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

Self-generated exam activity was implemented in 2nd year undergraduate students of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering degree to promote engagement. The activity was demonstrated to be effective regarding enhancement of learning outcomes through the promotion of deep learning, and partnership through cooperative and collaborative work. Results indicated that ~80% of the students engaged with the activity and were satisfied with the learning outcomes. In general students (>80%) perceived themselves as co-creators and co-owners of the self-generated exam. Results also showed that academic staff encouragement and motivation affects students’ co-creation and that students are satisfied when involved in their learning process
