Teaching Psychology Students Computer Applications.
Atnip, Gilbert W.
This paper describes an undergraduate-level course designed to teach the applications of computers that are most relevant in the social sciences, especially psychology. After an introduction to the basic concepts and terminology of computing, separate units were devoted to word processing, data analysis, data acquisition, artificial intelligence, and simulation and modeling. Each unit began with a classroom discussion and demonstration of a relevant program. Students then completed an out-of-class assignment using the program. Each student also conducted an independent research project that incorporated the skills taught in the course. Both students and instructor evaluated the course very favorably, and it is recommended that other institutions consider establishing similar courses. (Author/JB)
