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.

This chapter describes how student teachers working in the Strathclyde Literacy Clinic “translate an experience of the landscape, both its practices and boundaries, into a meaningful moment of service (Wenger-Treyner et al 2015, p. 25). The Literacy Clinic is a collaborative learning project for student teachers undertaking the four-year BA in Education and Teaching at Strathclyde University. The project is designed to build student teachers’ fluency in real-time teaching responses in ways that provide a strong emotional and social dimension to their learning. They do not follow an externally-derived programme of work, but use an innovative assessment tool to collect data about the child’s cultural and social capital, identity as a reader, writer and learner, and cognitive knowledge and skills. Each team uses this to make decisions about the learning mix the child needs. The chapter details how the experience shapes their values, identity, understanding and practices as literacy teachers.
