AbstractA strong research link is a crucial quality factor in higher education. This paper describes the process of implementing a peer-tutoring activity to strengthen this link. It also evaluates and discusses the effects of this activity on student learning from a student perspective and a teacher perspective. The results indicate that this implementation was a time-efficient way of studying and understanding scientific research articles and thus strengthening the link between research and education.
