MSHF606 ERU Metacomprehension and Virtual Reality Fidelity Brief


There are many industry simulation systems that are used for training new operators. The expectation is that training with a virtual system will translate to comparable experience that would be gained working in a real-world environment. Examples are GE High Fidelity Plant Simulators, plasma welding and torching, underground mining, nuclear reactors, oil production platforms, and others. For instance, Siemens has an advanced simulator to train technicians how to assemble machines that employ 3-D technology and virtual engagement with VPL gloves and VR-Star goggles as the trainee moves through a cylinder resembling the actual working environment. Proponents claim this type of full experience allows greater fidelity of actual working conditions and enhances comprehension in the work environment. Let’s say you have been brought in to a design review as a human factor’s specialist. At issue are concerns about how operators familiar with an older system might respond to the virtual reality simulation training. When considering how humans think about their own thinking (metacognition), a dimension of that involves how humans correct their thinking when new information is assimilated or they become aware of certain discrepancies (metacomprehension). In your view, does the added fidelity and complexity in these types of virtual training reinforce comprehension skills and translate directly to the actual working conditions, or is it more likely to generate a loss of confidence and confusion when trainees fail to execute correctly once on the job? Explain your reasoning and also indicate to what extent any difficulties might be attributed to metacomprehension effects. Provide at least one scholarly resource to support your assessment.

Present this as a brief. Your brief should be approximately 800 words in length and should be written in APA format.
