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

Glasgow City Council commissioned the delivery of the Exploring Pedagogy in Primary 1 (EPP1) professional development programme (PDP) to continue its commitment to raising children's educational attainment in schools as part of the Scottish Attainment Challenge Initiative. The EPP1 project aimed to improve learning experiences through a targeted professional development programme exploring pedagogical approaches and theories to inform practice in the early years. The project ran from June 2017 to June 2018 and involved a total of 18 teachers and practitioners from across five schools in Glasgow City Council. During this time, the teachers participated in an 8-week PDP designed, delivered and evaluated by the University of Strathclyde. The evaluation strand of the project evaluated the effectiveness of the EPP1 programme by examining its impact on children's learning experiences and teachers' thinking and practice, through a series of questionnaires, classroom observations and group discussions.
