Introductory Seminar
Friday 20 March 1992, 10.30am to 4.00pm

The CTI Centre is holding an introductory seminar to enable lecturers in
higher education institutions to learn about our work. In the morning
there will be a series of talks and discussion sessions about various
aspects of the use of computers in higher education teaching: practical,
pedagogic, political, institutional, etc. In the afternoon we will
demonstrate some of the hardware, software, and courseware available for
higher education teaching. There will be opportunity for participants
to try out some of the packages for themselves. No previous knowlede of
