For Rose Gubele, assistant professor of English, attending the annual Conference on College Composition and Communication in Tampa, Florida, is a way to brush up on the English teaching field and present her work. This year, she was able to share that experience with future teachers.

The Canadian Coast Guard national VHF-DSC (digital selective calling) network controlled by MCTS Centres can process VHF-DSC “Test Calls” from vessels provided that the marine radio meets the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) standard Recommendation M.493-11 (or higher) “Digital selective-calling system for use in the maritime mobile service”.

If difficulty is experienced in establishing contact with the MCTS Centre, or if contact is desired with another vessel, the initial call may be made on the calling frequency Ch 16 in which case the station called will reply on the same frequency. As soon as communication has been established a change must be made to an agreed working frequency and all further communications made on that frequency.

How Recruiters Use Social Networks to Screen …

There is little current task analysis work in the marine industry. One example of recent work (Sanquist et al., 1994) is a study done by Battelle Seattle Research Center under contract to the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) to develop a systematic approach for determining the effects of new automation on mariner qualification and training. The program was undertaken in connection with the agency's responsibilities in marine licensing and its goal to ''determine the minimum standards of experience, physical ability, and knowledge to qualify individuals for each type of license or seaman's documentation." Although the report,Cognitive Analysis of Navigation Tasks: A Tool for Training and Assessment and Equipment Design (Sanquist et al., 1994), is targeted to automated systems aboard ships, the results should provide task analyses at a level that is detailed enough to effectively apply instructional design to relevant training program development.

No quantitative research was identified by the committee that would establish the relative merits of different approaches to marine training and the types of training offered. There is, however, a research basis that supports the application of different levels of simulation to achieve certain training objectives for cadets, mates, masters, and pilots (Hammell et al., 1980, 1981a, 1981b, 1985; Gynther et al., 1982a, 1982b, 1985). The guides from this research are either preliminary or dated as a result of recent changes in manning and automation. Nevertheless, the guides remain a principal reference and could be used as a starting point for instructional design. The committee observed that few, if any, facilities appear to be using these materials for this purpose.

It can be an advantage for instructors to visit and familiarize themselves with the real geographical area they are simulating. A visit and local knowledge also help instructors incorporate appropriate visual cues and local operating procedures, particularly if the instructor may have to play the role of a local pilot. Alternatively, a mariner with prior experience in the simulated area could serve as a design consultant.

Effectively observing students in a simulated maritime environment is a skill in itself and is central to conducting an effective debriefing. The seagoing experience of a senior mariner is essential to this role and further emphasizes the need for highly qualified and motivated instructors and assessors.
