Abstract

This study explored the effect of Computer Assisted Instruction (CAI) on the teaching of self-reliance skills for sustainable entrepreneurship development amongst undergraduate Social Studies students in Kaduna State, Nigeria. Three (3) research objectives, questions and null hypotheses guided the study. A quasi-experimental research design was employed. The Self Reliance Skills Performance Test (SERSIT) was used for data collection. Mean, standard deviation, t-test and two-way ANOVA statistics were used. The findings revealed that a significant difference exists between the mean academic performance and retention scores of undergraduate students taught self-reliance skills using CAI and those taught using conventional methods. No significant difference was found between the mean academic performance scores of undergraduate students taught self-reliance skills using CAI in relation to gender and ownership. Based on the findings, it was recommended, amongst others thing, that subsequent curriculum review in Social Studies should accommodate the dynamism of CAI atall levels. This will promote a student-centred instructional approach, autonomy in knowledge acquisition and self-discovery learning to ensure sustainable entrepreneurship development in Kaduna state.
