ABSTRACT
The construct of this paper is to dissect the interplay between teachers, their practice, and their teaching context through reconnoiter in relationships between conceptions of teaching, teaching context, and enacted practice, and the classification of pedagogy as teacher-centred or student-centred. This discourse is then situated within a wholly online vocational technical education teaching context bringing Nigeria into perspective. The idea is that the teacher is central to the introduction and use of online pedagogical mode, and any discourse on online teaching that excluded the teacher’s nature and teaching characteristics would be a nirvana. The paper also articulates the classification of online or information, communication, technology teaching facilities and decried the absence of concise national policy and inadequate online teaching resources, because entrenching quality or maintaining standard is possible when all rightful provisions for the functionality of online teaching has been made, as something cannot be built on nothing.
