Improving the quality of teaching and learning in higher education is a current objective in the academic discourse in both Germany and South Africa. Research-based learning (RBL) is meant to be an effective approach towards enhancing students' academic capability. This article illustrates how RBL could be explored in order to contribute to the quality objective in higher education. It aims to answer the following questions: What is RBL about? What is an appropriate organisational structure for RBL activities? What are the guiding principles of linking research activities with academic teaching and learning? How can the RBL approach affect students' performance, motivation and learning success?
