Summary

The application of computers and information science to health and human service graduate studies at St. Mary's College is described. The programs are built on a microcomputer hardware and software base and draw on national database utilities to facilitate instructor-student communication as well as access to typical library data. The program design is based on information-related functions commonly performed by the professional health of human service manager. Each program topic is introduced by practitioner-faculty members who train students in software use by giving examples from their own experience. Students work independently or in small groups under the guidance of a preceptor to produce management analyses or plans that usually have a practical focus. Students are trained to use DIALOG and are helped in problem-solving and thesis research. Telecommunications links between remote sites and the college mainframe computer provide access to recordkeeping, budget management, and computer services. The performance of the program was measured using student evaluations, outside examiners, and graduate follow-up data. The program also shows significant cost savings when compared to traditional on-campus instruction. (SW)
