Consistency, the Hobgoblin of the Petty Mind or In Support of Eclecticism.
Ruplin, Ferdinand A.
Beginning with a review of current student attitudes on the campus toward foreign languages, language teachers, and teaching methods, this article discusses the nature and success of a computer-assisted instructional program in German under development since 1965 at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, Long Island. The multi-media program for beginning students is outlined and includes sample materials. Comments made by students concerning their experience with the computer are included. Innovative approaches for use in further refinement of individualized language programs of this type are suggested. (RL)
