Turning Computerphobes into Computerphiles.
Lee, Helen C.
Strategies used to encourage college faculty to increase their knowledge of computers are discussed. A course offered by Indiana University-Purdue University followed the guidelines of making college teachers confident in their use of the computer. Computer jargon was not used, and terms like "computer literacy," were dispensed with. Sessions were as practical as possible, confronting real problems of the faculty. Entertaining, clearly written, and informative handouts were used, and class instructors adopted a playful light-hearted attitude toward the class. Classes were small so that individual attention and hands-on experience were possible. The class's six sessions, each lasting two hours, are briefly described. (CB)
