Murray Goldberg Marine Learning Systems The New Wave Conference June 13, 2014
The Problem … We divide training into two parts: cert. & fam. Most, when asked, feel both critical …with fam. becoming increasingly important Yet different training rigor applied to each Standardized & approved courses / Job Shadow (Beginning to change - type-specific ECDIS) … But why is famming so loosely defined/reg.?
Why isn’t Famming Rigorous & Standardized? Because it is hard! With cert., have luxury of one-size-fits-all … but with vsl-spec., every training event differs Consider the BC Ferries example: 10 – 20 positions on a vessel 35 vessels 25 routes Think of it as building a textbook – you can’t! … so what did BC Ferries decide to do? …
BC Ferries Case Study Recognized imposs. to build thousands of progs. Sol’n was SEA: Standard. Ed. And Assessment …Part of the “SailSafe” initiative SEA is “blended learning” training & fam. prog. Includes BCF know., generic comp & spec comp. Blended = far superior outcomes The “problem” part was vessel-, route- & terminal- specific equip know. & competencies How to create stnd. reference materials? ….
Adaptive Learning Where the LMS builds prog. tailored to trainee Asks trainee for position, vessel, route, terminal Generates custom “textbook” based on answer Likewise for all assessments Likewise for trainer ref. & training materials This way specific layouts, equipment, routines are taught & tested in standard & rigorous way Not otherwise possible … How does it work? …
Adaptive Learning: How Does it Work? Instead of courses, use small “learning objects” Each teaches one comp. (eg – engine startup) Each tagged according to position, vessel, etc In add., have “training framework” Indicates how objs. are asmbld. into “textbook” Now, when trainee indicates training needs: LMS asmbls. needed objects accrd. to framework Result looks as though built by hand … Great benefits …
Adaptive Learning: Benefits For Trainee: Better training! One authoritative source of information (tr / ref) Always up to date For Organization: Better training! Now possible to create and maintain Changes to leaning made in one place Vessel changes trivial … and it works …
SailSafe Results … NOT solely due to SEA, But easy to argue that training comonent had significant effect … Adaptive Learning: Benefits
