In my last post I mentioned that that while the hallways may be quiet in the summer, behind closed doors the Health and Wellness Research Centre remains active. So let us open the doors for a peak behind the scenes [...]
Not an imaginative title, but certainly accurate. This will be the first of a series of monthly blogs that will be published by the Office of Applied Research and Innovation. You will have a choice of at least five new blogs per month, one for each of our current four Research Centres and one from yours truly. The intent of the blogs is to inform, entertain, anger, encourage, advocate and stimulate the grey matter of the bloggers and readers. In this initial blog I will introduce you to the Applied Research Program at Algonquin College. [...]

Applied Research Expanding Its Borders
June 2013 marks the genesis of the Rural Economic Research and Development Centre (RERDC), a new “sister centre” to the Office of Applied Research and Innovation.
The RERDC is a joint initiative between the Perth and Pembroke campuses located in Renfrew County and Lanark County respectively, and supported by the resources of its main campus in Ottawa.[...]
New technology is going to let the construction industry do great things! The College has recently been awarded a significant funding grant to enhance our ability to conduct applied research projects in construction and building sciences. The Canadian Foundation for Innovation (CFI), a federal organization that helps institutions like Algonquin work with Industry to develop new technologies, is supporting us in our efforts to make our College a centre for cutting-edge research for the Construction Industry.[...]
With equal parts of fear and trepidation, I would await my turn and then before I was really ready the teacher would turn to me and ask “… and what did you do this summer”. Since joining the College to oversee the newly funded NSERC Health and Wellness Research Centre (launched January 30, 2013), I have been getting prepared to answer that question come this fall.[...]

Algonquin College, Applied Research and Innovation – Design Centre Blogpost #1 The Algonquin College Design Centre is focussed on engaging research projects focussed on User Experience (UX) design.

You’ll have to pardon my arrogance, seeing as we hardly know each other, but I’m going to make some assumptions about you dear reader. I’m going to assume you’re either interested or involved in the Algonquin College community in some way, seeing as you’re currently on the website. I’m going to assume that you have a particular skill set that has drawn you to post secondary education (and the Office of Applied Research and Innovatiom specifically), which is great. Whether that skill set is technical, design, or humanities based is inconsequential, you still have it, and that is fantastic. Finally[...]
Official Launch – Health and Wellness Research Centre
The Distinguished Speaker Series which took place on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 was an official launch of the Applied Research & Innovation’s new Health and Wellness Research Centre.
It displayed engaged, faculty and students in the emerging field of medical technology by bringing to campus inspirational leaders from around the globe. The event featured guest speaker Lane Desborough, Product Strategist Diabetes from Medtronic Inc., one of the world’s leading medical technology innovators. Lane spoke on the topic of “Technology and Innovation: Reducing the Burden of Diabetes”.
This was a very successful event and helped educate all who attended not only about the Heath and Wellness Research Centre but also displayed a more in-depth explanation of what the Applied Research & Innovation Department does to help today’s students with taking our learning system and advancing it that much further to an on-hands learning as well.
