ABSTRACT

This study determined the relationship between motivational strategies, quality assurance and lecturers’ effective instructional delivery in the south east Nigeria. The study adopted a correlational survey research design. A sample of 403 lecturers drawn from a population of 1009 lecturers selected from nine public universities in the south east Nigeria using multi-stage sampling procedure.  The instruments for data collection were Motivational Strategies Questionnaire (MOSTRAQ), Quality Assurance Questionnaire (QAQ) and Lecturers’ Effective Instructional Delivery Questionnaire (LEIDQ) which were all developed by the researcher. The instruments were validated by three experts, two in Educational Management and one in measurement and evaluation, all in College of Education, Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia State. The internal consistency of the items in the instruments were determined using Cronbach Alpha statistic which yielded coefficients of 0.765, 0.748 and 0.928 for of MOSTRAQ, QAQ and LEIDQ respectively. Four research assistants helped in data collection. Out of the 403copies of the three instruments administered respectively, 321 copies of each of the instruments representing 80% rate of return were well filled by the respondents and used for data analysis.  Pearson product moment correlation was used to answer the research questions raised for the study while linear regression analysis was used to test the null hypotheses that guided the study at 0.05 level of significance. The findings showed among others that the Professional development of lecturers, Quality remuneration of lecturers, prompt promotion of lecturers, Quality infrastructural facilities, Accreditation of academic programmes and supervision of lecturers’ academic activities respectively to a very high extent relate to lecturers’ instructional delivery while campus shuttle system as well as quality staff quarters to a moderate and high extent respectively relate to lecturers’ effective instructional delivery. It could be concluded that motivational strategies as well as quality assurance respectively significantly relate with the lecturers’ effective instructional delivery in Southeast Nigeria. Based on the findings, it was recommended among others that University authorities should establish different motivational strategies for her lecturers to ensure effective instructional delivery.
