Technologies for instruction as innovative strategies in higher education: A Nigerian perspective

Adegbija, Mosiforeba Victoria

Abstract:
This paper examined the technologies for instruction as innovative strategies in higher education from a Nigerian perspective. Heinich, Molenda, Russell & Smaldino (2002) described technologies for instruction as the specific teaching – learning patterns that serve reliably as templates for achieving demonstrably effective learning. It is the application of modern tools, technical/technological knowledge and methods as a unit for a common goal to achieve specified instructional objectives. Higher education in most African/developing countries is currently going through its most challenging and depressive situation due to unprecedented high demand of youths for admission into tertiary institutions; lack of funding which is reported to be below UNESCO recommendation; etc. Since it has been shown that technologies for instruction have been used by the developed countries over the years, to address and overcome these challenges, it was recommended that government should enforce training and retraining of teachers and learners in computer literacy, government and other stake holders in higher education sector should procure and be involved in producing technology materials for teaching and learning, and to begin to make computer literacy a prerequisite for employment and promotions.
