ABSTRACT

This research project aims to investigate the utilization of asynchronous and synchronous teaching and learning approaches by business educators in tertiary institutions in Plateau State, Nigeria, in response to the new normal of instructional delivery. With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, educational institutions have had to adapt to remote and hybrid learning environments. This study seeks to explore how business educators in Plateau State have adopted and utilized asynchronous and synchronous teaching and learning approaches, examine their experiences and challenges, assess the effectiveness of these approaches in achieving learning outcomes, and propose recommendations for enhancing instructional delivery in the new normal.

A mixed-methods research design will be employed, utilizing surveys, interviews, and classroom observations to collect data from business educators and students. The research objectives include exploring the utilization of asynchronous and synchronous teaching and learning approaches by business educators, examining their experiences and challenges in implementing these approaches, assessing the effectiveness of these approaches in achieving learning outcomes, and proposing recommendations for enhancing instructional delivery in the new normal.

The findings of this research project will contribute to the existing body of knowledge by providing insights into the utilization of asynchronous and synchronous teaching and learning approaches by business educators in Plateau State. The research will identify the extent to which these approaches have been adopted, the specific strategies and technologies employed, and the perceived benefits and limitations. Additionally, the study will examine the experiences and challenges faced by business educators in implementing these approaches, considering factors such as technological infrastructure, pedagogical training, student engagement, and assessment methods. Furthermore, the research will assess the effectiveness of asynchronous and synchronous approaches in achieving learning outcomes, considering student performance, satisfaction, and learning experiences. Based on the findings, recommendations will be proposed for enhancing instructional delivery in the new normal, encompassing faculty development, technological support, curriculum design, and student support services.

The implications of this research extend to business educators, students, educational institutions, policymakers, and educational technology providers. The findings will provide business educators with insights into the utilization of asynchronous and synchronous approaches, guiding their instructional practices and professional development efforts. Students can benefit from the research findings by understanding the advantages and challenges of these approaches and adapting their learning strategies accordingly. Educational institutions can utilize the research findings to develop supportive policies, provide training opportunities, and allocate resources effectively. Policymakers can consider the implications of the research when formulating policies and initiatives that promote effective instructional delivery in the new normal. Educational technology providers can utilize the research findings to develop and improve tools and platforms that facilitate asynchronous and synchronous learning experiences
