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.

Arguing for a fresh look at theory- lecture based courses in architecture and how 'people-environments' paradigm is introduced in lecture based courses in architecture, this paper outlines the implementation of a number of 'in-class and out of-class' tools utilized as exercises that foster active learning in classroom settings. The exercises involve individual work and class discussion. They range from 10 minutes to the whole class session and address issues that examine and translate students understanding of the topics introduced, including relating culture to architecture, recognizing building types, developing responses to different environmental settings, and understanding building images. The results of conducting these exercises corroborate that 'people-environments' paradigm can be introduced through active learning which invigorated students understanding of the topics, sensitized them into the understanding of course objectives, while creating excitement in the classroom.
