A wide variety of studies has been carried out regarding the way academics view the research-teaching nexus, while other studies have focused on the students' experience of research-intensive environments. This study links these two research streams, and describes how 12 staff members in a faculty of humanities integrate research into their teaching, and how their students perceive these learning environments. Data were gathered from both teachers and students. The 12 teachers opted for different ways of integrating disciplinary research into their teaching. The study produced some unexpected benefits, as the attained learning environment yielded more and other outcomes than intended. It was possible to attribute dispositional learning outcomes to students bringing the academic disposition into practice, and discussing their efforts with their teachers, while awareness of research increased as a result of getting a close look at the teacher's own research.
