The Art of Science: Professionalism in CBI.
Allen, Michael W.
The members of the Association for the Development of Computer-Based Instructional Systems (ADCIS) are neither computer fanatics nor are they predominately members of any one profession; rather, they are a group of devoted humanitarians who are committed to finding realistic educational and training alternatives which (1) recognize individual differences, (2) do not confuse organizational discipline with instruction, and (3) are concerned with providing the appropriate instructional experience for everyone who wants to learn. The high priority issues ADCIS members must face are: (1) defining the most significant educational and training problems to be solved, (2) finding creative and logically superior solutions to those problems, and (3) comparing the outcomes of alternative solutions in a valid and persuasive manner. Unfortunately there is little progress being made in the first and third areas. ADCIS has the potential to help strengthen communication and the sharing of ideas; and it can help members assume a more scientific and objective posture, as well as formally encouraging research in priority areas in various ways.
