Ekua Tekyiwa Amua-Sekyi, Prince Yeboah Asare


This pilot study examined the information and communication technology literacy level among lecturers in a public university in Ghana, as well as the influence of gender and age on lecturers’ level of ICT literacy. A survey design was adopted which employed stratified random sampling technique to select 96 out of 526 lecturers for the study. Data obtained were analysed using frequencies, mean, t-test, and analysis of variance (ANOVA). The findings of the study indicate that lecturers’ level of competence with ICT is good. However, their familiarity with the university’s academic resources is poor.  The level of ICT literacy among lecturers is not gender sensitive. The age of lecturers does not influence their level of literacy. It is suggested that interventions have to be planned to help improve lecturers’ utilization of the university’s academic resources to enhance the discharge of their duties as professional teachers.
