Existential Communication by Charles C Self( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on the seminal work "Being and Nothingness," this paper explores the implications of the ideas of Jean-Paul Sartre for the study of communication in society. The paper redefines communication from an existential point of view, explores some implications of this redefinition for the study of communication within the social setting, and reveals distinctions between this view and existing paradigms, including those of communication as cause, as pattern, as process, and as action.

An Overview of Educational Technologies and Implications for Staff Development at the Community College Level by Charles C Self( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The need for and uses of high technology delivery systems in education are discussed in this paper with respect to the community college level. After part I introduces the topic, part ii links the need for new technology in education to the change in the nature of knowledge from a small, relatively static corpus to a large and continually changing one, and to the shifts in the age distribution in the population, which has resulted in increasing numbers of older students interested in lifelong learning and education outside of the traditional school setting. Part iii considers the value of distance education, demonstrating its responsiveness to problems such as access, fear of returning to class, cost, student recruitment, and limited resources. Part iv reviews selected distance education technologies, including public broadcasting television, instructional television fixed services, cable television, video cassettes, video discs, teleconferencing, computer-assisted instruction, and data-based instruction. Each technology is considered in terms of its advantages, disadvantages, and uses. Part v analyzes difficulties in implementing these delivery systems, listing start-up costs, lack of faculty time and experience, and resistance on the part of the target group as the primary obstacles to be overcome. Finally, Part vi proposes the retraining of liberal arts faculty in community colleges as a key strategy in overcoming the obstacles related to the implementation of distance education technologies.

A Position on a Computer Literacy Course by Charles C Self( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A position is put forth on the appropriate content of a computer literacy course and the role of computer literacy in the community college. First, various definitions of computer literacy are examined, including the programming, computer awareness, and comprehensive approaches. Next, five essential components of a computer literacy course are identified, followed by extensive rationales for their inclusion. These components are: (1) programming skills in the basic language; (2) the ability to operate modern hardware and use existing software; (3) the ability to communicate with computer specialists using correct computer terminology; (4) knowledge of the social, political, and economic impact of computers; and (5) an abstract concept of how a computer operates. The rationale sections state that programming, for example, is included to narrow the educational gap between the affluent and disadvantaged; increase students' self-esteem; improve their understanding of mathematical concepts, thought-processing techniques, syntax, and logic; teach the limitations of the computer; and help students overcome fear of the machine. Next, the exclusion of other possible content areas, such as consumer awareness and the history of computers, is defended. Finally, the role of community colleges in promoting computer literacy is stressed, indicating that the most computer illiterate segment of society (I.E., those 35 and older) is the educational responsibility of the two-year college. A list of behavioral objectives for the proposed course is appended. (Ll)
Teaching Generalized Problem Solving and Science as a Process by Charles C Self( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two instructors at Bunker Hill Community College in Massachusetts have developed a unit of study designed to teach biology as a process, improve students' critical thinking and reasoning skills, and provide students with the opportunity to express these skills in writing. The instructional strategies employed in the unit are superimposed on a traditional and audio-tutorial biology course. Components of the unit, which are introduced throughout the term, include the following: (1) students are presented with two papers, a natural science study and a study pertaining to the field of science education, to help them begin to differentiate between the natural sciences and disciplines which used the procedures of science, and to acquaint the students with both the structure of an academic paper and the concept of a controlled experiment; (2) students meet in small learning groups to analyze the papers, uncover errors which could lead to an incorrect conclusion, and determine how these factors are controlled; and (3) students are given another set of scientific and nonscientific papers to look for errors in logic and experimental design and then asked to redesign the experiment. A preliminary study reveals some success with this inductive process. 18 references are included. (Ajl)
