Research benefits teaching and students' learning experiences. Research-informed teaching (RiT) takes different forms and has become a common practice in higher education. In the fast changing society of the 21st century, keeping abreast of up-to-date knowledge and trends is key to success in the field of education. Through research design, data collection and analysis, findings discussion and presentation, RiT engages teachers and students in systematic inquiry activities in the learning and teaching process. The process of doing research not only enrich learning and teaching strategies, but also builds important transferable skills that are useful for education articulation and subsequent career development both in the academic and work environment .
