Abstract: Audio visual education that incorporates devices and materials which involve sight, sound, or both has become a sine qua non in recent times in the teaching and learning process. An automated physical model of mining methods aided with video instructions was designed and constructed by harnessing locally available art materials and scraps. The ultimate goal of the resulting simulator is to enhance teaching and learning of surface and underground mining methods. Questionnaire was administered to students at the University of Mines and Technology (UMaT), Tarkwa to assess the effectiveness of the simulator. Statistical analyses of responses from the students show that a significant percentage (97%) appreciates the usefulness of the simulator in the teaching and learning of mining methods.
