University of Calabar (NIGERIA)
With the use of new technologies work becomes easy for universities lecturers in the whole world. With this technology they do not need to travel out before having access to information for teaching and research but the major problems over years is that these technology facilities are not adequate and available in some of our tertiary institutions. Also, even when these technologies are available some lecturers do not have access to it. Secondly, because of poor access to electricity, and lack of qualified personnels to operate the facilities. So this paper intends to access the availability, usage and skills of lecturers' to new technologies in teaching and research in Nigeria. Descriptive survey research design will be adopted for the study. Three research hypotheses will be formulated to guide the study in the aspect of availability, usage and skills of the technology facilities. A stratified random sample of 500 lecturers from state and federal universities will be drawn out of the population of one thousand five and fifty-six (1,556) lecturers. Data will be collected with the researcher's constructed instrument titled " Lecturers' Usage of Technologies for Teaching and Research Questionnaire"(LUTTRQ). Data collected will be analyzed with population t-test statistics and the result will be stated with recommendation based on the result of the the research.
