Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

Abstract

Two independently important but not previously juxtaposed nor jointly interrogated topics are brought together in this paper: the design and organisation of early childhood transitions between sectors, in particular from preschool to elementary education, and the integration of this theme in the training and qualifications of educators in their (University) programme of study. Key elements and drivers of transitions experience that should be included in the training of educators are identified and it is proposed that their inclusion will benefit a continuous process in young children’s education: it is shown that such integration is underway in Scottish early educators’ programmes of study.
