    His Major Research Projects (Completed)

    •  Second International (lEA) Science Study (SISS)

    I have served as data manager and member of the Nigerian Research Committee that conducted SISS in Nigeria. The study was designed to provide a map of school science education from a survey of the nature, content and output of science education across Nigeria and other 34 participating countries of the world

    •  Curriculum Development in Integrated Science in Selected African Countries (A UNESCO-initiated Study)

    I was one of the two UNESCO consultants that conducted the study which focused on innovations in science and technology education in selected African countries including Nigeria. The study reviewed policies and practices of five integrated science programmes in some African nations and made recommendations that have implications for science teacher training and retraining, curriculum development and evaluation.

    •  Report on the state of Education in Africa (A UNESCO-Initiated Study)

    I was one of the five UNESCO consultants that conducted the study which reviewed Africa's education strategies for the 1990's: orientations and achievements. It provided an overview of on-going educational crises and developments in the region; and surveyed issues related to educational reforms in general: the education of girls and women, science and technology education, population and environmental education, higher education and research in education.

    •  Education of Women and Girls: Study of Island of Equity in Eastern Nigerian (A UNESCO-Initiated Study)

    I was one of three UNESCO consultants that conducted the study which probed further into the Island of Equity in the Eastern region of Nigeria; and examined the factors inherent in the regions in favour of women and girls education.

    •  Educational Imbalance in Nigeria (a National Study Commissioned by Office of the President, Ministry of Special Duties, Nigeria)

    I was a member of a team of eleven scholars from seven Nigerian Universities who conducted the study. The national study identified the reasons for and nature of educational imbalance in the country and thus provided empirical bases for suggesting strategies for overcoming the imbalance.
