Abstract


The paper examined the influence of student-centered and computer assisted methods of teaching in promoting entrepreneurship education among business education students at tertiary institutions in kwara state Nigeria. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The population of the study consisted of 200, out of 943 undergraduates of Business education from four Tertiary Institutions in Kwara State that were selected through simple random sampling technique. A structured questionnaire was used for data collection. Mean and standard deviation were used to analyze data related to research questions, while t-test statistics was used in testing the two null hypotheses of the study. The study revealed that student-centered and computer assisted methods of teaching to a great extent inculcate entrepreneurship education in students. The two null hypotheses of no significant difference were not rejected at 0.05 level of significance which therefore indicate that the opinions of male and female students do not differ significantly on the extent student-centered and computer assisted methods of teaching inculcate entrepreneurship education in business education students. It was recommended among others that Business Education Lecturers should continue to adopt the identified strategies in the teaching and learning of entrepreneurship education, since they are highly effective in inculcating entrepreneurship skills in students, and also that Curriculum planners should build in dynamic entrepreneurship skills into the curricular at all fields of study so as to make the curricula at every level of education be geared towards self-reliance.
