  • Dr. Ghosh has been associated with the maritime and shipping industry since 1996.
  • He was a qualified Master Mariner before joining the AMC as an educator in 2010.
  • His efforts in teaching seafarers have won him numerous awards and citations within UTAS and AMC.
  • His research has primarily focussed on improving assessment methods (through valid and reliable authentic assessment) to improve overall student engagement with learning.

Biography

Dr Ghosh was employed as a professional mariner in international shipping companies for more than a decade.

On retiring as a Master Mariner, he pursued academic education to obtain a Bachelor’s, two Master’s and PhD degree from the University of Tasmania.

His association with the maritime industry continued as an educator at the AMC from 2010. During his tenure as a teacher, he has won the University of Tasmania Teaching Merit Certificate (2014), Letter of Commendation from University Provost on Outstanding Student Achievement (2020 and 2021), Letter of Commendation from Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education on Outstanding Student Feedback (2022), and Director’s citation for contribution to seafarer education and training (2020).

His passion for teaching led him to found ‘Steering Mariners’, a YouTube channel which provides free educational and training videos for seafarers and mariners to help them with their learning and exams for certification at a global and recognized standard (STCW 1995). Currently the channel has almost 37000 subscribers.

Dr Ghosh’s research focuses on investigating the impact of innovative training and assessment methods in seafarer education and training towards improving students’ academic achievement and overall engagement with learning. In this regard, he has also developed a conceptual framework to improve the validity and reliability of assessment. He also has keen interest in investigating the changing face of seafarer education due to automation in shipping and introduction of digital technologies.

Dr Ghosh is now actively collaborating with a start-up and corporate organisations to investigate methods in recognising inherent skills and capabilities in the workforce and assess its application in authentic workplace settings to be rewarded with digital badges and credentials which will enable professional and personal development.

His passion for research led him to found ‘Search Research’, a YouTube channel which provides free research tips and training to researchers and academics. Currently the channel has more than 500 subscribers.
