Computer-Based Education in Nursing.
Sparks, Susan M.
This report describes instructional uses of computers, interactive videodisks, and related technologies in undergraduate and graduate nursing education and in continuing education and faculty development. Its principal aims are to document ongoing activities, to identify factors that inhibit technological applications in nursing education, and to suggest measures that might increase such applications. The report begins with a discussion of faculty and student involvement in computer-based education (CBE). This is followed by sections on the development, implementation, and evaluation of CBE materials; commercially available instructional software and hardware; and facilities. Miscellaneous resources such as organizations, consortia, and journals are noted. Glimpses of the near future of nursing education and the potential influences of educational technologies in that future are offered. The report concludes with a listing of constraints associated with CBE technologies and potential responses to alleviate or eliminate them. An annotated bibliography of frequently-cited publications is included. (49 references) (GL)
