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.

Abstract

Lifelong Learning Participation in a Changing Policy Context is Ellen Boeren’s first monograph and the culmination of more than 10 years of experience in researching participation issues in adult education. The book’s narrative is deeply rooted in the author’s academic journey, which gives it a personal and easy-to-relate-to quality. It is a short but information-rich book with the ambitious aim of proposing a new interdisciplinary approach to ‘adult lifelong learning participation’, drawing on a wide range of disciplines which include economics, educational research, political sciences, psychology and sociology. The monograph is divided into three parts and nine chapters.
