This course curriculum is intended for community college instructors and administrators to use in implementing a principles of information processing course. A student's course syllabus provides this information: credit hours, catalog description, prerequisites, required texts, instructional process, objectives, student evaluation, and class schedule. A student lecture guide consists of a sheet for each of the 10 units with unit contents, unit objectives, rationale, learning activities, vocabulary, and evaluation. Unit topics are as follows: development of word and information processing; software and its uses; hardware components (displays, keyboards, processors, and storage); hardware categories and their evolution; voice processing; peripherals (printers, optical character readers, and image processors); technology for electronic distribution/communications; distribution/communication; information retrieval; and integration of office automation. A student lab guide provides this information for each of the four lab assignments: objectives, required equipment and materials, learning activities, steps, and evaluation. The instructor's course syllabus outlines prerequisites, required texts, references, required equipment and materials, instructional process, and student evaluation. Competency statements and a course outline are included. The instructor's guide presents this information for each unit: contents, objectives, required equipment and materials, procedures, learning activities, and evaluation. (YLB)
