The data obtained were analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics of t-test in testing the hypotheses. The findings showed that gender has no effects on the procession and use of ICT into teaching and learning by teacher educators in tertiary institution. Less experienced lecturers are more exposed in use of ICT than high experienced lecturers. Some lecturers lacked adequate training and competence in using computer as a tool for effective teaching and research work.

The old lecturers should be encouraged to develop good attitudes toward the use of ICT for teaching and research purpose.
