Contributions of Computing to College Teaching and Learning Activities at the University of Michigan.
Zinn, Karl L.
Material on instructional computing drawn from various reports, surveys, and recommendations was assembled for use by the Communications Review Committee at the University of Michigan. The Committee was charged with the responsibility of examining the potential impact of media and instructional technology upon the University. A report, aimed at providing it with relevant information, begins with a brief history of the instructional use of computers at the University. This is followed by a section offering examples of instructional-related uses, including drill, skills practice, programed and dialog tutorials, testing and diagnosis, simulation, gaming, information processing, computation, problem solving, model construction, graphic display, the management of instructional resources, and the presentation and display of materials. The third segment relates activities at other universities, and the fourth reviews some conclusions from national studies. Recommendations for instructional computing are presented and the report concludes with a view of the future. Appendixes offer a bibliography on computers in college teaching, a review of University expenditures for instructional computing, and a list of University of Michigan schools and departments reporting the use of computers for instructional purposes.
