Although much is known about the nature and importance of Research Informed Teaching (RIT), we know very little about its impact on teaching practice and students' learning. To redress this gap, we explore how RIT is conceptualised and practiced by academics and what impact, if any, RIT has on teachers and students. Through semi-structured interviews with 20 research-active teachers in Solent, we empirically reveal a range of innovative teaching practices and outcomes of RIT. In particular, our data also show a reverse-impact, where teaching also informs research (TIR) in meaningful ways. We discuss implications for HE provision in this presentation.
