A Methodological Framework for Evaluating Maritime Simulation
1 University of the Aegean, Chios, Greece
ABSTRACT: The application of simulation courses according to STCW conversion is addressed to the education of marine deck and engine officers in order to familiarize with the working environment, emergency contingency training and trouble shooting. This paper presents a framework which evaluates the participants in the courses of simulator, according to their concerns and their level of use. Actually this framework is an innovative concept which tries to identify how the contributors think and work in this virtual environment. The results from the application of this framework are presented in this paper, based on student?s concerns, reactions and level of use with respect to the exercise and efficiency of simulation training courses taken place at the Merchant Marine Academy of Engine Officers on Chios Island. The main goal of our research is to promote a general framework which can be easily applied in any marine simulation curses and will be very useful to the instructor for reorganizing, redesigning and finally configurating the Simulation Courses according to their participant.
