Abstract:Abstract: Airline flight training focuses on the pilot who is flying the airplane, leaving the other pilot in the two-pilot flight deck to independently develop crew-oriented flight path monitoring strategies. Lapses in monitoring can lead to incidents and accidents when crews misinterpret the aircraft’s state and mismanage flight automation systems. To address this, NASA human factors researchers developed a monitoring framework based on the organizational psychology concept of “sensemaking.” This approach teaches crews to monitor their flight path through a three-part process of; 1) develop a situation model, 2) manage tasks and attention to more efficiently allocate attention resources, and 3) communicate effectively as a crew. An asynchronous learning module using task-based learning and design for motivation introduced this sensemaking monitoring framework to airline pilots. Twenty participants used the module and answered survey questions measuring the effectiveness of design for motivation and task-based learning. The pilots responded favorably to the design, with positive survey responses for relevance, integration, and acceptance.
