Presentation abstract

The choice of teaching method which is the general principles, pedagogy and management strategies used for classroom instruction is very important to degree of assimilation by the recipient of teaching. Teaching theories primarily fall into two categories or “approaches” teacher-centered and student- centered. In the former, teachers are the main authority figure in this model. Students are viewed as empty vessels whose primary role is to passively receive information (via lectures and direct instruction) with an end goal of testing and assessment. However in a student-centered approach, teachers and students play an equally active role in the learning process. The teacher’s primary role is to coach and facilitate student learning and overall comprehension of material. Student learning is measured through both formal and informal forms of assessment, including group projects, student portfolios, and class participation. This study examined the relationship between teaching methods and assimilation and or the most effective teaching/instructional strategies used in the teaching of Fine and Applied Art in Colleges of Education in the northern parts of Nigeria. A sample population of 2000 students cutting across the various colleges of Education in the northern parts of Nigeria who are studying Fine and Applied Art course were used. A simple random sampling technique was used to harness the student population required in the study. The sampling technique used here include the Yemane (1967), revised by Dotun Kunle (2006) sampling technique which gives a broad base coverage of a large population. The study revealed that students prefer the Discussion method followed by the Active learning strategies/methods because both are student centered and teacher friendly.The study therefore, recommends that these two teaching/Instructional communication strategies/methods be adopted in tertiary institutions especially where it involves the teaching of skills like Fine and Applied Arts.
