LEARNING TO RESEARCH AND PUBLISH FROM YOUR TEACHING: CASE STUDY EXAMPLES FROM NEW ZEALAND

A. Gibbs

University of Otago (NEW ZEALAND)
Several challenges occur in higher education when it comes to the research - teaching nexus and to the teaching - research linkage. One challenge is for educators to ensure that their research reaches the classroom and that learners benefit from up to date knowledge in the courses they are taking. This can be overcome by ensuring that course educators are active researchers in the areas they are teaching. A second issue is that of time pressure and the need for ongoing publication by educators and researchers whom also have large teaching responsibilities yet at the same time their employment depends on quality research-based outputs. To overcome this second issue the presenter has engaged in a number of course and teaching related projects which have led to publications. This presentation will out several case studies from social work education and research on criminal justice topics that primarily resulted in publications via the teaching to research link, rather than research to publication or research to teaching link. The aim of the presentation is to demonstrate that one does not have to engineer large research projects to get published (important as these are). This is especially useful for educators who teach primarily in profession domains, e.g. social work, teaching, nursing, or occupational therapy.
