Learning through Simulation

This article discusses the use of maritime simulation through the perspective of an educator. In the simulator, students learn in two major modalities: either through problem-based learning or by collaborative learning. Problem-based learning focuses on problem-solving and decision-making, and encompasses real-world situations, cognitive processes, complexity issues, and technical skill competency. Collaborative learning emphasizes the social and behavioral aspects of learning and incorporates social/behavioral theories, cognitive processes, teamwork, and shared mental models. In a team setting like bridge team watchstanding, students learn through both models simultaneously, so simulation is the ideal setting where real-world scenarios can be played out quite realistically and without risk, bringing maritime training and education closer to its goal of reduced human error and safer seas.
