Computer Art--A New Course Offering for General Education.
Hertlein, Grace C.
The developmental background and rationale are given for an introductory course in computers. Using computer art as the vehicle for instruction, this course is designed for people in disciplines other than computer science. The 16-week course syllabus described contains a weekly lecture, laboratory activities, assignments, and final exams. Several tested approaches which have led to the course's success in the past include (1) thinking about computers in English, (2) using canned programs which students learn to use and adapt for their own purposes, (3) using debugging techniques different from the traditional methods, (4) using a varied menu approach in each lab session, and (5) stressing group learning, helping, and working.
