Academic Paper from the year 2018 in the subject Pedagogy - General, , course: Education, language: English, abstract: This study was done to gauge the sensitivity of University teachers to the use of emerging technologies for teaching in Nigerian universities. The study was a survey of the academic of the Faculties of Education in Universities across North Central Nigeria. The study is borne out of the need to x-ray some complexities in the Nigerian educational system that may likely underlie the rather slow pace and magnitude of use of relevant emerging technologies in teaching in Nigerian universities. The paper attempted to measure the level of awareness and responsiveness as well as proficiency among university teachers in the use of emerging technologies like use of personal computers, computerized grading, e-textbooks, gammification, simulation, active and flipped classrooms in teaching. A semi-structured questionnaire was used to collect data which was analyzed using simple percentages. Findings indicate that the percentage level of awareness of the existence of some relevant technologies for teaching is generally very low while teacher responsiveness is as low and invariably poor. The percentage skill level was also very low. It was concluded that the relative slow pace of the application of emerging ICT for teaching in Nigerian universities is likely connected with teachers' sensitivity to the use of such ICTs in teaching. It was recommended among other things that educators generally and university teachers in particular should be made aware of relevant emerging technologies through policies and regulations that ensure teachers at such a discerning level of education are fully trained and incentivized to use the relevant ICT in delivering their diverse services like the most needed rich scholarly content as well as relevant skills for the 21st Century learner.
