IMPROVISATION IN BIOLOGY TEACHING-LEARNING: A PRAGMATIC APPROACH TO SOLVING THE PROBLEM OF ILL-EQUIPPED LABORATORIES AT POST BASIC EDUCATION LEVEL
Effective teaching for quality science education can only be achieved through “learning by doing” (practical activities) in well-equipped laboratory. The illequipped science laboratories have reached an alarming level thereby making learning by doing impossible. This paper takes a look at the concept and skills or techniques of improvising biology teaching equipment (instructional materials) as a viable alternative and a panacea to ill-equipped laboratories in our post-basic education in Nigeria. The paper recommends among other things, that schools should encourage and motivate science teachers to develop basic improvisation skills through the use of raw materials and resource persons in the host community.
