Teikyo Post University requires a three credit course in computer literacy as part of its general education core. Every freshman must either pass a waiver examination in computer literacy or successfully complete CIS 112, Introduction to Computers. There is a need to continuously examine the content of these courses as definitions of computer literacy change due to students entering college with greater fluency and technology changes. The workshop will develop a definition for computer literacy that can be applied to plan, deliver, and assess a course resulting in computer literacy/fluency at the college level.

Keywords: literacy, general education
