AbstractThe present paper discusses benefits and challenges of implementing classes with a focus on research-based learning (Healey 2005) into the linguistics curriculum. Having sketched relevant connections between research, teaching and learning, a concrete illustration of the approach in the context of applied linguistics is discussed. Strengths and weaknesses of the implementation are assessed and implications for curricular improvement are considered.
