ABSTRACT Easy-to-difficult and difficult-to-easy progressions of task difficulty during skill acquisition were examined in 2 experiments that assessed retention, dual-task, and transfer tests of learning. Findings of the first experiment suggest that an easy-to difficult progression did not consistently induce implicit learning processes and was no...
Article
Using Delphi methodology, we created measurement instruments for specific training tasks included in Marine Emergency Duties training. Six Marine and Offshore Safety and Survival instructors rated items important for immersion suit and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) donning tasks. Consensus was reached, and an item was included on the fi...
Article
In emergencies at sea, it is crucial that the crew members remember emergency tasks. Although these practical skills are occasionally trained for, some are not routinely practiced and it is expected that performance of these skills will degrade over time. This program evaluation addresses whether characteristics can predict performance of marine em...

The purpose of the present review was to provide a theoretical understanding of the learning advantages underlying a self-controlled practice context through the tenets of the self-determination theory (SDT). Three micro-theories within the macro-theory of SDT (Basic psychological needs theory, Cognitive Evaluation Theory, and Organismic Integratio...
Article
Objective The purpose of this study was to determine whether chiropractic clinicians modulate spinal manipulation (SM) thrust characteristics based on visual perception of simulated human silhouette attributes. Methods We performed a cross-sectional within-participant design with 8 experienced chiropractors. During each trial, participants observe...
Article
Fishing vessels often encounter propulsion machinery faults, resulting in the main propulsion system (MPS) failure. MPS failure can lead to safety and economic loss. Maintenance programming is an effective way to mitigate MPS failures. Given the nature of the fishing business, corrective and preventive maintenance approaches are not best suited for...
Article
Investigations into the causes of maritme incidents/accidents have often identified human error as one of the leading causal factors. Small vessels employed in small-scale fisheries activities, usually have little or no onboard shelter and limited navigation and safety equipment. The operator's effectiveness at the performance of their duty task is...
Article
Fishing is considered one of the most dangerous occupations globally. Small-scale fisheries, which make up about 90% of the entire industry worldwide, are done using small boats with little onboard shelter and limited navigation and safety equipment. Small-scale fishing uses small fishing vessels such as small trawlers, which are prone to accidents...
Article
One major accident scenario aboard fishing vessels is “man overboard” (MOB). Prevention of this accident scenario would reduce the high fatality rate in the fishing industry. Critical understanding of the risk factors is vital for a robust risk assessment of this accident scenario and to develop interventions. This paper presents the Objected-Orien...
Article
There is a lack of published research examining ways to mitigate the effects of attention on human error prevalence in the marine setting. Evidence from the aviation industry, a very similar field, shows that attention does impact performance, especially when more than one task is to be completed at the same time. Much like pilots, mariners are con...

BACKGROUND: Emergency helicopter landing at sea is dangerous. Specialized training, known as helicopter underwater escape training (HUET), prepares occupants to quickly exit the helicopter, which often inverts and sinks. In most jurisdictions, helicopter occupants are equipped with a helicopter underwater egress breathing apparatus (HUEBA) to provi...

This project aimed to evaluate effects of ambient lighting during practice and performance of simulated helicopter escape sequences. Participants were randomized to one of the following groups to practice a standard helicopter underwater escape sequence: Light (with room lights on), Dark (with room lights off), or Graduated (in the light for the fi...
Article
Correct rope rescue techniques are critical for safey. These tasks can be anxiety provoking yet it is not clear how anxiety affects learning. An anxious environment was created by practising difficult skills at height. Participants practised preparing rope rescue hauling systems in a general classroom setting (Low practice group) or trained at a 14...
Technical Report
Full-text available
This is the final report of the RE-D-USE project (New knowledge for reduction and utilization of marine waste from fisheries). The project has worked with fishers to identify causes and solutions related to marine waste from fisheries. It has developed and tested an educational program for fishers to reduce waste and gear loss. RE-D-USE also invest...
Article
Conclusion: The combined effect of cold and moisture led to the largest performance decrements except when intrinsic object properties helped with grasp maintenance. The independent effects of cold and moisture on manual performance were comparable. Application Tools and equipment for use in the cold ocean environment should be designed to minimiz...
Article
Conflicting viewpoints regarding the role of errors produced during practice of motor skills raise questions regarding errors in low-stakes simulation of high-stakes performance contexts. Current knowledge regarding the relationship between errors in practice and later sport performance is based on novice performers and relatively simple, drill-lik...
Article
Objective: To investigate the effect of hand immersion duration on manipulative ability and tactile sensitivity. Background: Individuals in maritime settings often work with hands that have been immersed in water. Although research has shown that hand immersion duration differentially impacts skin adhesion and tactile sensitivity, the effect of...
Article
The influence of nominal and functional task difficulty during the acquisition of a motor skill was examined in two tests of transfer of learning. The task involved a ballistic, target-directed, finger action. Nominal task difficulty was defined as the distance of the target from the home position. Functional task difficulty was created by manipula...

The authors examined yoked versus self-controlled practice schedules to determine their influence in immediate and delayed dual-task performance. The task was to propel a small disc along a smooth table top, with the purpose of stopping it in a specified target area. Participants in the self-controlled schedule group chose the order in which eight...
Article
The benefit of providing learners control over their repetition schedule during multi-task learning has been limited to adult samples. Recently, differences in self-controlled strategies, such as frequent requests for knowledge of results by children (10 years) compared to adults have been reported. The purpose of the present experiment was to asse...
Article
The present experiment examined the learning effects of participants self-controlling their receipt of knowledge of results (KR) on all or half of their acquisition trials (50%). For participants who were provided 50% self-control, the first half of their acquisition period consisted of receiving KR on all trials, or according to a faded-KR schedul...
Thesis
Full-text available
Children were afforded the opportunity to control the order of repetitions for three novel spatiotemporal sequences. The following was predicted: a) children and adults in the self-regulated (SELF) groups would produce faster movement (MT) and reaction times (R T) and greater recall success (RS) during retention compared to the age-matched yoked (Y...
