Safety as Pedagogy: Using Learning Management Systems to Imprint Essential Safety Concepts in Aviation Students

Michael F. Canders
Abstract—Safe operations are essential for organizational success, perhaps no more so than in aviation. A culture of safety can be a leading contributor to an aviation organization’s success but developing such a culture and maintaining it can be very challenging. Collegiate aviation programs provide an exceptional opportunity to teach essential safety culture components to new aviators but a single safety course or two as part of the curriculum may not be enough. This paper presents a framework for using an established Learning Management Systems to present and reinforce key safety concepts to students as well as to support the construction and maintenance of a safety culture in the flying operations portion of a collegiate aviation program.

Index Terms—Aviation safety, learning management system (LMS), safety management system (SMS), safety culture.
