Abstract: The instructional videos, UHH Boat Operations – Basic Research Techniques, is a new project. The videos were created to describe the research and teaching capabilities of the university's research vessels to new students. I am an Instructor of Marine Science at UH – Hilo. A primary component of my "locus of control" is the instruction of oceanographic techniques for undergraduate marine science students. Students in the MARE 201L course are primarily traditional college students in their freshman or sophomore year. Their exposure to oceanographic research techniques is commonly limited. The videos focus on the R/V Makani Aha and how research is conducted during the MARE 201L Course, Introduction to Oceanography. It is hoped by presenting the techniques, research operational efficiency and safety will improve aboard the vessel. Each technique is demonstrated in a three to five minute clip. The students were given a pre-test, following by a presentation of the videos, followed by a post test. Thirty two students participated in the exercise. Post-test scores increased by an average of 56% over pre-test scores, suggesting the videos were effective in familiarizing the students in the research techniques we use aboard the boat.
