Many academics, including distinguished geographers, believe in the close interdependence of teaching - and discipline - based research. However, much of the considerable international research evidence questions this close positive relationship. This research is analysed and then more recent research reviewed which suggests that there can be productive relationships between staff research and teaching, if teaching and research are conceptualised in ways that enable them to be effectively linked, and if staff research is 'managed' to benefit student learning. Hence, geographers should design courses and organise teaching and research to ensure that students benefit from (staff) research. Also, as a disciplinary community we should research the nature of teaching - research relationships in the discipline and the impact of our practices and policies.
