In recent years, a gradual transition from passive teaching to active learning has intensified in higher education. Critical thinking and deep learning is promoted, as opposed to surface learning. The Teaching Excellence Framework guidance for higher education associates learning with research, thus research skills acquisition is fundamental. An innovative collaborative research project, leading to individually composed assignments, was implemented in a research methodology module, aiming at developing an undergraduate research skill set and writing performance. The results were satisfactory showing positive student response to the newly implemented approach. Critical thinking, deep learning, autonomy, peer-support and collaboration are mostly what the undergraduate students can benefited from, through this innovative learning approach.
