Icers 8 Takeshi Kalyan Compressed Icers 8 Takeshi Kalyan Compressed Presentation Transcript

  • Development of Resource-based Learning Organisers to enhance Training on Simulators Kalyan Chatterjea Singapore Maritime Academy Takeshi Nakazawa World Maritime University
  • Introduction
    • Simulation-based training is being increasingly used at the Singapore Maritime Academy (SMA) to increase the percentage of skill-components in the maritime curricula.
    • At SMA we are trying to create a digital supporting environment, which could scaffold learners and thereby allow for flexible & easy-paced learning to suite the needs of individual learners.
  • Resource-based Learning Organisers [RALOs]
    • We have created Resource-based Advanced Learning Organizers (RALOs: Ausubel,1960) to facilitate personalised learning in Engine Room Simulator Training.
    • Learning on a Steam Propulsion Simulator from MPRI Ship Analytic is used for this study.
    • The system developed is now being tried out for the Steam COC Course for LNG Propulsion.
  • RALOs – A Hyper-Semantic Map Approach
    • To provide support in a large domain of knowledge for learners a semantic map approach is suggested by Kayama et al. (2001).
    • Taking a similar approach, we are trying to develop a framework of semantic maps, with embedded resources to support learners in developing skills on a Steam Propulsion Simulator.
  • Resource-based Learning Organisers [RALOs]
  • RALO Development – Task of LNG Tanker Activation… Dry Dock to Full-Away!
    • The task is spilt into 20 sub-tasks [20 simulator exercises – 20 nodes].
    • A RALO has the purpose of visualizing the overall sequential tasks at-hand and also providing interface for accessing resources via this visual organiser.
    • Each node becomes a Learning Object and at the moment we are populating these nodes with learning quizzes.
  • Resource-based Learning Organisers [RALOs]
    • Features of a RALO
      • facilitates personalised learning
      • enhances assimilation
      • uses automated formative assessment to scaffold learning
      • promotes constructivist social learning
      • encourages inquiry-based and exploratory learning, which should help to synthesize knowledge
  • Learning Objects… are being put together by the learners themselves
  • Learning Objects … multi-level knowledge hierarchy
  • Flexible Learning… using concept mapping which localizes knowledge
    • Concept mapping tools support situational relevance on spatial representations
    • It could breakdown complex learning tasks into manageable learning objects, with their own resources.
    • Graphical representations in concept maps enhance cognitive process of managing knowledge and information in resource-based learning and problem solving environments (Cox, 1999).
  • On-demand online tests … with immediate feedback
  • On-demand online tests … with immediate feedback Last Cohort
  • On-demand online tests … Quizzes connected to individual learning objectives! Present Cohort
  • On-demand online tests … Learning Object Approach
  • Classroom Arrangement … a constructivist environment
  • Work at WMU … a collaborative effort
  • Work at WMU … a collaborative effort
  • Work at WMU … a new KBS Structure
  • Work at WMU … a new course interface
  • Work at WMU … a new KBS Network
  • New KBS Network … already implemented
  • New Interactive eBoard … being implemented
  • New RankineCycler … Lab-based Thermodynamics - being implemented
  • Acknowledgement
    • I would like to thank
      • Singapore Maritime Academy & Maritime Port Authority for supporting me in this research project.
      • World Maritime University & in particular, Professor Takeshi Nakazawa for his encouragement and active support in this research project.
      • All the participating students, who are continuously supporting and contributing to improve the dynamic knowledgebase, which is being generated as an outcome of this research venture.
  • Thank You!
    • I thank the ICERS 8 Organizers & those present today to allow me to share our teaching & learning experience at the Singapore Maritime Academy!
