Penrod, James I., Ed.
The Summer Institute of Computer Literacy, held at Pepperdine University in 1982, dealt with the uses of computing in higher education administration. These proceedings contain papers from presenters at the Institute. Every presentation paper could not be obtained; in such cases permission was secured to print a previously published paper authored by the presenter on the same topic. The papers include: (1) "Computer Literacy: How Do Universities and Colleges Prepare?" (Arthur Luehrmann); (2) "A Technical Introduction to Computing" (Michael M. Roberts); (3) "An Overview of Computing in Higher Education" (Charles R. Thomas); (4) "Modeling and Simulation" (Daniel A. Updegrove); (5) "The Automated Office" (Samuel J. Kalow); (6) "Planning for Integrated Campus Information Systems" (John W. McCredie); (7) "Data Base Management Systems" (John W. McCredie); (8) "A Plan for Action" (John F. McManus); (9) "Decision Support Systems" (Larry N. Craft); (10) "Social, Ethical, and Legal Issues of Computing" (Kenneth H. York); (11) "A Telecommunications Survey" (Paul S. Heller); (12) "The Commitment of Pepperdine University to Computer Literacy" (Howard A White); and (13) "The University Computer Challenge" (Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber). The concluding chapter, "Synopsis of an Institute" (James I. Penrod) contains a capsule report of the primary points of each presentation as given during the institute. (JB)
