Using Microcomputer Simulations in the Classroom: Examples from Undergraduate and Faculty Computer Literacy Courses.
Hart, Jeffrey A.
Examples of the use of computer simulations in two undergraduate courses, (American Foreign Policy and Introduction to International Politics), and a faculty computer literacy course on simulations and artificial intelligence, are provided in this compilation of various instructional items. A list of computer simulations available for various mainframes and microcomputers provides information on software titles, appropriate hardware, vendors, and prices under the following headings: heads of state, nuclear war, conventional programs, submarine and naval, guerilla war, arms races, colonial war, ecological and environmental, elections and social choice, and miscellaneous. A list of vendor addresses and telephone numbers is followed by a copy of a handout given to students who were asked to use simulations in an Introduction to International Politics course. A course outline for a faculty computer literacy course on simulation and artificial intelligence concludes the paper. (LH)
