Abstract

Faculty Readiness in teaching Video Information Creation in Nigerian Library and Information Science Departments

Videos are powerful tools in learning. They can spark curiosity, promote scientific enquiry and help students make connection between their experiences and the content to be taught. Teaching video creation is therefore very important. The aim of this study is to establish faculty readiness in teaching video creation in LIS departments in Nigerian universities. Descriptive research design was used for the study. The population of the study is 25 accredited universities that offer Library and Information Science programme. Proportionate random sampling was used to select 12 universities for the study. Observation checklist and questionnaire were used for data gathering. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics involving frequencies and mean. The findings of the study show that lecturers possess some of the skills needed for teaching video creation. However, the study revealed that most of the universities studied lacked the required facilities needed for teaching video creation. To enhance video creation, it was suggested that workshop/training should be provided for the lecturers.
