Abstract

This paper describes and evaluates an undergraduate project in which the interaction between teaching and research functions proved beneficial to both. The project initially involved undergraduate students in a major detailed questionnaire survey of shopping preferences in Cardiff. We found that we were able to extend the scope of the undergraduate project whilst simultaneously helping to fulfil a research function more effectively. We attempt to evaluate the pedagogic merits of this exercise, and seek to identify some broader prescriptions for integrating teaching and research.
