Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

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

In this article I describe how a multiple perspectives framework drawn from the field of social work informed my analysis of interview data obtained from Australian preservice teachers who had gone on an international study trip. One incident recounted differently by three separate interviewees meant that the sometimes-similar and sometimescontradictory ‘tellings’ provided multiple perspectives of a particular incident in relation to one case study participant. These perspectives made possible a variety of readings of the incident and also facilitated greater insight into the nature of the relationships between the participants. I suggest that multiple perspectives research, with its emphasis on relationships, could be useful to education research that aims to present detailed finegrained study of the complexities of lived experience. It offers researchers systematic ways to compare and contrast different perspectives, to identify silences and to build rich and thick descriptions of people in and of social contexts.
