Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Concerning the successful business competence, strategic planning should be enhanced considering assets availability by involving maintenance and reliability operational aspects. The INCASS (Inspection Capabilities for Enhanced Ship Safety) FP7 EU funded research project aims to tackle the issue of ship inspection, identification of high-risk ships, providing access to information related to ship surveys and incorporate enhanced and harmonized cooperation of maritime stakeholders in order to avoid ship accidents, promote maritime safety and protect the environment. The current research consists of machinery and equipment specifications and stakeholders’ data requirements. Focusing on the methodology perspective, a Machinery Risk Analysis (MRA) model is introduced. All progress and methodology development takes place in Java programm ing language. Overall, the outcomes of this study demonstrate the reliability performance of marine machinery components. Future development include dynamic failure rate variation through time, probabilistic model’s sensitivity analysis and components’ and systems’ interdependencies in a user-friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) design.
