You will be a guest lecturer for one week in a 300-level, online course on human factors in aviation safety consisting of 25 adult students with diverse backgrounds and experience. As the guest lecturer, the professor has asked you to share your experience with the class. After all, you are a Subject Matter Expert in the field of Human Factors and Aviation Safety! First, decide exactly what you want to discuss by formulating your topic for the lecture by filling in the blank: The importance of training and education to optimize human performance and reduce error in aviation safety for ______ safety problem/challenge Please answer the following: What is your topic? What are the learning objectives you want to convey to your students (3–4 key points) How will you design your content delivery? What part is training, and what part is education? What training method, education approaches, and job aids will you use, and why? Compare and contrast the method, approaches, and job aids you selected to those you did not. What job aid(s) did you select and how is it used in your class? How will you measure student success? Do not provide the actual course content, but instead describe your training and education methods, and explain how you would teach the class on the subject you have selected. Compile the information into a paper of no more than 5-7 pages. While APA is not required for the paper itself, ensure that any references are properly cited in current APA format.
You will submit a 12 to 15-page (including cover page & references), double-spaced research paper in APA format, using the rubric in Module 8 as a guide. You will identify current issues, regulations, and practices, and address related legal considerations on your chosen topic, using proper legal terminology throughout Subject is Emirates Airlines but with a comparison to Delta in the U.S. a. Describe the airline, its aircraft fleet, route structure and number of employees. b.

If neither the airline’s pilots nor its maintenance personnel are represented by a labor union or unions, discern whether a law of the airline’s home nation accounts for that and, if so, briefly describe that law.
You work for a large aviation company in the design section. In a high-level meeting today, your bosses have gathered all the design engineers together to discuss the fact that our aviation partners have reported an alarming increase in cockpit errors, flight crew mistakes, and other human performance problems in every aspect of industry operations in the past year. Customers are frustrated, management is unhappy, and this is trickling back to you, the design engineers, to see if you can offer some solutions for improvement based on your knowledge of the industry, design, ergonomics, and human factors. Select a design problem, and describe how ergonomics and/or human factors in design, technology, or automation may help to mitigate/reduce/remedy this problem. Provide data from a scholarly source or related case to back up this proposal. Finally, explain how you will implement this proposal, track the success measures, and include a feedback loop and timeline. Your paper should be 3-5 pages in length. While APA format is not required for the paper itself, ensure that any references are properly cited in current APA format. Your paper will automatically be evaluated through Turnitin when you submit your assignment in this activity.
