TOWARDS MASTERING INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGIC TRANSFER AT THE NAUTICAL SCIENCES DIVISION

M. Vervoort

Antwerp Maritime Academy (BELGIUM)
A project is currently under implementation in the Antwerp Maritime Academy (BELGIUM) to enable nautical sciences students to integrate technical knowledge encompassing social skills (teamwork, cooperation, planning, decision making, problem-solving abilities, communication skills…) and to integrate also innovation skills. This model is based on the deployment of a project-based cooperative learning approach across the curriculum (2nd and 3rd year).
The benefit of scientific research implemented with project-based learning for the education of nautical science students resulting in the graduate degree of ‘academic bachelor in nautical sciences’ will be discussed with the present changes with the implementation of the new STCW Manila Norms into the educational program.
At Antwerp Maritime Academy (AMA) this can be illustrated by the benefit of scientific research on projects like ‘Sailing with open deck Happy-R-type ships’, ‘Frysian Solar Challenge 2012’and the ‘Effects of biodiesel in diesel engines’, ‘Corrosion of ballast tanks in double hull ships’ and the ‘Movement of toxic vapours on board of gas tankers during loading and unloading process’.
Preliminary results show that undergraduate students are involved, enhance understanding, improve retention, become proficient in problem solving, self-directed learning, build decision criteria and team participation (cooperate rather than compete).
The interrelationship between education and (practical) nautical research and its specific application are an interesting example for conference participants, especially for those who want to obtain a deeper understanding of how innovation can be nurtured by education that is in itself supported, cultivated and strengthened by (practically-based) scientific research.
