- ItemOpen AccessBasic Education or Literacy'? Yes. In what Language'?(Lagos Education Review, 2002-06-06) Obashoro-John, O.A.Not all children of school age in Nigeria have access to school education. Not all those that have access complete their primary education. Those who complete their primary education can hardly read and understand adequately. Many of the adult Nigerians are illiterate in which the majority are women. This is the situation, despite previous efforts by the successive government towards mass education and literacy, One major problem in the past effort is the deliberate elevation of English Language fit the expense of Nigerian languages. For the future, one would expect fa see a systematic encouragement of teaching in Nigerian languages. These languages should be introduced as a medium of administration, so as to bring the administrator closer to his subject, thereby giving the masses the right to express themselves.

- ItemOpen AccessReinforcing the Universal Basic Education through adult and non-formal education. International Journal of Literacy and non-formal education.(Department of Adult Education, University of Ibadan, 2007-06-01) Ememe, P.I.This paper is an attempt to ascertain the extent of the relationship between universal basic education and adult and non-formal education with a view to establishing how adult and non-formal education can be repositioned to contribute meaningfully to the achievement of the goals of universal basic education. To achieve this end, the paper believes that the present status of adult and non-formal education in Nigeria should be revisited to accord it the right recognition it deserves. Adult and non-formal education should be made an integral part of the formal school system if it is to be used as a tool in the universal basic education scheme. It is only through this that it can help in enhancing access to education, improve quality and quantity of education and reduce drastically the rate of illiteracy and disparity in education.
- ItemOpen AccessThe Adult Learners’ Relationship with Information Communication Technology (ICT) and its Implications for Adult and Non-Formal Education(Ibadan: The Adult Education Department, University of Ibadan., 2008-01) Bakare, T.V.This study was survey in nature and investigated the adult learners’ familiarity with, access to, and use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) gadgets and its implication for adult education practice. Five research questions were generated to guide the study. The questions were to establish the extent of familiarity with, ownership of, or access to and use of some computerized technology tools for various purposes. Data for analysis were collected with the use of the self validated instrument – Adult Learners’ relationship with ICT (ALFICT). Four major adult education programs were used for the study. Out of these programs, purposive sampling technique was used to select 300 adult learners randomly to constitute the sample size (according to their population and also propensity for use in the different programs). Data obtained were treated using descriptive statistics and data were graphically presented. Results of the analysis indicated that 79.7% of the respondents were familiar with ICT and other gadgets. 42% had access to the gadgets and 38% used them. This implies that the number of adult learners who have access to or use ICT tools generally was relatively low. The awareness and utilization patterns call for more concerted efforts on the part of all stakeholders to make ICT more accessible to adult learners at all levels, along with awareness programs and to make ICT and gadgets more user-friendly and accessible. The study underscored the importance of adult education in Nigeria, moving into the 21st century and the computer age, especially in order to expand the learning paradigm and create more learning opportunities for all.

- ItemOpen AccessHumanistic Model in Adult Education and Science and Technology: Challenges of the 21st Century Developing Nation(Universal Academic Services, 2011) Isichei, F.M; Anyikwa, E.BThat humankind overcomes the terrible threats of boredom, meaninglessness and dehumanizing state of contemporary world is the result of the scientific and technological advancement, this paper considers humanistic model in adult education as liberal education appropriate for adult age. Using the humanistic model, adult education is discussed as a deliberate and systematically planned educational activity targeted at and designed around the interest and self-expressed concern of, the adult for solving their immediate problems with educational activity that is part-time. An integrated education is proposed for an integrated humanism in this age of science and technology because it liberates humans for self-awareness which is the sum of consciousness with intelligent active nature, free-will with the drive towards self-actualization, social dimension, self-maintenance and self-enhancement. This education sets humans apart from other animals and must bring to an end the cleavage between work or useful activity and the blossoming of spiritual life and disinterested joy in knowledge and beauty, which is to perceive the genuinely democratic character of education in an age of science and technology. The paper did recognize the challenges of the 21st century developing nations in terms of infrastructures and educational management.
- ItemOpen AccessUse of Teaching Methods and Approach in the Nigerian University System: The curriculum and Policy Implications for Change(Clute Institute, Colorado: Littleton, USA, 2011) Bakare, T.V.Teaching method and approach are vital to the education delivery at the tertiary level. The Nigerian National Policy on Education influences the teaching/learning curriculum and method have been found to contribute to the teaching/learning outcomes at the University level in Nigeria. This study surveyed popular teaching methods at the undergraduate level in Universities within the South-West geo-political zone in Nigeria. Multistage sampling technique was adopted while proportionate sampling was utilized to select two Universities each from the Federal, State and Private sectors. Using stratified random sampling technique, 270 Lecturers were selected from those Universities to participate in the study. The standardized test Principles of Adult Learning Scale (PALS) was adapted to suit the Nigerian situation and used for the study. There was also a Sit-in-Observation/Interview schedule. Findings revealed that the popular method of teaching used by Lecturers tended towards teacher-centered pedagogy. This is not in consonance with the principles of andragogy. The fact that a teaching background is not emphasized along with the stipulated Ph.D degree for Lecturers may be a contributory factor to the present state of affairs. It was therefore recommended that lecturers be encouraged to obtain a diploma in the art of working with adult learners and also focus more on getting the learners to be more self directing in learning.
