  • Inclusive Education Status through the Lenses of Teachers in Zambia

    • Authors: Kenneth Kapalu Muzata, Francis Simui, Dikeledi Mahlo, Phydes Ng’uni
      Pages: 1 - 20
      Abstract: This study was conducted to examine the status of inclusive education in Zambia, learning from teachers’ perspectives about how inclusive education is being implemented and the whether teachers receive adequate support to implement inclusive education to learners with disabilities. The study employed a concurrent mixed design approach in which both quantitative and qualitative data were generated and applied. Open and closed ended questionnaires were used to collect data from teachers that were upgrading their qualifications via distance education at Kwame Nkrumah University, University of Zambia and Chalimbana University. Findings indicated that Zambia practices partial inclusion in which only the mild and moderate learners with disabilities are included in classrooms. Inclusive education is understood by teachers in the context of disability and teachers reported that they did not receive adequate support to implement inclusive education effectively. It is recommended that the Government of the Republic of Zambia through the Ministry of General Education should focus on training teachers in inclusive education and its methodologies to meet the learning needs of learners from different circumstances

  • Inclusive Physical Education During the University Preparation Programme
           in Ghana: Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Practice

    • Authors: Regina Akuffo Darko, Jane Mwangi, Lucy Joy Wachira
      Pages: 21 - 37
      Abstract: Hands-on experience plays a key role in every teacher education programme as it helps the prospective teacher to experience a real world of teaching rather than in abstract. One of the most difficult aspects of inclusive teacher education programmes is capacitating pre-service teachers to practice inclusion in the classroom in real live conditions. This study aimed at evaluating student-teachers’ hands-on experiences in inclusive practical PE lessons during their university preparation programme using sequential mixed-method design. 152 PE student-teachers’ in level 300 from the two universities who train PE teachers in Ghana were purposively sampled for this study. Quantitative data was collected using questionnaires while qualitative data was collected through focus group discussion with 20 of the same participants. Quantitative data were analysed using means and standard deviation and presented in tables. Inferential statistics of independent t-test was used to ascertain the mean difference between student-teachers’ hands-on experiences. Qualitative data were transcribed verbatim with trustworthiness assured through peer debriefing and member checking. Both quantitative and qualitative results showed that the university preparation programme has no practical component for inclusion in PE. Student-teachers’ hands-on teaching experience in inclusive practical PE was found to be inadequate. However, a significant difference (t (-4.020) at df (32.9), p< .005) was found between the two institutions.  The study concludes that the preparation programme in the universities does not give student-teachers’ adequate inclusive practical exposure. To make inclusion experience more viable to student-teachers’, it is recommended that inclusive experiences should be incorporated into student-teachers’ on-campus teaching practice and all practical courses to help bridge the gap between theory and practice.

  • Newly Qualified Female Teachers’ Perception of Teaching Practicum as a
           Component of Initial Teacher Education in South Africa

    • Authors: Charmaine Helena Iwu
      Pages: 38 - 69
      Abstract: This study was undertaken with the aim of understanding how newly qualified female teachers perceive teaching practicum in the South African context. Teaching Practicum is a vital component of the initial teacher education (ITE) programme because it enriches future teachers’ knowledge, skills and abilities towards a lifelong career in the teaching profession. Teachers make valuable contributions to the growth of any nation as they help produce future leaders. It is therefore necessary to have a competent teaching workforce to improve pass rates as well as reduce dropout rates among learners. The study took the qualitative deductive premise making use of semi-structured interviews to collect data from more than 30 novice teachers. Key words, which helped in the identification of themes, were distilled from the responses. A core overall finding of the study point to a mix of experiences - benefits and shortcomings - which not only affect the development of prospective teachers but also have profound implications for both policy enhancement and implementation. Regarding policy enhancement and implementation, it is suggested that universities and schools where novice teachers are posted for teaching practice should have good relations for support advancements. In this case, it is advised that the novice teachers should be exposed to critical mentoring opportunities to allow for clearer understanding of the real classroom scope. This study believes that for this to be fruitful, schools should among others be well-equipped. Suggestions for further research are also flagged. .

  • Postsecondary Entrance Examinations in Nigeria: A Critical Analysis of the
           Design and Predictive Validity of the Tripartite Assessment System

    • Authors: Monsurat Omobola Raji
      Pages: 70 - 86
      Abstract: Admission into post-secondary education requires the fulfillment of specific standards or criteria by prospective candidates. Criteria include, but are not limited to, standardized examinations, resumes, intent statements, tests, interviews, etc. In Nigeria, prospective students must pass three examinations as part of the admission process into post-secondary programs. Reports suggest these examinations lack the best design features and have very low predictive validity in student success in post-secondary programs and their job roles after graduation. This paper critically evaluates the design features of SSCE, UTME, and PUTME in the context of Nigeria and their predictive validity towards student learning and success as graduates. Implications of the Nigerian post-secondary entrance assessment system are discussed. Recommendations are offered from two jurisdictional models to improve the current status of the tripartite post-secondary entrance assessment system in Nigeria.

  • Modelling in Teacher Education: Beliefs of Teacher Educators in Rwanda

    • Authors: Emmanuel Niyibizi
      Pages: 87 - 105
      Abstract: The study aims to explore teacher educators’ beliefs about role modelling in teacher education in Rwanda. This study hopes to contribute to filling the gap created by limited empirical study available on teacher educators and the relevance of role modelling for high quality teacher training. The study was designed as an exploratory qualitative research using semi-structured interviews of 20 purposively and conveniently selected teacher educators. Content analysis was used to analyze collected data. The findings reveal that participating teacher educators believe that role modelling is an important component in the process of teaching teachers. Moreover, participants hold beliefs about role modelling as implicit exemplar practices and behavior. They think that teaching teachers involves not only providing knowledge but also serving as a good example in both teaching practices and behavior at training institutions as well as in the society. The study concludes that both implicit and explicit modelling should be included in the overall reflections of policy, research and practice of pedagogy of teacher education and especially in the professional development of teacher educators. Further empirical studies are recommended about the implications of implicit modelling on student teachers’ learning outcomes.

  • Effect of Visualised Case-Based Learning Strategy On Students’ Academic
           Performance in Chemistry in Ibadan Metropolis, Nigeria

    • Authors: Mabel Ihuoma Idika
      Pages: 106 - 126
      Abstract: This study investigated the effect of the use of visualized case-based learning (VCBL) strategy on chemistry students’ academic achievement. The theoretical framework for this study is based on Thorndike’s idea of transfer of learning. A sample of one hundred and forty-five (145) senior secondary school II chemistry students drawn from four intact classes in two local government areas of Ibadan metropolis, were used for the research. Three well validated instruments were used to collect data. The VCBL package was developed following the Smith and Ragan Instructional System Design (ISD) Model (1999). This model comprises four stages: namely, Analysis, Design, Development and Implementation/Evaluation. Data were analysed by means of inferential statistics (ANCOVA, EMM and Tukey’s post-hoc). Results showed that there is significant main effect of treatment on students’ achievement in Chemistry (F (2, 248) =17.539; p<0.05; η2=0.124); implying that the posttest scores of students’ achievement in achievement significantly differ between the treatment and conventional groups. It was concluded that VCBL strategy has the potential to enable students understand chemistry better by way of promoting transfer of learning. In light of this, implications were discussed and relevant suggestions made.

  • Symbolic Representations as Teachers Reflect on Inclusive Education in
           South Africa

    • Authors: Elizabeth Lynne Hooijer, Dr. Martyn Van der Merwe, Dr. Jean Fourie
      Pages: 127 - 152
      Abstract: The inclusive education movement generated many changes in the education system worldwide, resulting in teachers needing to change their practice and beliefs and implement inclusive teaching strategies to accommodate a more diverse learner population. Numerous professional development courses were conducted in South Africa, however the expected change in attitude and practice proved difficult to achieve for many. Even after attending such courses, teachers found it challenging to establish inclusive learning environments, believing they did not have the necessary skills and resources to teach learners with divergent learning needs. This study explored the pivotal role of teachers and their personal perspectives of themselves as inclusive practitioners in South Africa after attending a professional development course on inclusive education strategies. A qualitative, interpretative research design was utilised whereby visual symbols alongside written reflections were analysed to identify changes in teachers’ knowledge, beliefs and practice. Findings revealed that teachers’ knowledge had increased, their attitudes towards learners with diverse needs was more positive, they felt more confident in their own abilities and more equipped for the task. Critical reflection emerged as an essential skill for teachers to be able to question their beliefs and rethink their practice but that this skill needed to be actively taught and encouraged in order to change prevailing perceptions of diversity and improve teaching practice.

  • Attitude of Postgraduate Diploma in Teaching (PGDT) Trainees towards the
           Teaching Profession in Ethiopia

    • Authors: Tensae Zeleke
      Pages: 153 - 171
      Abstract: This study explored the attitude of trainees in postgraduate diploma in teaching towards the teaching profession. The study had a descriptive survey design. Two hundred and fifty-eight trainees participated in the study. Proportionate stratified random and simple random sampling were used in the selection of the study participants. Quantitative data was collected using a standardized questionnaire developed by Renthlei and Malsawmi (2015). Percentages and Stanine scale frequency distributions were used to analyze the data and report the findings. The study revealed that a lack of other better job opportunities was the main reason for the trainees to choose teaching as their future profession. Most also expressed the interest to quit the training and join any other better job opportunity the moment they get the chance. Overall, the majority had a low attitude towards teaching as a profession. Such a low trainees’ attitude towards teaching and their intention to quit the training or leave the profession any time the opportunity comes their way, puts the government’s plan to expand the coverage of education in jeopardy. Clearly, an increase in schools cannot be achieved without a parallel increase in the number of qualified teachers. Finally, implications of the findings were forwarded to pertinent bodies in teacher education programs.

  • The Paradox of Ghanaian High School Mathematics Teachers’
           Perspectives on ICT Use

    • Authors: Farouq Sessah Mensah, Douglas Darko Agyei
      Pages: 172 - 194
      Abstract: The paper sought to investigate the perceived use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) of high school mathematics teachers in Ghana. A hundred high school mathematics teachers from 20 public schools,10 each located in the rural and urban areas respectively in the Central region of Ghana, were stratified and used in the study. A questionnaire and semi-structured interviews were used to collect data. The result of the study indicated low levels of perceived knowledge/skills of ICT use by high school mathematics teachers, contrary to their reported high usage levels of ICTs. The findings of the study also indicated that the high school mathematics teachers’ ICT use in a professional related context (instructional delivery, assessment, and professional learning network) was minimal compared to use for social networking, although they seemed to be fully aware of the relevance of using ICT in a professional related manner. Similarly, their reported technical knowledge/skills of ICT were low. Thus, the results of the study suggest that, though the teachers reported high ICT usage, actual usage seems to be at the peripheries. Among other things,  this study has implications for curriculum development and training in Ghana and countries of similar context. It may be necessary for the  Curriculum Research Development Division (CRDD) of the Ghana Education Service in collaboration with the related agencies to explicitly define parameters such as what ICT tools must be used, when they must be used, and how they should be used when reviewing and revising their mathematics teaching curriculum.

  • Maximizing Science Learning through Practical Work in Secondary Schools in
           Tanzania: Student-Teachers’ Adaptation to Language Supportive Pedagogy

    • Authors: Festo Nguru
      Pages: 195 - 221
      Abstract: There is a lack of clarity about the role of practical work in promoting learning and thinking, due to mediocrity in the way it is being handled. This study used mixed methods design to develop through microteaching, LSP integrated practical work to explore its characteristics in order to examine how the student-teachers adapted to the pedagogy in relation to its efficacy in developing science, English language, and pedagogy. The research was conducted at the University of Dodoma. The study involved 63 student-teachers and five lecturers with different specializations. The study was carried out in three cycles at the College of Education. It involved the second-year students who were studying Bachelor of Education in Science, who undertook a Physics Teaching Methods course. Review of lesson plans, achievement tests, classroom observations, and interviews with student-teachers, together with focus group discussions among the lecturers, were used to collect data. The qualitative data were analysed using the thematic analysis approach, while the quantitative data were analysed through repeated measures t-test. The student-teachers were able to plan and implement LSP practical lessons in which case students reported to have enjoyed their participation, sharing of experiences, and the bilingual classrooms. The findings from the repeated measures t-test show that there was a significant rise in the mean scores from pre-test (67.9) to the post-test (80.2), with very much reduced variability (SD) of scores among students from 24.9 (pre-test) to 6.6 (post-test). From interviews with 8 case students after each lesson, it was concluded that the students improved in science content, English language competence, and pedagogy.

  • Factors in Teachers’ Awareness of Pedagogical Gestures as Enhancement
           Technique Among English Teachers in Secondary Schools in Enugu State,
           Nigeria

    • Authors: Nkechinyere Iwe
      Pages: 222 - 241
      Abstract: The study seeks to ascertain Nigerian language teachers’ awareness of pedagogical gestures as an enhancement to teaching and whether this awareness is influenced by teaching location and teacher qualification. The study adopts the survey research design with a sample size of 262 drawn using multi-staged sampling techniques. The Z-test method was used in testing the hypothesis of the study. It was discovered that there was high mean response of teachers on the awareness of pedagogical gestures. There were significant differences in the mean response of urban/rural teachers and no significant differences in the mean response of graduate/non-graduate teacher’s awareness of pedagogical gestures as enhancement technique. Our conclusion is that pedagogical gestures are indispensable in lesson delivery and that their pedagogic values are gained through awareness of them as enhancement technique.

  • Basic School Ghanaian Language Teachers’ Perspectives on the Integration
           of ICTs in Teaching and Learning

    • Authors: Ernest Nyamekye, Daniel Baffour-Koduah, Esther Asare
      Pages: 242 - 264
      Abstract: This study sought to explore Basic School Ghanaian Language teachers’ perceptions of ICT integration in Ghanaian language teaching. The study employed the explanatory sequential mixed method design. Stratified random sampling was used to obtain data from 205 teachers in the Bono, Bono East and Ahafo region of Ghana. Analysis of data collected through a self-developed questionnaire and a semi-structured interview guide reveals that Ghanaian language teachers exhibit a positive perception of ICT integration in education. However, in practice, they tend to integrate ICT into their instruction on an occasional basis. Also, it was revealed that lack of financial support for ICT resources and lack of in-service training are factors that militated against ICT integration in Ghanaian language teaching. Finally, the study revealed a statistically significant difference between degree and diploma holders’ perceptions of ICT integration in teaching and learning

  • Teachers’ Perception of the Use of Microsoft Teams for Remote Learning
           in Southwestern Nigerian Schools

    • Authors: Damola Olugbade, Oluwakemi Olurinola
      Pages: 265 - 281
      Abstract: The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has required schools in Nigeria to embrace remote learning using technology solutions, in this case, Microsoft Teams, to effectively engage students. This study, therefore, aimed to reveal teachers’ perception of the use of Microsoft Teams for remote learning. The descriptive survey research design was adopted. The participants in the study were 51 teachers who were randomly selected using convenient sampling technique. E-questionnaire was used in the collection of data. Descriptive statistics of frequency counts, simple percentages, mean and standard deviations were used to analyze the data. Results revealed that teachers’ perception of effectiveness of Microsoft Teams for assignment and grading, for teacher and student interaction, and for classroom organisation was very good. The result obtained revealed that Microsoft Teams was effective in addressing some of the major challenges encountered by teachers during remote learning which includes students being often on other websites and poor student engagement. It was concluded that Microsoft Teams was effective for smooth interaction between teacher and students. Its use enhanced classroom organization and consequently facilitated teaching and learning process. The study encourages wider adoption of the application by schools.

  • Classroom Process and Causes of Worsening High School Students'
           Performance in Literature-in-English in Nigeria

    • Authors: Eucharia Okwudilichukwu Ugwu
      Pages: 282 - 306
      Abstract: Current theories of teaching favour students-centred classrooms. In Literature-in-English lessons, active participation of students is essential for optimal learning. This study examined the level of students' active participation in Literature-in-English classrooms as the major reason for the high failure rates of Nigerian students who take this subject in the yearly senior secondary school examinations. The study was carried out in Ibadan metropolis, Oyo State. The mixed method research design was adopted. Class Observation Schedule (r=0.9) and Interview Guide for Teachers were used to gather the data. Random sampling technique was used to select three Local Government Areas (LGAs), 27 public senior secondary schools (9 from each LGA) and one Literature-in-English teacher from each school. All the teachers were observed twice during lessons while 12 of them were interviewed. Results from the quantitative data showed that the classroom process was teacher-dominated, and students' level of participation was very low. Students hardly asked questions and teachers did not use teaching techniques that encouraged active participation. Teachers identified students' inability to buy the prescribed literary texts, lack of interest in reading and poor language proficiency as some of the factors that contribute to students' failure. Several recommendations were made to enhance the teaching-learning process and maximize learning.

  • The Effects of a School-Based Physical Activity Teacher Intervention on
           the Physical Activity Attitudes and Practices of Adolescent Students in
           Lagos, Nigeria

    • Authors: Olalekan Remigious Osifeko, Rowena Naidoo, Verusia Chetty
      Pages: 307 - 324
      Abstract: Background: Nigerian adolescents are faced with challenges around physical inactivity. Poor attitudes to, and practices in, physical activity during school physical education (PE) classes are also a challenge. Our study integrated an innovative PE teaching methodology (autonomous support style) into a professional development training (PDT) programme for teachers to promote PA among adolescents. The study aimed at determining the effects of this school-based physical activity intervention for teachers on the physical activity attitudes and practices of adolescents. This study employed a descriptive quantitative research approach to determine the attitudes and practices of adolescents. One thousand two hundred students were recruited from twenty-four junior secondary schoolsthrough an intact group design process. A PE teacher from each school was included in the PDT intervention programme. The main components of the intervention included training PE teachers to influence their students’ attitudes and practices through the use of an autonomous support style of teaching.PE teachers allocated to the intervention group implemented the autonomous support style of teaching at the schools in the intervention group for four months. There was a pre-intervention baseline assessment of the students’ physical activity attitudes and practices, with a second assessment following the intervention. Results showed that there were significant (p<0.05) changes, post-intervention, in the adolescents’ attitudes to, and practices in, physical activity participation during PE classes, and at lunch or break-time during the school day.

  • Adult Literacy Facilitators’ Job Satisfaction in Nigeria and South
           Africa

    • Authors: Sunday Itasanmi, Morakinyo Akintolu, Mathew T. Oni
      Pages: 325 - 345
      Abstract: This study reported a survey conducted to assess the job satisfaction level among adult literacy facilitators in Nigeria and South Africa. The study adopted a quantitative approach and data was collected from eighty-six (86) adult literacy facilitators (Nigeria-50 and South Africa-36) randomly selected from Oyo State, Nigeria and King Cetshwayo District, KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa. A structured questionnaire validated by experts and pilot-tested among primary School teachers serves as the research instrument. Data collected from the study were analysed using frequency count, simple percentages, mean, multiple regression analysis and T-test. Results revealed that adult literacy facilitators' job satisfaction level in the two countries is on average. Provision of a positive working environment in terms of improvement in the infrastructural facilities in the literacy centre was ranked first amongst others as ways to improve the job satisfaction of literacy facilitators. There was, however, no statistical difference in job satisfaction among literacy facilitators in Nigeria and South Africa. Therefore, it was concluded that conscious effort must be made at mapping out strategies to improve literacy facilitators’ job satisfaction to enhance adult literacy delivery in the two countries.

  • Online Learning Amidst COVID-19 Emergency: A Case of the University of
           Malawi’s School of Education

    • Authors: Bob Maseko, Foster Gondwe, Symon Winiko , Symon Chiziwa
      Pages: 346 - 364
      Abstract: This paper explores faculty members’ concerns and level of preparedness for open and distance learning (ODL) at the University of Malawi’s School of Education during the recent Covid-19 pandemic within a context that considers ODL as a means of mitigating the impact of the pandemic on teaching and learning. Data were gathered through semi-structured interviews with four experienced academic leaders within the school of education. The Concerns Based Adoption Model (CBAM), particularly stages of concerns, served as a framework to understand the faculty’s concerns about the implementation of ODL initiatives. Inductive and deductive analysis approaches were used to analyse the interview transcripts to identify emerging themes. Deductive analysis revealed that faculty members expressed several concerns such as awareness, informational, as well as consequences concerns as they talked about their feelings and attitudes towards the implementation of ODL. Inductive analysis on the other hand revealed that faculty members’ perceptions such as minimal preparation, negative orientations, and lack of policy awareness hamper the implementation of ODL. These findings underscore the importance of members’ orientation change to ensure effective implementation of ODL in contexts like the institution under study. We discuss these and propose that professional development could help members develop positive attitudes towards ODL.

  • Students’ Perspectives on Satisfaction with Distance Education in
           Ghana: A Cluster Analysis

    • Authors: Kingsley Agyapong
      Pages: 365 - 391
      Abstract: This study sought to categorise students based on the preferences that influenced their choice of distance education program in Ghana. Questionnaires were used to collect data from 120 students taking part in the University of Education, Winneba (UEW) distance education (DE) programme at the Kumasi Girls Senior High School [SHS] Study Center. Respondents were segmented into three clusters (highly, moderately, and least satisfied) based on four preferences (price, quality, packaging, and social boding) that influenced their satisfaction with the distance education programme. Results from both hierarchical and non-hierarchical cluster analysis with squared Euclidean distance and Ward’s method showed that the highly satisfied cluster was driven by the quality of service and the competitive fees structure of the UEW distance education programme. Further analysis of the differences between the clusters indicated that satisfaction with the UEW distance programme significantly differs across the three segments.
