A FEASIBILITY STUDY IN EFFICIENT INSTRUCTIONAL USE OF DIGITAL COMPUTERS.
HOWELL, JOHN M.
THROUGH A REVIEW OF LITERATURE, STUDIES OF EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, AND VISITS TO JUNIOR COLLEGES IN WASHINGTON AND CALIFORNIA, GUIDELINES WERE DEVELOPED FOR DATA PROCESSING PROGRAMS IN THE LOS ANGELES JUNIOR COLLEGES. ACCORDING TO ONE STUDY, IN BUSINESS APPLICATIONS, 70 PERCENT OF EMPLOYEES HAD A.A. DEGREES OR LESS. IN SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS, 13 PERCENT HAD SIMILAR TRAINING. ANNUALLY, APPROXIMATELY 4,000 JOB OPENINGS ARE AVAILABLE IN LOS ANGELES FOR DATA PROCESSING GRADUATES. EIGHTY-EIGHT PERCENT OF RESPONDENTS TO A SURVEY WERE WILLING TO EMPLOY GRADUATES OF JUNIOR COLLEGE DATA PROCESSING PROGRAMS. SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS ARE NEEDED FOR BUSINESS AND SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS, AND FOR COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY SERVICES, WITH PROGRAMS FOR SPECIAL NEED OF TRANSFER STUDENTS. EACH LOS ANGELES JUNIOR COLLEGE SHOULD HAVE A DATA PROCESSING CENTER WITH A LIBRARY WORK CENTER. LABORATORY HOURS SHOULD BE INCREASED IN ALL PHASES OF THE PROGRAM. MOST EFFECTIVE TEACHING IS DONE BY PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS WITH SPECIALIZED DATA PROCESSING BACKGROUND. CURRICULUM PROPOSALS, FACILITY LAYOUTS, AND BIBLIOGRAPHY ARE INCLUDED. (WO)
