Research informed teaching (RIT) needs to be integrated into the practice of academics in higher education. This article draws on an extensive literature review and case studies from 2005 to 2015 to distil strategies for implementing RIT. It proposes 35 surprisingly simple, granular strategies for designing RIT into the curriculum at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. RIT is complex but vital for engaging students in contemporary theory and research methods, and enriching pedagogy. With the Teaching Excellence Framework on the horizon, research informed teaching is a vital approach for building up excellent learning environments which link teaching and research.
