Validation of On Street Parking

In 2016, tests were carried out in Guildford to identify car parking spaces using a mobile sonar sensor mounted on the nearside of a test vehicle which collects data as it moves around the location. The data collected is sent over a cellular link to a web based database which includes maps with known parking areas. The spaces are identified and can be made available to road users via an App. The vehicle location was determined from a GPS receiver combined with map matching. To determine the accuracy, ground truth is provided by a camera mounted on the test vehicle.

What is a reading list for?

Reading lists are, and seemingly always have been, an integral part of learning and teaching in Higher Education. Whilst almost every other aspect of teaching and learning has been re-examined and re-interpreted through various pedagogic lenses, reading list practice seems to have quietly gone on in more or less the same form as it always has. There is value in consistency but there is also a danger that, in staying the same while all else changed, reading lists have become detached from contemporary pedagogic practice and are drifting into insignificance. This guide asks the question ‘What is a reading list for?’ and, using Constructive Alignment as a guide, seeks to draw reading lists back into the heart of modern teaching practice.

Manx Customary Laws

This document, catalogued in the Manx Museum as "Customary Lawes" appears to be the document referred to by Deemster Parr in the sidenotes to his Abstract. Certainly, the paragraph numbers tally with the references in those sidenotes. Accordingly, this document is included as an additional source for use with Deemster Parr's Abstract, also part of this collection

Deemster Parr's Abstract

Deemster John Parr's Abstract of Manx laws is an important source of Manx law dating from the late seventeenth century. It is also of more than passing interest to scholars of the legal history of the larger jurisdictions surrounding the Isle of Man. Although available in manuscript form in the Manx Museum, this document has never been published. This typescript was prepared and checked by Peter Edge from MS 03176 C.

for her

'for her' is a piano performance with additional elements conceived to raise awareness about child trafficking and sexual exploitation. The work presents three structural elements: piano performance, testimonies, and dolls scattered among the audience. In order to open additional channels of perception, the “defamiliarization” technique was explored through the visual element of placed dolls. Results from experimental performances raised questions about the unity of the work, strategies to enhance engagement and the performer figure. This work intends to encourage an investigation of the sensorial impact of the blending of varied elements within the performance space, whilst simultaneously inviting a social reflection through an artistic experience. The final version of the project was performed in Oxford, UK (07/06/2015, 23/07/2015), Aveiro, Portugal (11/06/2015) and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (03/09/2015).

myths and visions

An extended piano performance, a journey to imaginary worlds and images. myths & visions – a piano (& body) performance was conceived as Késia Decoté’s PhD final show. It explores the choreographic potential of the pianist’s gestures in a programme of works for piano extended techniques, which were also inspired by myths, imaginary landscapes and illusions. It combines piano performance with elements of dance, and the spectator/participant is led to walk through specific journeys within the experience of the performance, as an invitation for an alternative and more embodied experience of classical music.

casa – reflections on house & home

‘[The house] is the human being’s first world’. (G. Bachelard). A piano recital inspired by the readings of Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space, his reflections about the house, how it shelters and shapes our memories, thoughts and dreams. As an organic consequence of the dynamics and questions raised during the creative process, this project turned to be an invitation to a journey through memories and intimacy. It became an autobiographical work, with the intention that, hopefully it can resonate to one’s own memories and reflections from their ‘houses’ and/ or ‘homes’. Element of research: the space of performance – multiple pianos, objects (music boxes, wardrobe, photos, recordings), portable lighting (home lamps), moving performer, and moving audience (no audience seats provided).

Graduate attributes project evaluation

This data informed an evaluation of a three-year programme of work to evaluate the impact of the specification of the Brookes Graduate Attributes in the Strategy for Enhancing the Student Experience (2010-2015), and their adoption within programmes of study at Oxford Brookes University. The evaluation assessed how programme teams have expressed each of the attributes within programme learning outcomes. A team from OCSLD and faculties collected reflections on the implementation process and conducted an interpretative analysis of programme learning outcomes in 90 undergraduate Programme Specifications revised after the mapping process during 2011/12. Our interest was in how the graduate attributes were interpreted by staff, particularly within the context of their discipline.
