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 presentation members of the Scottish POET team will present the Scottish country project ‘Transitions as a Tool for Change’. There are three main strands to this project: Professional Beliefs and Practices, Family Engagement and Children’s Learning Journeys. Two associated projects will be presented: Dr Helen Marwick will share planned project work with the very youngest children and insights from the transitions element of our Positive Behaviour precedent project, as part of our Learning Journeys s trand and Dr Rob Mark will present “From early learning to later life learning: Childre n and adults learning together” : a study being undertaken by Strathclyde's Learning in Later Life Student Research Group which is part of our family engagement strand an d will look at how children's learning can be enhanced by older adults and how older adults can learn from children through inter - generational learning, as well as looking at why so few men are involved in inter - generational learning and how this issue mig ht be addressed.
