Development and Dissemination of a Manual for Developing Coal Mining Curricula. Final Report.
Oglesby, Elizabeth H.; Katz, D. S.
This report describes and summarizes the purposes, activities, major findings, and recommendations of three coal-related study reports: (1) An Assessment of Employment and Training needs for Coal and Gasification Occupations, (2) A Manual for Competency-Matched Instructional Resources for Developing Coal Mining Curricula, and (3) The Preparation and Dissemination of a Manual for Use in Planning Competency-Based Underground Coal Mining Curricula. The first report summary presents information on present and projected labor needs for the coal mining and gasification occupations in Illinois, an assessment of training resources presently available, and recommendations concerning development of additional training programs at the secondary and postsecondary levels. The second report summary outlines the development of a manual of coal mining occupational competencies, rank ordered by a technical advisory group of coal mining experts as to importance for entry-level coal mining curricula. (Each competency was matched with instructional materials for teaching of the competency, and a descriptive listing of the multimedia instructional materials was presented.) The third report describes the conversion of the final report of the second project into the curriculum planning manual for use by local education personnel. (The manual was presented, explained, and distributed in two dissemination workshops.) (JH)
