Integrating Microcomputing into Preparation Programs.
Peseau, Bruce A.
This paper presents an example of a course syllabus that integrates the use of microcomputers as part of a recommendation that administrators become specialists in microcomputing in their preparatory programs. Computers' dramatically reduced costs, in combination with increased power, has made them easily available in the form of microcomputers. Administrators should have an understanding of the potential and processes involved in order to attain institutional objectives through institutional research--analysis and evaluaiton of the complex variables in a system's operation. Faculty in administrator preparation programs must reexamine curricula to identify appropriate areas where microcomputers will assist in developing administrators to become more skilled and effective. The course syllabus provided for resource management illustrates the scope and sequence of content, software used, the reading file, assignments and course requirements, and criteria for evaluation. The course syllabus and lists of software for the Apple II or IIc and for the IBM PC comprise three-fourths of the document. (CJH)
