Curricula and Learning

Computer Support for Collaborative Learning
Web Site for the Dec 1997 meeting in Toronto. Topics are a good introduction to where current activity is.
Learning Technology Research Institute
This institute is just starting up as of Nov. 1997. "The new non-profit organization will focus on software tools and instructional methodologies designed both to add value to the traditional classroom learning experience and create affordable and effective learning environments beyond the boundaries of the traditional classroom, library, and laboratory.
Informatics Curriculum
Informatics elements of a medical school predoctoral managed care curriculum. Written in May of 1996 it's slightly dated but has much overlap with this material.
