  42. University Collaborative Research and Wealth Creation.Valentine Joseph Owan - 2022 - Calabar: University of Calabar Press.
    There are two primary roles of universities – a place of learning and where new ideas and technologies are created. Universities profit from teaching and learning, research, and technology positions. It is the responsibility of institutions of higher learning to produce capable and self-directed learners who are confident and capable of contributing to society through leadership or civic engagement. Universities also prepare students for high-level employment. These institutions are also there to generate new knowledge, shift paradigms, assist society in fulfilling (...)

  43. Students' awareness, willingness and utilisation of facebook for research data collection: Multigroup analysis with age and gender as control variables.Valentine Joseph Owan, Moses Eteng Obla, Michael Ekpenyong Asuquo, Mercy Valentine Owan, Godian Patrick Okenjom, Stephen Bepeh Undie, Joseph Ojishe Ogar & Kelechi Victoria Udeh - 2023 - Journal of Pedagogical Research 7 (4):369-399.
    Previous research has extensively analysed teachers' and students' Facebook use for instructional engagement, writing, research dissemination and e-learning. However, Facebook as a data collection mechanism for research has scarcely been the subject of previous studies. The current study addressed these gaps by analysing students' awareness, willingness, and utilisation of Facebook for research data collection [RDC]. This study aimed to predict students’ Facebook use for research data collection based on their awareness and willingness and to determine age and gender differences in (...)

  46. Predicting students’ multidimensional learning outcomes in public secondary schools: The roles of school facilities, administrative expenses and curriculum.Valentine Joseph Owan, John Asuquo Ekpenyong, Usen Friday Mbon, Kingsley Bekom Abang, Nse Nkereuwen Ukpong, Maria Ofie Sunday, Samuel Okpon Ekaette, Michael Ekpenyong Asuquo, Victor Ubugha Agama, Garieth Omorobi Omorobi & John Atewhoble Undie - 2023 - Journal of Applied Learning and Teaching 6 (2):1-17.
    Previous research has assessed school facilities, administrative expenditures and curriculum and their relative contributions to students’ cognitive learning outcomes. This suggested the need to investigate further how these predictors may impact students’ affective and psychomotor outcomes. The current research studied the combined and relative prediction of school facilities, administrative expenses and curriculum on students’ overall cognitive, affective and psychomotor learning outcomes in public secondary schools. A cross-sectional research design was employed in this study, involving 87 school administrators and a randomly (...)

    The exploration of the literature indicated that much studies abound in related areas. Much seems yet to be known about the nature of the relationship that exists between managerial variables and the sustainability of graduate programmes. To bridge this gap, we utilized a standardised multiple regression approach to build up linear models that examine three managerial processes (strategic planning, staff and information/communication management) and how they affect three proxies of the sustainability of graduate programmes (availability of funds and facilities, as (...)
