Computers and College Writing. Selected College Profiles.
Eisenberg, Nora, Ed.
This report contains profiles of computer-based writing programs at 49 colleges which were originally submitted for empirical assessment by a 3-year project sponsored by the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education and the City University of New York. The profiles, representing two-year and four-year, public and private, rural and urban, and small and large colleges, offer advice on topics such as: (1) setting up, expanding, or modifying writing programs with a computer component; (2) how much technical information to give novices in word processing and when to give it; (3) setting up laboratories, the arrangement of furniture, and the scheduling of courses; and (4) using the computer in the English class with a variety of target populations--basic writing students, learning disabled students, students in freshman composition and literature classes, and upper-level students. The descriptions are listed in alphabetical order by the name of the college. Each begins with a summary statement and provides the names and addresses of authors. (GL)
