CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

Technical drawing deals with graphical representations of ideas.  According  to  Gagne, and Briggs. (2009), technical  drawing  is  a  means  of  clearly  and  concisely  communicating  all  of  the  information  necessary  to transform  an  idea  or  concept  into  a  reality.  Technical drawing often contains more than just a graphical representation of its subject. It also contains dimensions, notes and specifications. The  Federal  Government  of  Nigeria  (FGN)  in  National  Policy  on  Education  (2004),  made  technical drawing  as  an  elective  subject  offered  at  secondary  school  level  but  National  Board  for  Technical  Education (NBTE) [2004] stipulated  that  in  technical  colleges,  technical  drawing  should  be  taught  as  a  trade  related  course  and should be taken by all students in engineering trade and construction trades except craft practice, this is due to the basic knowledge and skills it provides in engineering and construction courses. Therefore, technical drawing as a trade related course in technical college must be studied by all students in the technical related areas for an improved academic achievement.  One  of  the  objectives  of  technical  drawing  as contained  in  the  handbook  published  by  National  Institute  for  Educational  Development  (NIED), (1997)  is  to solve  practical  and  technological  problems  through  the  process  of  communication  skills  which are  central  to design and  planning.  It  therefore  becomes  imperative  that  only  competent  teacher  can  teach  technical  drawing effectively.  Competence is the ability to do something well.  In  the  view  of  Hornby  (2010),  to  be  competent  means  that  a person has the ability or power, to demonstrate knowledge, skills and attitudes that are sufficiently required to perform  a  given  job  or  task.  Nussel,  Inglis  and  Wiersma  (2006),  explained  that  competency  is  a  functional ability  to  apply  to  practical  situation  the  essential  principles  and  techniques  of  a  particular  subject  matter  or field.  In  this  study,  functional  ability  of  teachers  of  technical  drawing  to  demonstrate  knowledge,  skills  and attitudes  required  in  teaching  technical  drawing  indicates  competence.  If on the other hand, one could not satisfactorily demonstrate knowledge, skills and attitudes required in the teaching, then the individual has a gap which shows lack of competence.
