The Computer, the Discipline and the Classroom: Two Perspectives.
Thurber, Bart; Pope, Jack
The authors present two case studies in the use of computers in the classroom, one involving an introductory computer science class, the other an upper division literature class. After describing each case, the differences are discussed, showing that pedagogical models developed for one discipline may not transfer to another, and that the discipline itself, beyond instructor's preferences or institutional policies, may determine what works and what does not.
