The Role of Academic Computer Departments in the Uses of Computers in the Undergraduate Curricula at the Two-Year College Level.
Little, Joyce Currie
Academic computer departments, whether called by this name or by others such as the department of computer science or data programing, can be of great assistance to other departments in the two-year college. Faculty in other departments need to know about computer applications in their fields, require assistance in the development of curriculum content and software for computer-assisted instruction, and need specialized help from people like programers for the achievement of specific objectives. The computer science department should make other departments aware of what hardware resources and services are available, should upgrade the computing skills of the faculty at large and, most importantly, should provide personnel who can make the computer meaningful to the entire academic curriculum. It is usually most helpful when the computer science department develops courses tailored to the academic needs of other disciplines, encouraging joint sponsorship whenever feasible, maintains a clearinghouse of information on computer applications in various subject areas, and lends its students to projects in other departments when their assistance is useful.
