THE ROLE OF ICT POLICY IN DEVELOPMENT, IMPLEMENTATION AND EVALUATION OF ICT IN NIGERIAN TERTIARY INSTITUTION

Abstract:Nigerian tertiary education is approaching the point at which Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays a part in nearly all phases of the educational process. In many institutions, this IT revolution has taken place without institutional policies in place and even where they exist, they have been inconsistently developed or have been unevenly implemented regarding the use of ICT in educational programs. Even as institutions help faculty members develop educational and research programs, they have not developed policies to address fundamental and relevant ICT usage and application in these programs. Faculty efforts to bring ICT into their teaching and scholarly activities are rarely considered in formal faculty review and evaluation of teaching curriculum. In the long run, the effectiveness of these new digital tools will be dependant on the way in which these ICT policies are adopted and implemented. This paper discusses the vital role policies can play in the development, implementation and evaluation of ICT in Nigerian tertiary institutions.
