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

This chapter considers transition to school as a joint enterprise shared by the teacher, children and parents. School start is no longer the first educational transition children experience: taking account of the variety of experiences, people and environments children will have already encountered, means effective communication between all involved. Two illustrative cameos highlight similarities and differences between children’s early childhood journeys and consider implications for each of the transitions they make. A case is made for the usefulness of theories as tools to help this transitions process, bringing a particular focus to children's agency, parental engagement and teacher collaboration.
