Research inspires and is integrated into the UTS Model of Learning.
Exposure to research methods and outcomes provides students with the critical thinking, enquiry, creative and analytical capabilities that help them become life-long learners, essential in a professional environment that is continually transforming.
Teachers who bring their research to their teaching can inspire students with their enthusiasm. They can model ways in which knowledge is generated in the discipline and expose students to the range of research happening within the university.
Integrating research into teaching
Most UTS courses include disciplinary research skills: from searching and using literature to research methodologies, analytic techniques and research design. Many courses also involve students in active undergraduate research through capstone projects, research subjects with a project component or projects for community organisations. Depending on the discipline and project, research activities may include literature synthesis, design, inquiry, data collection and analysis, interpretation writing, presentation and creative production.
