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.

As an edited text, Self-determined Learning is extremely accessible and easy to read. This should not be taken to imply that it is overly simplistic, but rather the focus for the book is the exploration of a number of projects and learning interventions that have taken place in a variety of locations and times. There are chapters on postgraduate learning, learning through new technologies, workplace learning, action research and learner-centred learning, creativity, lifelong learning and early years, to name but a few.
