About this book

This book describes lessons learned from the implementation of research based learning at Maastricht University. Well-known for its problem based learning (PBL) educational model, Maastricht University implemented research-based learning (RBL) as a new educational concept in addition to PBL, around 2009. The model has taken the shape of an excellence programme offering third-year bachelor students an opportunity to conduct academic research together with academic staff. The introduction of the research-based learning concept into the programmes of all Maastricht University’s faculties has resulted in a range of RBL models that vary to fit the various disciplines and programmes offered by the faculties. The book first presents theoretical models and a description of the concepts of research-based learning and undergraduate research (UGR). Next, by means of case studies, it describes the formulas developed to suit the various programmes, the challenges encountered, the initial reservations on the part of the staff, the limitations caused by regulations and demands of the curricula, as well as the successes and results of the excellence programme. The disciplines described in the case studies include psychology and neuroscience, knowledge engineering, social and cultural sciences, law, and business and economics.

 

Reviews

“Research-Based Learning: Case Studies from Maastricht University, edited by Ellen Bastiaens, Jonathan van Tilburg, and Jeroen van Merriënboer, introduces the university’s honors program in research-based learning (RBL) … . This volume provides an invaluable introduction for educators and administrators interested in the implementation of institutional, departmental, and faculty-led RBL initiatives. The book also includes an appendix that lists many of the students’ publications and other special achievements.” (Susan Berry Brill de Ramírez, Scholarship and Practice of Undergraduate Research, Vol. 1 (1), 2017)
