The link between Research and Teaching (R&T) has long been studied. Most studies conclude to say that there is no explicit link or automatic relationship between these two activities (Hattie & Marsh, 1996). Separate quality assurance mechanisms and imbalanced funding mechanisms lead to the trade-off between scholarly research and excellent teaching in higher education institutions. This problem could be addressed by exploring strategies to link research and teaching, in order to benefit each other. This proposal aims to take current research activities into this process further and, in particular, to test the implementation of the model developed as part of a previous project titled ReKnowiT-Phase I funded last year. School of Construction and Property Management (SCPM) will be selected for the model implementation. In attempting to replicate the findings and to extend the scope beyond the Built Environment, the proposed research further aims tot conduct three additional case studies within three different schools from different faculties of the University of Salford, aimed at developing and validating a more generic set of principles relating to the transfer of research knowledge into teaching.
