Constructing Humane Computing Environments in Educational Institutions.
Universities that have been successful in providing computing-intensive environments for their user communities have done so by setting up campuswide task forces on computing strategies. In this report, the principal investigator recommends that a task force on constructing humane computing environments at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) (Canada) be established. A framework of issues and themes to be debated and discussed in such a study is suggested for the potential use of prospective task force members. Critical questions that must be entertained and resolved in carrying out an assessment of institutional philosophy, and of the planning process for meeting the computing needs of an increasingly growing body of users, are listed. A synopsis of an important book, "Campus Computing Strategies," that outlines computer policy formulation activities at leading American universities is also provided. Finally, the current status of OISE computing hardware facilities (terminals and cable connections) is tabulated. (Author/TE)
