AVAILABILITY AND UTILIZATION OF INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS IN A NORTH-WEST SCHOOL OF NURSING, NIGERIA

 

 

ABSTRACT

Instructional materials promote efficiency of education by improving the quality of teaching and learning, yet one of the major problems teachers and students encounter in our educational system in Nigeria includes inadequate teaching and learning materials. Hence, this study explores the availability and utilization of instructional materials. The study adopts a descriptive survey design. Instrument for data collection was a check-list and two set of questionnaires for the students and tutors. The sample for the study was arrived at using Yamane’s formula where a total of thirty-one (31) tutors and one hundred and nineteen (119) students responded to the questionnaires. Data collected was analyzed using SPSS version 24.0 where a four scale Likert chat was interpreted using a mean standard of three (3) as reference point for accepting or rejecting each average mean. Findings among others show that apart from white boards for makers and anatomical models of various human organs that are adequately available, only few (35.5%) instructional materials are available and majority (67.2%) of the tutors do not utilize instructional materials in the course of teaching. The study concluded that tutors should be encouraged and monitored on the utilization of instructional materials and It was recommended that adequate instructional materials should be provided by the management of the institution in the course of teaching-learning Nursing.
