Tips on Research-Informed Teaching: Videos by the Centre for Teaching & Learning
Featuring IIMB faculty members, this initiative of the Centre for Teaching and Learning at IIMB is an attempt to capture how research can be integrated into teaching and the ways research and teaching complement each other.
The videos are crisp and loaded with valuable input for academics who believe in the power and relevance of research for informed and impactful teaching.

In this video, Dr. Varun Jindal talks about linking one’s research into their teaching. He starts by exploring the ‘why’ part, which is largely based on his personal experience in the classroom. He proceeds to say that integration of his research in his teaching has helped him as an instructor because that (i) boosted his confidence level as he taught his own findings and not someone else’s, (ii) enabled him to handle questions from students in a more confident manner, and (iii) required a much lesser time in preparation for teaching in the classroom. Additionally, Prof. Jindal thinks that discussing and teaching one’s own research repeatedly in class often makes way for a related, but new idea for future research.
