TECHNIQUES NEEDED FOR IMPROVING TEACHING AND LEARNING OF ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY IN TECHNICAL COLLEGES

CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
Background of the Study
Technical colleges are institutions that provide secondary level education in technical education. Technical education according to Federal Republic of Nigeria (2004) is that aspect of education that leads to the acquisition of practical and applied skills as well as basic scientific knowledge. In the same vein, (UNESCO, 2007), defined technical and vocational education as a omprehensive term referring to those aspect of educational process involving, in addition to general education the acquisition of practical skills, attitudes and understanding of knowledge relating to educational life.

The aim of technical colleges is to produce graduates with saleable skills, knowledge and attitude necessary for effective employment and who can actually function well in their place of employment. In technical colleges, technical teachers give training in various disciplines such as woodwork, metalwork, building and electrical/electronic technology to mention but a few (Adeyemi & Uko-Aviomoh, 2004). Each of the above disciplines (including electrical technology) is usually headed by the most senior teacher usually referred to as the head of department.

Electrical technology according to Alegbemi (2010) is that aspect of technical education which deals primarily with electricity and principles of magnetism and devoted to the utilization of forces of nature and materials for the benefits of mankind. Some of the training received in Nigeria schools under technical education in electrical/electronic technology includes; electrical
installation and maintenance, radio, television and electronic work instruments mechanism, domestic appliance repair, machine and power engineering, electronics and communication, instrumentation and control.

TECHNIQUES NEEDED FOR IMPROVING TEACHING AND LEARNING OF ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY IN TECHNICAL COLLEGES

Statement of the Problem
Over the past three decades or so, the achievements of Ondo State Technical College Students in both National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) and teacher-made examinations have shown considerable and progressive deterioration, especially in the area of electrical technology. This problem is considered serious enough that in 2010 and 2011 National Business and Technical Examination Board (NABTEB) conference dwelt on this issue. The
NABTEB Chief examiner’s report and experience of the majority of electrical
technology teachers confirmed the observation.

Consequent upon the observed deterioration in students’ achievement in both internal and external examinations, the feeling is that the electrical technology teachers in technical colleges in ondo State lack workshop management techniques in teaching of electrical technology
in the schools.

Unfortunately, the management of electrical technology workshop by the teachers in technical colleges in Ondo State leaves a lot to be desired. The task of this study therefore is to identify workshop management techniques needed to improve the teaching of electrical technology in technical colleges in Ondo State.

TECHNIQUES NEEDED FOR IMPROVING TEACHING AND LEARNING OF ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY IN TECHNICAL COLLEGES

purpose of the Study 

The general purpose of this study is to find out techniques needed for improving the teaching of electrical technology in technical colleges in Ondo State. Specifically, the study is designed to identify:

  1. The workshop planning techniques needed by electrical technology teachers for improving their teaching in electrical workshops in technical colleges in Ondo state
  2. The workshop organizing techniques needed by electrical technology teachers for improving their teaching in electrical workshops in technical colleges in Ondo State.
  3. The workshop coordinating techniques needed by electrical technology teachers for improving their teaching in electrical workshops in technical colleges in Ondo State.
  4. The workshop techniques for implementing workshop instruction needed by electrical technology teachers for improving their teaching in electrical workshops in technical colleges in Ondo State.

Significance of the Study
The findings of the study will be of immense benefit to the following; electrical technology teachers, electrical technology students, principals of technical colleges, Ondo State Science and Technical Education board (OSSTEB)and National Board for Technical Education (NBTE).
