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.

There remains much debate about the features of initial teacher education (ITE) programmes that will produce effective professionals, able to exercise the agency and values that promote flexible, adaptive self-expanding and evidenced-informed professional knowledge. There is particular concern about how to develop teachers who understand inclusion, social disadvantage and who can deliver educational equity through their teaching. Research reviews have drawn attention to the design principles and organisation of ITE programmes that develop knowledgeable, effective and reflective practitioners. The most convincing research approaches use impact evidence to identify those programmes that produce effective teachers and analyse their features (see for example Darling Hammond 2012). From such analyses we have learned that there can be many pathways to successful outcomes, but that the quality of opportunities to make sense of placement experiences and apply academic knowledge is important.
