, empirical evidence of such an advantageous link is limited.
This study links the experienced research integration on the one hand with the appreciation of research aspects in the learning environment on the other. The impact of this appreciation is studied in relation to four other variables (discipline, year of study, awareness of research at the university, and awareness of research by the own lecturers).
The study shows that experienced research integration has a positive impact on the appreciation of research aspects within the learning environment. Hierarchical regression also shows a unique contribution of both kinds of awareness of research activity, of discipline and of the year of study.
