Development of the University of Canterbury Volcanic Hazards Simulation

Synopsis of the Project
The Volcanic Hazards Simulation is a multi-hour, collaborative face-to-face exercise in
which 300-400 level students in geological sciences and hazard management manage a
volcanic eruption event. Central to the simulation are geological data streams provided to
the students on which they base their decisions. Currently, these streams are delivered
through a website. Observation and student interview data showed several technical and
pedagogical issues with the current website design. (eg data display, instructor master
control, pausing and rewinding the data stream). With this grant, we aim to remedy the
issues identified to make for a more rewarding student experience.
