Abstract

There was a long history for educational strategy and technique in teaching and learning Islamic education in West Africa. The educational activities and cultural center in West Africa played a strategic role in introducing Islamic teaching. On the other hand, they also played a significant role in establishing great Islamic rulers and in extending the Islamic world to West Africa. This paper carried out a research on educational strategy and technique in teaching Islamic education from African teachers' perception. It was conducted by a survey. The data was collected from questionnaires that were distributed to 83 teachers as respondents from Timbuktu and Gene in Mali, Kanem and Bornum in Nigeria. The research finding showed that five educational techniques and two educational strategies were effective in teaching and learning Islamic education. In addition, enhancement technologies through teaching and learning will contribute in two areas (i) ICT (information and communication technology) may be used as a medium in the teaching and learning to develop a more creative thinking in the education process, and (ii) Media is a form of teaching aids that assists teachers in the teaching, provide them with tools to illustrate some points or processes as well as to support long distance educational system. The perception of the teachers in term of educational strategy and technique of teaching and learning in the classroom and the 7 strategies/ technologies perceived by African teachers were effective. Therefore, African teachers have improved their ability to apply more effective strategy and technique in their teaching. On the part of the students, the importance of the educational technique and media are to enable them to associate the effective learning.
