Peel, Mark S.
A project was undertaken at the State University of New York, Agricultural and Technical College, Delhi Campus, to implement an accessible, minimum computer capability to support intensive curriculum and staff development activities which would update faculty, programs, and courses in the practical applications of computer technology. To accomplish this, objectives and activities were identified in four primary areas: (1) to acquire the necessary computer hardware to establish a readily accessible academic computing capability; (2) to prepare and involve faculty, initially a core group, in the use of computing in instruction with an emphasis on instructional demonstration and practical applications; (3) to conduct curriculum development activities to incorporate computer appreciation, literacy, and competence into the college's programs and courses; and (4) to design, implement, and promote an organized set of academic computing services to support the educational needs and interests of students and faculty (e.g., instructional development, computer-managed instruction, in-service workshops, orientations, publications, library support materials, microcomputer loan program, repair and maintenance). This report describes the accomplishments of the Delhi Campus with respect to these objectives and includes descriptions of the in-service workshops, a list of math and science courses, a list of computer applications by course, instruments for the Learning Resources Survey and student survey on academic computing, a program and evaluation of a dissemination conference, and project consultant summaries.
