A Department-Wide Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory Using Microcomputers.
Levy, C. Michael
Time, space, money, and educational opportunities were the four major factors considered in upgrading the individual teaching labs at the University of Florida. The program incorporates the use of single processor microcomputers to teach a variety of courses. Software developed for a course on cognition and perception will set up a ready to run experiment, present the stimuli, collect the data responses, and do a number of transformations of the raw data. The essence of the approach is the use of the computer as the students' personal lab assistant--the students can serve either as the subject or the experimenter. Another approach uses the comouter and videotape in combination to solve problems. The costs of setting up a computer-based undergraduate teaching lab are also briefly discussed, as well as the availability of instructional courseware. (JEG)
