Abstract:This study investigated the digital divide in the utilization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in counsellor education in Nigerian universities. Two research questions were addressed and two hypotheses tested at .05 level of significance. The author adopted a survey design and used an ICT Utilization Questionnaire (IUQ) to collect data from the entire population of 142 counsellor-educators and trainee-counsellors in the five universities in the South-South geopolitical zone of Nigeria which offered Guidance and Counselling as a course of study at the Master's degree level in the 2007/2008 session. This instrument was validated by five experts, and its reliability was established to be 0.9. Data were analysed using mean, standard deviation and t-test measures. The findings indicate that there is no digital divide based on gender but there is a digital divide based on status of counsellor educator or trainee-counsellors. Recommendations were made to different stakeholders on bridging this gap. Bibliogr. [Journal abstract]
