  • Lawrence O. Amazue


This study examined the roles of information communication technology (lCT) and gender in job satisfaction among University of Nigeria (UNN) lecturers. A random sample of 184 UNN lecturers participated in the study. They consisted of 141 men and 43 women drawn from both Nsukka and Enugu campuses of University of Nigeria. Participants' accessibility to lCT facilities was assessed with the lCT Accessibility Questionnaire developed by the researcher. The questionnaire tapped information about lecturers' accessibility to computers and internet services in the performance of their daily duties. In addition, lecturers' job satisfaction was measured with the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) developed by Weis, Dawis, England and Lofqouist (1967). A two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to analyze the data. No significant result was found. The results contradicted existing findings.
