Although it is currently well accepted that training for research is a component of all stages of education, its peak is naturally reached at the postgraduate level. Successful post-graduate education requires the guidance and mentoring of senior researchers and educators. Most university educators are also scientific researchers, and aligning innovations in education with scientific advances is a major concern to today's educators.

It is impossible not to ask ourselves how to cope with the role and impact of scientific research in teaching and learning. The researching, teaching and learning triangle explores a growing trend among top universities across the world to focus attention on the quality of post-graduate education and the success of the educators. In this book, we learn from pioneering examples, ranging from classroom-level initiatives to university-wide projects. This book will be of interest to all scientists, from the budding beginner to the seasoned supervisor.
