Diffusion of Computer Utilization Among Sociology Instructors. Anderson, R. E Computers and the Humanities, 10(4):201--207, 1976.
abstract   bibtex   
Facilitating as well as inhibiting factors underlie the adoption of educational computing innovations. A survey of 213 graduate-degree offering sociology departments found approximately 8% of the instructors utilizing computers for instruction. Responses from 225 of these sociology instructors provide a profile of how computer techniques are integrated into a variety of sociology courses. Instructors utilizing computers for instruction tend to be low in academic rank and in years since the Ph.D. This is probably a consequence of differential training and perhaps of the assignment of lower rank instructors to methods and statistics courses. As computer technology continues to expand some of these patterns of adoption may persist
