Abstract: Business education is the body of knowledge concerned with exposing its recipients to the operations of the business world. In a bid to improve the occupational profiles of business education graduates in the workplace, this study determined the adequacy of business education curriculum content for skills acquisition in colleges of education in Edo and Delta States. Two research questions and four null hypotheses guided the study. Descriptive survey research was adopted for the study. The entire population of 120 business educators from the Department of Business Education in the five government-owned colleges of education in Edo and Delta States were studied without sampling. A structured and validated two-point rating scale questionnaire was used for data collection. Cronbach Alpha was used to measure the internal consistency which yielded the reliability co-efficients of 0.81, and 0.93 for cluster B1 and B2 respectively with an overall reliability co-efficient of 0.87. Out of the.....

Abstract: The full acceptance of infographics as a device for transmitting complicated information to a broad audience, it has considerable potential as a method of efficiently, precisely, without vagueness and delivering abstract, complex, and intensive instructional content, thus this technique supporting student learning. Because of this potentiality, infographics professionals require more substantial experience for instructional, performances, interpreting and assessment. However, there is limited scholarly literature that focuses on Infographics use in art education or on the practical design of infographics specifically for art educational curricula. The present investigation concerned to investigate common infographics to be as guidance about how utilising the Infographics methods to be as a process of perception and creativity of the art design. The present research demonstrates the results of the analysis of popular infographics, and what makes an excellent method for the educational process as well as and how to do it.
