In research-based learning, students deal independently with current research topics related to their subjects. They investigate relevant questions using scientific methods, and evaluate and prepare the results. Researching and learning become one.
In a nutshell: What Constitutes Research-Based Learning?
Research-based learning is the link between research and teaching at a university. The focus is not on academic knowledge, but on action competence; distinct phases of the research process, in which students help to shape, experience and reflect, are essential elements and motivators.
In research-based learning, students generate their own cognition and question it. They develop the goals of their research project themselves and formulate their hypotheses. They choose their methods—with guidance and support from the teacher—and apply them to the respective inquiry. The focus is on findings that could also be relevant for third parties.
