The present study focuses on learning the management of technology-based instruction as a predictor of attitude to work among university teachers. The study used a correlation design with a sample size of 450 university teachers in the Faculty of Education of selected two public Nigerian Universities using a simple random sampling technique. Technology-Based Instruction Scale (TBIS) and University Teachers’ Attitude to Work Scale (UTAWS) were used for data collection. Three experts validate the instruments. Internal consistency reliability coefficients of 0.88 and 0.78 were obtained for (TBIS) and (UTAWS) respectively using the Cronbach alpha method. To test the hypotheses, a t-test associated with linear regression was used. The results indicated that management of technology-based instruction can significantly predict university teachers’ attitudes to work to a high extent. Based on the findings, some recommendations were highlighted including that the Nigerian government should collaborate with non-governmental bodies such as the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and other international organizations in providing financial support to acquire viable technology tools for instruction to promote a positive attitude to work among university teachers in Nigeria.
