Abstract:
The roles of women as wife, mother and income generator tends to be socially constructed. As a result, employed women often experience frustration with roles, conflicts, lack of time, energy, and generalized stress. It has been observed that domestic, educational and professional pressures impact on the way they study on the ODL programme. Using survey method, data were gathered using a structured questionnaire from one single mode ODL institution in Nigeria and a total of one hundred and fifty (150) employed female students from two study centres (Awa and Victoria Island) ranging from five different schools were sampled. The result of the hypotheses shows there was no significant relationship between women’s professional grouping and their nature of study on the ODL programme while there was a significant relationship between women’s employment status and their nature of study on the ODL programme. In conclusion, the result of the study shows that majority of the women used for this study find it hard to really concentrate and study conveniently without having anything to disturb them. It is recommended that course developers need to pay heed to the nature of study of women on the ODL programme by providing short study periods through means of short comprehensive cognitive hooks like summaries, overviews, use of diagrams and audio cassettes to provide an overview of a unit of concept.
