Report of the Computer Assisted Instruction Project in the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary.
Hannah, Kathryn
Since August of 1976, the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Calgary has developed and implemented a four-phase computer assisted instruction (CAI) project. In Phase I, the pilot project to demonstrate effectiveness of CAI as an alternative teaching strategy in that setting has been completed and replication is on-going. In Phase II, identification of areas in the curriculum which could be effectively taught using CAI is currently being surveyed; and an inventory of nursing-related CAI programs in North America is to begin in January 1978. In Phase III, acquisition of computer terminals for the Faculty of Nursing's Learning Resource Center has been accomplished; acquisition of CAI lessons from external sources is awaiting the completion of Phase II; and the development of CAI lessons is in progress. Preliminary discussions have taken place about the delivery of CAI-based courses for credit to nurses in rural Alberta; this will be Phase IV of the project. (VT)
