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

In recent years, there has been a growing body of literature investigating metacognition in second language (L2) listening. The theoretical underpinning of the majority of these studies is that metacognition and listening are individual psychological processes. This paper contributed to the existing body of literature by positioning metacognition in L2 listening from a sociocultural and dialogical perspective. The study provided empirical evidence with regard to the ways in which L2 learners co-construct and negotiate shared understanding in the listening process.
