This article reviews a study undertaken by the authors exploring history lecturers' conceptions of progress within history. The authors conclude that their are intrinsic links between transformative research views and transformative teaching approaches. Whilst this article doesn't provide actual case studies of practice it is useful for stressing the value of being a research-active lecturer.
