A Model for the Integration of a Computer Literacy Component into the General Education Curriculum.
Brady-Ciampa, Bartholomew
The use of a strategic planning model to integrate a computer literacy component into an established general education program is illustrated. Key issues are identified at each planning model stage, which consists of: identifying appropriate goals, writing objectives, developing an action plan, identifying options/alternatives, identifying contingencies/parameters, consulting with college constituencies, implementing the plan, and evaluating the progress of the plan. The outline includes questions that need to be addressed, including: whether goals are consistent with the institution's mission and resources; how many credits should be offered; which division and faculty members should be involved; when faculty inservice workshops should be scheduled; and when computer-related courses should be offered. Considerations and options that may be followed for each of these questions are also listed. In addition, the specific administrators and groups within the campus that need to be consulted are identified. Finally, evaluation areas are specified, including student demand, content covered, and instructor analysis of course's effectiveness. A flowchart of the planning process is included. (SW)
