DesignScript: Scalable Tools for Design Computation
Design computation based on data flow graph diagramming is a well-established technique. The intention of DesignScript is to recognise this type of data flow modeling as a form of ?associative? programming and to combine this with the more conventional ?imperative? form of programming into a single unified computational design application. The use of this application is intended to range from very simple graph based exploratory ?proto-programming? as used by novice end-user programmers to multi-
An Electronic Design Assistance Tool for Case Based Representation of Designs
In precedent based design, solutions to problems are developed by drawing from an understanding of landmark designs. Many of the key design operations in this mode are similar to the functionalities present in case based reasoning systems: case matching, case adapting, and case representation. It is clear that a rich case base, encoding all major product types in a design domain would be the centerpiece of such an approach. EDAT (Electronic Design Assistance Tool) is intended to assist in preced
Lawrence Bailey - Market Research Valedictory Lecture
Colleagues from both academia and business were present on 27 January 2011 for Lawrence Bailey's guest lecture on Market Segmentation, Qualitative Research and Conversations Across the Garden Wall. The garden wall of the lecture's title was Lawrence's metaphor for the potential divide between the two sectors. The lecture reflected Lawrence's career-long wish to get qualitative researchers in the commercial world to talk to their counterparts in the academic world, and vice versa. He discusse
(R&DA 1) Creative Teachers for Creative Learners
This research and development award aimed to support the development of primary trainees teachers’ understanding of – and teaching for - children’s creativity by producing an interactive bank of teaching and learning materials set within a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). It was found that, at the beginning of their programme, primary teacher trainees had a narrow, arts-based view of creativity. This could be challenged by focussed observation of classroom practice using a framework ada

Gifted Arts programmes
Gifted Arts programmes How can the preconcieved ideas of 'giftedness' be challenged through the use of 'take one picture' work in PSHE? The National Gallery is the take one picture work I am refering to and it is for Primary age children. As for the preconcieved ideas of 'giftedness', I refer to this as being the 'preordained' top 10% of pupils that are consitantly present in a classroom and whether or not the approach used by the National Gallery keeps these children in their 'niche' at the to
Study support Attainment
Study support Attainment I am currently looking into whether or not school clubs/study support raise attainment in schools. I have searched the TTRB site, but have found nothing relating to this topic. I have found a couple of articles on the TES, Guardian and BBC websties, but no references to formal journal articles, books or documents, which would back up my thinking. I am looking specifically at KS3 and KS4. I will be focusing on sport and the performing arts.
Teacher placement Collaboration
Teacher placement Collaboration I am interested in learning more about research into how trainee teachers collaborate with each other whilst on placement in different schools. It may be that some teacher educators have used a Virtual Learning Environment to facilitate this. Any suggestions? This is related to another question: how do we encourage creativity in our trainees? so maybe the question should be: what research is there into collaborative creativity amongst beginning teachers?
