Research-based Teaching in Higher Level Chemistry Education

Goedhart, M. J., Finlayson, O. E. and Lindblom-Ylanne, S. (2009) Research-based Teaching in Higher Level Chemistry Education. In: Innovative Methods of Teaching and Learning Chemistry in Higher Education. UNSPECIFIED, pp. 63-85.


Many graduates from science programmes move on to higher research degrees (MSc., Ph.D) or pursue research careers in industry or research centres. This chapter addresses whether undergraduate programmes in chemistry adequately prepare graduates for such research and examines the relationship between teaching and research. Finally specific examples are given which show how undergraduate students can become engaged in research and research-like activities.
