Research Informed Teaching: Resources

This space is dedicated to research informed teaching. Catalysed by the impact of COVID-19, blended learning; flipped classrooms; and research informed teaching is increasingly central to accessible and high quality learning environments. Therefore, I bring together all research related resources, papers, projects, data-sets, and related public engagement events published across my vlog in one place. This includes all my own research informed teaching, and resources published by other sources including authors and institutions. Primarily, resources span across tourism, events, leisure, management, and development studies.

Each resource linked to below includes a set of teaching materials to easily embed into teaching. Example materials include: 1) teaching slides, 2) 5-10 critical/debate questions for the classroom, 3) underpinning research article, 4) video lecture/introduction for the research paper, 5) example class exercises and active learning.

‘INSIDE EVENTS’ international podcast hosted by Mike

In addition to the materials below, Mike hosts an international podcast series speaking with authors of high quality research papers and projects about the detail and significance of their work.

Podcasts are between 20 – 60 minutes in length and come with a set of lecture slides and learning resources for students and teachers to use as part of synchronous and a-synchronous teaching. This supports a blended learning and a Research Informed Teaching approach exposing students to rigorous debate in events research.

To help our community access and easily use material, these resources are available open access and using creative commons license – free to use but users must attribute content to authors.
