|E-LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES IN SUPPORT OF CRISIS MANAGEMENT||Bogdan, Vasile (2014); Let’s Build the Future Through Learning Innovation!, Vol Iii, 470-473||Efforts are currently needed in the optimization of crisis management, as instability can occur in all areas. As it is the Prime Minister’s attribute crisis management is an area of responsibility of the Government and this enables extensive optimization approaches. Crisis management task returns to a specialized structure, multiministerial Joint Command type, subordinate to the Executive. In order to improve future involvement of multiple participants, e-Learning strategies must be used, these strategies being tailored to the command/control chain for the GolD Silver and Bronze commands, structured on all levels of execution. Strategies and software used will be addressed to the commands, both during crisis management and consequences management. In working with the Learning Content Management System, it is important that multiple participation, analysis, results’ assessment and feedback correction be considered from the perspective of the Effects Based Approach Operation. This allows the increase of the level of the educational act through specific methods, and also the increase of information quality in the system for decision making of both manager and operational levels, achievable in the complex and fluid changing environment. The activities that can take place through e-Learning technologies give the possibility of multidisciplinary analysis of adopted solutions, allow the improvement of the decision taken, in real time, in the same time involving all the headquarters that are responsible in solving the crisis. The possibilities of Computer Based Training help in an efficient manner to improve the organizational culture by developing the cooperation spirit between the structures that are activated in the virtual model assuring the suitable instruments as for the performers to find good solutions for the operational environment created for them. Based on the experience of the leaders, computers can be used to extend learning. By implementing the process of e-Learning in crisis management at all levels, facilitates quick connection of the national system that are dealing with the situation with similar European and NATO sub-systems, with the help of computers. Naturally, the positive practices will be quickly and efficiently generalized through the specific possibilities assured by the virtual environment in a multiple framework that accentuates the need for multiple collaboration|
|IMPROVING CRISIS COMMUNICATION SKILLS IN HEALTH EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT||Costa, P.; Soares, J. (2013); 6th International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation (Iceri 2013), 1061–1068||In any emergency situation, but especially in health emergency scenarios, rapid and effective responses are requested to maintain or to restore normal conditions and to allow the access of the affected population to the adequate health care. These responses are only possible if extensive preparedness planning programmes are in place and if communication tools and guidelines are available in advance for the all actors, especially health care managers, media and population in general. Thus it is important to promote training and capacity building solutions with the objective of developing professionals’ skills in crisis communication and health emergency management. Considering the recent health emergency scenarios in Europe, strengthening crisis communication and management capacities in European health systems is a priority to allow a quick and efficient response to the crisis situation. Guarantying a continue exchange of information among health authorities, population and media, using different communication channels (such as social networks, blogs, online magazines and other web portals) is essential to manage an emergency in the most effective way. Thus, there is a relevant need to design and develop adapted training materials focusing on different professionals’ competencies and including a special emphasis on how to use the new communication channels in an emergency situation. Aiming at setting up a common pattern of content in crisis communication and health emergency management a consortium of six partners from Portugal, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium and Denmark is developing an innovative training approach, to support health authorities to improve the cooperation with the others actors involved in health emergency management and crisis scenarios (normally the population and the media) with the final scope of developing training materials and a set of communication tools that will focus on how health authorities can improve the cooperation with the others actors involved in the emergency management in order to deal with the health emergencies/crisis in the best and quickest way|
|An architecture for co-designing participatory and knowledge-intensive serious games||El Mawas, Nour (2014) Proceedings of the 2014 International Conference on Collaboration Technologies and Systems (Cts), 387–394||In this paper we present the “Architecture for Representations, Games, Interactions, and Learning among Experts” (ARGILE) suitable for “participatory and knowledge-intensive” serious games. It proposes solutions within the context of targeted learning, concerning scenarios, in which conception of serious games, and their utilization through a better share by designers is considered. In this work, we are interested in the training of advanced expertise and complex practices (e.g. best practices acquisition in crisis management, decision making in complex socio-technical systems.) where the transmitted knowledge is in the form continuous evolution. The rules and the game objects are directly generated from a special discussion forum, which contains successive versions of the textual rules/items continuously discussed, co-built by the designers’ community, and in strong relation with the players’ community. We suggest a set of criteria, methodology and experiments to verify that the rules and game objects are easily annotated, discussed and modified by trainers and experts of the field using ARGILE. That will be illustrated concretely, using the ideas presented on an example in sustainability.|
|Education and Training in Crisis Management||Hoskova-Mayerova, Sarka (2016) Iceepsy 2016 – 7th International Conference on Education and Educational Conference, 16, 849–856||Quality education is an indispensable prerequisite for all kinds of human activities. No area of human activity if it has to function properly can exist without sophisticated education that determines the quality of workers in the given area. Training of public administration officials is a very important step to ensure conditions for adequate response in case of disasters and other emergencies. Conditions for successful solutions can be created by acquiring professional knowledge and skills, having mastered technical and technological readiness to manage critical crisis situations and creating and updating legislation interlinked with harmonizing mutual cooperation with EU countries. This article aims to highlight the inconsistence in educating “target groups” in the field of crisis management which is becoming a systematic problem in the educational system of the Czech Republic. According to 39 of the Act no. 111/1998 Coll., on universities and on the change and amendments to other Acts, the military colleges and universities prepare specialists, particularly for armed forces. However, students, not being soldiers in active duty, can study there as well. Police colleges prepare experts especially for security forces. However, there can also study those who are not members of the security forces. Moreover, the paper analyses the possibility to prepare “a common minimum”, which could be reflected in curricula of universities and colleges preparing students in the field of crisis management. The results of the analysis will be the base for the proposal, which would greatly help to resolve the situation. (C) 2016 Published by Future Academy www.FutureAcademy.org.uk|
|INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES AND THEIR USAGE IN CRISIS MANAGEMENT AS A TOOL TO INCREASE THE QUALITY OF EDUCATIONAL PROCESS||Kazansky, Rastislav; Melkova, Michaela (2015); Ecology, Economics, Education and Legislation, Vol Ii, 917–924||The purpose of the research is to define the procedures of the crisis management and use information technologies to create simulation, which will increase the quality of educational process. The research is divided into two parts. In the first theoretical part we used the descriptive and analytical synthetic method to characterize information technologies used in crisis management and we also identified crisis management procedures. The second practical part consist of the virtual model of terrorist attack, which we created by usage of single simulation system based on VR-Forces simulation. Due to the continuous and rapid development of information technologies, it is now possible in the context of crisis management to create virtual models of crisis situations that reflect the reality of environment. The simulation is a special training method, which enhances the quality of educational process, but also prepares individual entities for the crisis situations.|
