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

It is well known that the Scottish and English Education systems are different. I am writing this one week before the Scottish Referendum – whatever the outcome, the Scottish Education system will maintain its distinctiveness. This paper will explore some of the differences between the two systems and examine whether or not they are significant in science teacher education and what the implications of these differences may be. One example of difference is that in Scotland, we refer to Initial Teacher Education (ITE) rather than Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in England. Whether or not this indicates a wider approach to teacher education in Scotland rather than teacher training in England is another question.
