Research output​

​​In response to the University’s vision of excellence, the Faculty is committed to the implementation of initiatives that will enable research development and the encouragement of creative production as integral aspects of its strategic plan. The FADA Gallery adopted a multidimensional underlying rationale to viewing the gallery not only as a venue for acknowledging and celebrating creative work, but as a pedagogic and research resource.​

Research capacity building initiatives included the funding of teaching substitutes; mentoring to assist members staff write articles and papers; a staff research seminar programme; and a series of lectures on research methodology.

The Faculty Research Newsletter, under the editorial guidance of Prof Brenda Schmahmann, was once again published in digital format, with a range of contributions from academic staff focusing on their current and ongoing research. Entitled Research as Practice

The Creative Teaching and Learning Forum established at the close of 2008 has as one of its goals the development of a scholarship of teaching within the Faculty and the generation of research outputs around the theme of teaching practice in the creative disciplines.

See below for further detail about specific research output for the Faculty:
