The Application of Computers in Liberal Arts Instruction. A Computer Literacy Faculty Development Project.
Anderson, Gary C.
In January 1983, Hamline University received a grant from the Exxon Corporation for a computer literacy faculty development project which involved three main activities: faculty workshops, faculty development projects, and hardware/software/courseware acquisitions. A series of four faculty workshops were offered during the 2-year grant period; most presenters were the recipients of Exxon grant stipends for faculty development projects, but some other knowledgeable faculty also made presentations. The last two workshops provided an opportunity for "hands-on" computer experiences on a variety of available computer systems. Approximately half of the grant monies funded 16 faculty members in a variety of academic fields (science and non-science) for projects designed with the objectives of developing faculty (and hence, student) awareness, skill, and knowledge in the application of computers in the classroom. A description of each of these 16 projects, including necessary hardware and software, is provided. (JB)
