Keywords:Key Words: research leadership, research mind-set, research institutions
AbstractThe Royal University of Bhutan having evolved from a traditional teaching-learning institution is challenged in changing the mind-set and working practices of its academics when it involves research, innovation, and the use of knowledge. This paper looks at the initiatives pursued by the University in contributing to enhanced research culture through desktop research. Evidences indicate that support mechanisms like institutions, policies and guidelines, quality staff development, capacity building initiatives, international relations, and quality curriculum are the driving forces to improve research culture within the University. The University has made a breakthrough in changing the mind-set and working practices of its academics by engaging in research activities in a predominantly undergraduate teaching-learning University. The paper also discusses opportunities and challenges of enhancing research and innovations in the University.
