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 presentation describes a student-led project where student interns worked as partners with academic development staff to co-design and produce a staff development programme to support academic staff in supporting students in their first year transition into university. The aims of the project were to, • explore the effectiveness of student partnership working in a staff development context; and • produce sustainable training that encourages staff-student communication and creates sustainable social integration in first year classes The training was developed for both face-to-face and online delivery, and a story-telling approach was successfully used to enhance staff engagement. A toolkit of resources (including a video-based case study that threads throughout the course) was produced, allowing the programme to be replicated across the sector. This presentation will be of interest to academic staff interested in exploring student partnership working as well as staff seeking training provision to support staff in supporting the first year student transition into university. Key elements of the toolkit will be demonstrated and discussion will include successes, challenges and lessons learned.
