    • Abstract:
      Employed a multiple research methodology to investigate and compare the time perceptions of university teachers from the UK (n =34) and Nigeria (n = 75). In the Nigerian sample, the university teachers were inaccurate in about 70% of their time estimates as compared with recorded data on how they actually spent their time. In the UK sample, teachers were inaccurate in only about 40% of their estimates when compared with the actual figures. The nature of the errors committed by the 2 groups of university teachers were, however, very similar: 69% and 71% of the incorrect estimates were errors of overestimation. There were similarities in the activities on which they underestimated or overestimated spending their time. Implications for managerial practice and research explored.
