  1. 1. Development of Resource-based Learning Organisers to enhance Training on Simulators Kalyan Chatterjea Singapore Maritime Academy Takeshi Nakazawa World Maritime University
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Simulation-based training is being increasingly used at the Singapore Maritime Academy (SMA) to increase the percentage of skill-components in the maritime curricula. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Resource-based Learning Organisers [RALOs] <ul><li>We have created Resource-based Advanced Learning Organizers (RALOs: Ausubel,1960) to facilitate personalised learning in Engine Room Simulator Training. </li></ul><ul><li>Learning on a Steam Propulsion Simulator from MPRI Ship Analytic is used for this study. </li></ul><ul><li>The system developed is now being tried out for the Steam COC Course for LNG Propulsion. </li></ul>
  4. 4. RALOs – A Hyper-Semantic Map Approach <ul><li>To provide support in a large domain of knowledge for learners a semantic map approach is suggested by Kayama et al. (2001). </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Resource-based Learning Organisers [RALOs]
  6. 6. RALO Development – Task of LNG Tanker Activation… Dry Dock to Full-Away! <ul><li>The task is spilt into 20 sub-tasks [20 simulator exercises – 20 nodes]. </li></ul><ul><li>A RALO has the purpose of visualizing the overall sequential tasks at-hand and also providing interface for accessing resources via this visual organiser. </li></ul><ul><li>Each node becomes a Learning Object and at the moment we are populating these nodes with learning quizzes. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Resource-based Learning Organisers [RALOs] <ul><li>Features of a RALO </li></ul><ul><ul><li>facilitates personalised learning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>enhances assimilation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>uses automated formative assessment to scaffold learning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>promotes constructivist social learning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>encourages inquiry-based and exploratory learning, which should help to synthesize knowledge </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Learning Objects… are being put together by the learners themselves
  9. 9. Learning Objects … multi-level knowledge hierarchy
  10. 10. Flexible Learning… using concept mapping which localizes knowledge <ul><li>Concept mapping tools support situational relevance on spatial representations </li></ul><ul><li>It could breakdown complex learning tasks into manageable learning objects, with their own resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Graphical representations in concept maps enhance cognitive process of managing knowledge and information in resource-based learning and problem solving environments (Cox, 1999). </li></ul>

  24. 24. Acknowledgement <ul><li>I would like to thank </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Singapore Maritime Academy & Maritime Port Authority for supporting me in this research project. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>World Maritime University & in particular, Professor Takeshi Nakazawa for his encouragement and active support in this research project. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul></ul>
  25. 25. Thank You! <ul><li>I thank the ICERS 8 Organizers & those present today to allow me to share our teaching & learning experience at the Singapore Maritime Academy! </li></ul>
