Visit the Royal Agricultural University website. The Royal Agricultural University RAU is the oldest agricultural college in the English-speaking world, but also the newest, gaining university title in ; until it was outside the public sector. The RAU was founded with the express aim of delivering what is now termed translational research in a period of rapid scientific and technological developments. Increased size and natural turnover has enabled growth in academic staff during the latter part of this period, allowing realisation of the strategic plan to recruit research active staff to increase research capacity.
Growth and level of research activity needs to be set within this transition. Historically the focus has been on teaching but research is also core to the mission, growth and development of the university. With access to over 50 academic and research staff, University farms and research facilities, the Royal Agricultural University carries out an active programme of UK and international research. We are experienced in providing the right expertise and skills, including working in association with other national and international academic and research centres. The RAU has a strategy of employing research active staff who can engage with stakeholders to identify research needs and exchange knowledge.
They exploit funding opportunities and deliver research outputs to the widest audience through publications, conference presentations, organised conferences and seminars hosted on campus, and visits to stakeholder groups in their own locations. Our Annual Report documents a wide range of such dissemination activities. Sustainable Agriculture, Food and Rural Economy. The Sustainable Agriculture, Food and Rural Economy research group is based mainly in the School of Agriculture and Food but may involve staff from other Schools; its rationale is to promote higher yield and quality food within sustainable agricultural production and social systems.
Research is carried out on our own farms at Harnhill and Coates LINK to farms pages and on neighbouring farms as appropriate. The Rural Innovation Centre at Harnhill provides on-farm facilities for research projects. Equine Research Group. It has a bespoke research barn which can be configured as separate loose boxes or as a communal American Barn facility. This enables efficient comparisons to be drawn between various management systems whilst controlling for environmental variation.
There is a horse walker for standardised exercise regimens often utilised in feeding trails. For medium to maximal exercise testing a 1km long bark chipping track is usable in all weather conditions. The most recent addition is a 60 x 30 M outdoor arena featuring a Martin Collins Ecotrack. This facility is well set up for gait analysis due to the recent purchase of a high speed camera and Quintic video analysis suite. Due to the high fencing and flat surrounding terrain distal cues can be minimised. There are also laboratories on campus for DNA, dissections and analytical work.
Introduction to The Elementary Education Act of 1870
A research impact case study on Horse Nutrition is attached. We are particularly interested in the aesthetics and uses of technologies which have relevance to the Creative Industries. We are committed to improving the affordances of emerging technologies, and particularly foreground knowledge exchange between industry and the Academy. Researchers at Ravensbourne are likely to draw from ethnography, creative methods, action research, textual analysis, and production and audience studies.
We are as likely to work with large organisations Barclays, Marks and Spencer, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the BBC as with Small to Medium-sized Enterprises who may be more associated with newer economic structures and production ecologies. We are also involved in policy-making and standard-setting. Our researchers specialize in media production and technology including stereoscopic 3-D and Broadcast Engineering , emerging design practices such as 3D printing, wearable futures, and learning and teaching use of mobile platforms.
We are particularly interested in exploring the blending of design with technology, and in inter-disciplinary working. We are becoming known for our international conferences which draw researchers and industry together to explore emerging fields. Our annual conference in 3-D film and television was the first large-scale event in the UK to foreground stereoscopy. Research produced by NUA staff, students and collaborators interrogates the contexts in which art, design and media are produced, understood, used, exchanged and sustained, setting out to challenge conventions, provide new insights and develop original applications.
Their outcomes provide audiences with access to creative disciplines, innovative practices and cultural heritage. Cultural and Political Narratives NUA research into cultural and political narratives questions the interpretation and representation of contested creative and material practices, focusing on the cultural and political networks in which art, design and media are produced, valued and consumed.
Through contemporary and historical approaches engaging both practice and criticism, work developed in this area pioneers understandings of the complex circumstances underlying creative and cultural practices and forms of communication. From curating major exhibitions for international museums, to developing new forms of literary criticism and representation and preparing major scholarly contributions, research in this area has engaged diverse audiences in Europe, Australia, the Middle East and US.
Digital and Physical Interactions NUA research into digital and physical interactions investigates attitudes and approaches to the understanding of complex phenomena underpinning human cognition, behavior and experience. Through cross-disciplinary research engaging expertise in the physical sciences, work developed in this area expands knowledge and awareness of human processes such as vision, memory, navigation and reproduction. From producing city-wide navigable digital interventions, to investigating eye movement and reading, and creating audio-visual installations to explore attitudes towards birth, memory and medical imaging, research in this area has been installed, exhibited, performed and distributed through galleries, clinical research centres and public events in the UK, Europe, Asia, Australia, North and South America.
Through creative and theoretical practice, work developed in this area advances knowledge of human and cultural activities in areas such as design, architecture, pedagogy, museum and project learning, and textiles. Staff — in particular early career staff — and student research projects have been constructed in unique contexts, embedded in cultural organisations: from examining environmental frameworks for museum learning and live projects, to exploring cultural and historical attitudes to design.

Harry Potter. Popular Features. New Releases. Description This book explores the changing patterns of higher education in England in the twentieth century, the types of institutions and the emergence of a 'system' of education.
At the same time it traces the relationship between the writer-advocates of higher education and the changing world of higher education and its contexts. There is therefore an interrelated story of higher education, the writers, their messages, their backgrounds and ideologies, the audiences they intend to address, and the impacts of the state and other external forces. It is likely to appeal to higher education academics and administrators, politicians and other policy makers, staff and students on higher degree and professional programmes.
