Leadership Training in Computer Technology. Final Report.
American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, Rockville, MD.
This report describes a project designed to promote infusion of computer technology into graduate-level curricula in communication disorders (Here often called "Communication Sciences and Disorders"). The Leadership Project's major goal was to improve the training of doctoral level faculty, administrators, and researchers in the uses of microcomputers by planning, conducting, and evaluating workshops; developing materials; and disseminating information for the faculty and other personnel. The five-phase workshops established a common knowledge base among participants, provided information on the implications of computer technology, addressed problems of change in computer technology, considered fundamental issues for incorporating computer technology into curricula, and provided exemplars of solutions to issues raised in the workshops. This report briefly discusses workshop objectives and format. An infusion guide, for facilitating the infusion of computer technology into the graduate level curricula in communication disorders, is presented. The workshops received generally positive evaluations, and participants have established a network to promote awareness of activity in other programs. Two papers, "Faculty Development in Computer Technology: One University's Experience" (N. Bartel) and "Technological Change and the Future" (H. Niebuhr, Jr.), are included in the appendices as well as a list of workshop participants and a workshop agenda. (CB)
