Abstract

The process and the practice of teaching and learning keep undergoing changes in order to maintain pace with developments and innovations in science and technology. Gradually but definitely, the profile and characteristics of the teacher, the learner, learning materials, teaching methodologies and the classroom have changed, with significant implications for knowledge and skill acquisition. The need to improve pedagogical richness and increase flexibility of learning has resulted in the use of many non face-to-face methods, of which radio delivery of lectures is one. The researchers set out to investigate students' perception of radio delivery of lecture materials in Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi, Nigeria. 300 copies of questionnaire specifically designed for the purpose were administered on randomly selected students. In addition, the researchers engaged some of the respondents in an unstructured interview to make clarifications on the issues of sufficiency of radio medium in learning and its gender openness. Data generated were used to answer four questions that were raised to guide the research. The outcome showed that students hold a positive perception of the use of radio in learning, believe that the medium is sufficient to produce learning, only that it is disadvantageous to the female gender. Appropriate recommendations were made in line with the research findings. // Paper ID: 285
