A descriptive survey design was adopted for the study. The study population size was one hundred and fourteen (114) secondary school teachers’ of English language from the 22 public secondary schools in the Onitsha metropolis. There was no sampling because the population was manageable. The instrument for data collection was a structured questionnaire developed by the researchers with 34 items measured on a 4-point linker scale. Three research questions guided the study while the data collected were analyzed using mean and standard deviation. Two experts from the Measurement and Evaluation Unit, Faculty of Education Nnamdi Azikiwe, validated the instrument. The findings revealed that teachers of the English language need capacity building in teaching some aspects of the language as well as in innovative methods of teaching the subject and in the use of some instructional materials, especially ICT gadgets.

A survey research design was adopted for the study, and it was carried out in three public universities committed to science education courses in Nigeria. Sixty-five teaching staff and sixty students were selected using a stratified random sampling technique to respond to questionnaires from the three tertiary institutions. The instruments used for data collection were questionnaires titled: Science Education Students Online Questionnaire (SESOQ) and Science Education Lecturers Online Questionnaire (SELOQ). The questionnaires gathered information from both lecturers and students based on the online teaching and learning platform.

Three research questions were raised and answered in the study. Two null hypotheses were formulated and tested at a .05 level of significance. A descriptive survey research design was used in the study. Two hundred seventeen students of tertiary institutions in Delta State comprised the sample of the study. A structured questionnaire titled ‘Impact of Industrial Action on Students’ Academic Performance Questionnaire’ (IIASAPQ)’ was used for data collection. Mean and standard deviation, as well as t-test statistics, were used to answer the research questions. The formulated null hypotheses were tested at a .05 level of significance using t-test statistics. The findings revealed that instability in the policies of the government both at the central and state levels, poor welfare and remuneration package of the staff of the various unions, among others, are causes of industrial actions of unions of Nigeria tertiary institutions, and the difference in the mean ratings on the causes of industrial actions of unions of Nigeria tertiary institutions is not significant based on gender. Additionally, lack of interest in school among students, which leads to poor academic performance, reduced and low grades, and poor study habits among students to a great extent are the impact of industrial actions of various unions on the academic performance of students in Nigeria tertiary institutions, and, the difference in the mean ratings on the extent industrial actions impacts academic performance of students in Nigeria tertiary institutions is not significant based on gender. Based on the findings, the study recommended, among others, that the federal government should ensure that there is a smooth and regular dialogue with various unions of tertiary institutions so as to avoid incessant industrial actions. The unions of various tertiary institutions should understand the impact of their industrial action on the academic performance of the students, therefore, seek alternative means of dispute and conflict resolution with the federal government instead of resorting to industrial actions.</p> C.
