Reform and Adaptation in Nigerian University Curricula, 1960-1992
|Author: ||Adamu, Abdalla|
This book analyses the mechanism of the adaptation process, as well as the management of reform in Nigerian university curriculum from 1960-1992. In particular, it examines how Nigerian universities adopted the American university undergraduate curricular structure, and explores the parameters needed for effective management of such institutional transfer in developing countries. The National Policy on Education provided for a total reconstitution of Nigerian education, and a virtually complete departure from its British roots (argued as being inadequate in preparing graduates for effective employment in an increasingly diversified economy, and lacking in correlation between curricula and social reality).
