Integrating Learning, Research and Teaching at the University of Sheffield

LRT Project Logo


The LRT Project

This research project will find ways of strengthening the relationship between learning, research, and teaching at the university. At its heart is the idea that there are big benefits to both research and teaching when the two are fully integrated.

At first the project will find and examine examples of how learning, research, and teaching are currently integrated, concentrating on the Faculties of Science and Social Sciences.

The project aims to spark new thinking about the relationship between learning, research, and teaching and to make a difference to the student and staff experience.

The LRT Project is a SeeChange project funded by CILASS, LeTS, and the Faculties of Science and Social Sciences.
