Team Teaching an Advanced Computer Fluency Course: A Composite Perspective
InSITE 2003 • Volume 3 • 2003
This paper discusses the observations of six instructors who team-taught an advanced computer fluency course over a period of three years. The course exposed students to complex information technology applications, such as geographic information and molecular design systems, in specific professional domains. One of the main goals of the course was to give students a glimpse at real-world applications of information technology aimed at solving complex problems. In addition to providing personal observations we summarize some of the problems that were encountered and how we addressed them. Also, the result of analyzing some preliminary data is discussed. The goal is to assist other instructors who might be interested in designing/teaching a similar course.
