Article
Full-text available
Ecosystem service potential Confidence scores Evidence gaps particularly scarce, especially in SE Asia. Given the growing coastal population and expansion in blue economy sectors in SE Asia, evidence to support effective marine planning, such as ecosystem service assessments, is urgently needed. Data deficiencies for marine systems, especially (but...

Policy brief around more integrated mangrove management in the Klang Islands, Malaysia
Article
Full-text available
Despite wide recognition of the multiple ecosystem services provided by mangroves, they continue to experience decline and degradation especially in the face of urbanization. Given the interplay between multiple resources and stakeholders in the fate of mangroves, mangrove management can be framed as a nexus challenge and nexus thinking used to ide...
Article
Early consideration of potential societal issues faced by the nascent tidal industry is important to facilitate public engagement and potentially avoid levels of conflict that have arisen within other renewable energy sectors; general expressions of public support (as reported in national-scale attitude surveys) do not always translate into approva...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The UK Government is committed to a target of 15% of electricity consumption from renewable sources by 2020. DEFRA’s 25-year environment plan also places a commitment on protecting the UK’s natural capital. To honour these commitments, the energy system needs to be decarbonised, albeit in a way that safeguards natural capital and provides acceptabl...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Half of the world’s mangroves disappeared in the 20th century, due largely to population growth in coastal areas and associated human activities. South-East Asia has seen 2% (100,000Ha) of its mangroves lost between 2000 and 2012. This trend is reflected at a local scale on the Klang Islands, a group of small islands 35 miles south-west of Kuala Lu...
Article
This paper describes an innovative use of Lesson Study (LS), an internationally used collaborative approach in which teachers develop their teaching knowledge and practices. It aimed to evaluate how EPs join teachers in LS teams, using working memory and other knowledge to inform the teaching of pupils with learning difficulties. The study uses a c...
Technical Report
Full-text available
The Moor Health & Wellbeing evaluation project aimed to identify processes and factors which inhibit or support the successful use of nature engagement across National Parks to promote health and wellbeing. An exploration of the similarities, differences, challenges and successes across two linked three-year projects that explored the relationships...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose This paper aims to focus on the undergraduate research conference as its sphere of study and investigate the impact of significance of participation and socialisation in such activities on student attitudes and professional development. Using situated learning to theoretically position the undergraduate research conference as an authentic l...
Article
Full-text available
As the benefits of outdoor learning have become of increasing interest to the education sector, so the importance of understanding and overcoming challenges associated with this pedagogy has gained greater significance. The Natural Connections Demonstration Project recruited primary, secondary, and special schools across south-west England with a v...
Article
Full-text available
In this article, we consider the term ‘assessment’, its relationship to ‘evaluation’ and the implications for outdoor learning in the light of changing educational policy on assessment in England. A small-scale empirical study of how assessment was practised by two primary teachers on a residential trip and two further cases in practice are used to...
Article
Full-text available
Reported benefits of research-informed teaching include enhanced student engagement and graduates that are better prepared for employment in an uncertain world. However, there are a number of academic risks that can have both positive and negative impacts on staff and students when implementing research-informed teaching. Mitigating such risks coul...
Article
Full-text available
The diversification of settings in which higher education is delivered has resulted in a growing proportion of lecturers entering teaching from professional backgrounds. This is a challenging transition as lecturers are rarely given the space to consider the implications of this move on their identities and practice styles. Writing is recognised as...
Article
Full-text available
Growing emphasis on research output has spawned initiatives to enhance writing practices, often targeted at groups less familiar with academic research practices. This paper discusses a collaborative writing group project for higher education lecturers working in further education colleges. Participants had previously undertaken funded pedagogic re...
Article
Full-text available
There is now considerable support in the higher education literature for research-informed teaching as a means of improving student learning, particularly where this involves students as co-investigators. Such an approach, however, comes with a number of risks that have received little pedagogic attention. This paper addresses that knowledge gap by...
Article
Full-text available
This article reports the findings of a science e-journal initiative to publish undergraduate research, and assesses student evaluations of this experience. Students in this (post-1992, non research-intensive) institution overwhelmingly reported that research was a key feature of their course at the point of the e-journal introduction, and that they...

Project
The Bristol Channel-Severn Estuary (BC-SE) was used as a case study to explore i) the implications of potential tidal and wave energy production methods on the cultural ecosystem benefits for residents and ii) public perception of tidal and wave energy and the extent to which people are willing to trade-off between biodiversity/cultural ecosystem benefits and the need for a clean, affordable, renewable and secure source of energy.
Project
1. Advance the application of nexus thinking to the sustainable management of fishery resources 2. Set the foundation for community-based fishery management in the mangrove ecosystem 3. Develop a program of environmental education emphasising the importance of mangroves
