A Plan for Community College Instructional Computing.
Howard, Alan; And Others
This document presents a comprehensive plan for future growth in instructional computing in the Washington community colleges. Two chapters define the curriculum objectives and content recommended for instructional courses in the community colleges which require access to computing facilities. The courses described include data processing technology, problem solving, general introduction to computers and computing, and computer science. The use of computers as adjuncts to classes is considered in sections on computer assisted instruction, computer based instruction, and computer managed instruction. Other chapters define the software, hardware, peopleware and other support required to adequately meet the requirements of the identified course contents and objectives. The final chapter presents the resource specification and acquisition procedures which will permit the community colleges to move from the present level of fragmented, individualized approaches to meeting the instructional computing needs of students, to a planned and coordinated distributed computing network of compatable hardware and software, and to a more efficient utilization of total state computing resources. A glossary and bibliography are appended. (Author/DC)
