Research on Technology Courses at Colleges of Education.
Leh, Amy Sheng Chieh
This study investigated the structure and content of technology courses at 25 colleges of education. Data were collected through interviews at two professional conventions, followed up by e-mail communication. Course syllabi were collected via e-mail and downloaded from the Internet. Two main types of teaching structures were found at the universities. The similarity of the two structures was that both consisted of lecture and lab; in the lecture, students learned computer concepts, and they conducted hand-on activities in the lab. The difference was in where the lectures was conducted, e.g., in a large lecture hall or in a computer lab where the instructors taught both concepts and skills. At all universities, the course content contained concepts and skills. Primary components included word processing, spreadsheet, database, multimedia, presentation, telecommunications, and World Wide Web page development. Web sites containing syllabi for several of the universities are listed. (MES)
