Massification and quality in tertiary education: the Nigerian experience.

Fabiyi, Ann; Uzoka, Ngozi

Abstract:
This paper reports on the findings of a survey that delved into the impact of expanding student enrollment on quality assurance in Nigeria. Starting with a brief on the historical development and management of the Nigerian higher education system, the paper addresses questions pertaining to student-lecturer ratios; lecturers’ assessment of their workload; and the relationship between the availability of resources and quality of teaching in higher education. Data were collected from 432 respondents drawn from six higher education institutions and the findings were that: student-lecturer ratios are too large for quality assurance, especially in the Arts; and that the lecturers do not have sufficient contact with their students.
