||This report is intended to help mine safety trainers better prepare to teach new underground coal miners who are entering the industry. The traditional approach is based on the use of a syllabus. Those using a syllabus are more likely to rely on lecturing or direct instruction. This is a good way to get across factual information, but does not provide a context within which miners can fit the discrete facts so that they form an integrated whole set of concepts, principles, and skills. An alternative approach to new miner training is to develop a curriculum, which may be defined as a plan of instruction that details what students are to know, how they are to learn it, what the teacher's role is, and the context in which learning and teaching will take place. A curriculum-based training will be more likely to help miners integrate concepts and skills that give them an overall picture of the complex mining environment and how they fit into the workplace.
