Special Skills:

       ICT literate to a professional level. Offer consultancy services in information
        technology to corporations and institutions of higher learning. I currently teach
        courses at diploma and Masters levels on system theory and analysis,
        Management Information Systems and Internet usage.
       Provided system developers with usability advices during the development
        cycles for Hausa and Ajami word processors that have been recently (2005)
        developed.
       Also teach courses on computers in education, as well as develop certificate
        and diploma courses in computer studies. I am extremely familiar with the
        internet and its potentials as a knowledge-sharing platform. I have contributed
        to the development of websites that aim at cultural promotion and education.
        These       included      www.kanoonline.com,        www.dandali.com,         and
        www.gumel.com. I have also created about five discussion groups on Yahoo!
        Network that provide facilities for knowledge-sharing on various aspects of
        Hausa culture (music, literature, videos, classical Hausa writers, etc).
       I have also developed the unique Hausa language ‗hooked‘ character font sets
        which makes it easier for Hausa writers to accentuate Hausa prose and general
        writing. The font has been put in the public domain and made freely available
        to all writers in the Hausa language, and has been used as widely as in Russia
        to communicate effectively in Hausa language writing.

Knowledge Sharing and Public Domain Publications on Cultural
Activism and Criticism

    As a researcher with scientific background, I decided to utilize my analytical skills and
    scientific background cultural anthropology, especially in analyzing how new media
    technologies and the transnational flow of media influences are shaping the emergence of
    essentially urban Hausa media communities. This is an off-shoot of my interactions and
    activities for both The World Bank, Unicef, and United States Agency for International
    Development (USAID). To this end, I started publicizing this strategy through mass media from
    April 1999. And in order to ensure wider benefits of both qualitative and quantitative
    methodology in analysis of cultural issues, I also started writing in the Hausa language medium
    on issues that are technical: My contributions to this new theory are documented below:

Research Monographs (Unpublished series of topical research
reports)

       1.   Perspectives on the sociology of scientific knowledge (1983).
            Discusses the internal sociology of the scientific community and the
            nature of its objectivity. The paper argues that this image, reflected in
            most science teaching programs does not affect the way science is
            taught, especially in Nigeria. Pages: 17.
       2.   Females and Science Education in Northern Nigeria (1) Theoretical
            considerations (1983). This is Part I of a two part exploratory paper
            which establishes a theoretical framework for the study of girls and
            learning science in a traditional society. Pages: 9.
       3.   Paradigms and Idealism in Kano State Science Education: A Quest
            for a New Age Science Curriculum (1984). Drawing influences from
            the British Association for Science Education (ASE) consultative
            document (Alternatives for Science Education, Hatfield, ASE, 1979),
            this paper argues for a radical re-appraisal of science teaching and
            learning contexts in Nigeria. It argues for consideration to specific
            variables which make science teaching a meaningful process to pupils.
            Pages: 12.
       4.   Language and Learning Science (1983). This paper explores one of
            the least explored aspects of teaching and learning science - the
            language of instruction and its relationship to the natural languages of
            both the teacher and the learner. Drawing arguments from the literature,
            the paper presents a possible solution to the problem of language of
            instruction and learning science in Nigeria. Pages: 14.
       5.   Teacher Supply in Nigeria (1984). While a significant amount of
            government attention is given to explaining the importance of science
            teaching for development, surprisingly little by way of strategies were
            proposed for mass training and production of science teachers. This
            paper explores some avenues. Pages: 9



                                        24
6.    Science and the Nigerian Environment (1984). In this, an attempt is
      made to determine how traditional world-views and sociological
      practices facilitate, or more likely, hinder, the acquisition of scientific
      concepts by pupils in Nigeria. Pages: 10.
7.    Government Policy and Science in Kano State (1984). This
      exploratory paper about government initiatives in the use of science
      education for social and economic development, was the basis for a
      more detailed empirical work I carried out for my doctorate degree
      (Science, Schooling and Manpower Production in Nigeria: A Study of
      Kano State Science Secondary Schools, 1977-1987. D.Phil., University
      of Sussex, 1988). Pages: 20.
8.    Psychology, Science Education and the Nigerian Child (1984). This
      explores the role of psychological theories and theories of concept
      formation on the acquisition of scientific concepts, using the wider base
      of studies on African children. Pages: 22.
9.    Females and Science Education in Northern Nigeria (2) A Kano
      State Perspective (1984). This is the second, more empirical, part of a
      survey on girls and science education. The discussions in this paper are
      based on a survey of male students' opinions to girls studying science in
      Kano State. Pages: 29.
10.   Science Education and Science Curriculum Development: The 1956
      Overture (1984). Explores the political bases of science curriculum
      development. The paper argues that a dominant framework for science
      curriculum development is a political motive, with the interest of the
      student often only a secondary consideration, in both developed and
      developing countries. Pages: 25.
11.   Integrated Science Education in Kano State, Nigeria: The myths
      and fallacies (1985). This paper presents a philosophical critique of
      Integrated Science as a school subject, especially in Nigerian learning
      situations. Pages: 22.
12.   The development of a Science Education Policy in Nigeria: A Study
      of Kano State 1968-1985 (1985). This is a continuation of the
      exploratory study of the development and implementation of
      government educational policies in Kano State, Nigeria, started with
      paper number 8 (above). The paper - drawing evidence from analysis of
      government documents - presents a rather unique picture of the
      perception of education by government policy makers in Kano State.
      Pages: 70.
13.   Female Science Education in Nigeria: New Harvest, First Gathering
      - A Study of Kano State (1985). This discussion focuses attention on
      the perspectives of both male and females to female education in a
      traditional society. It is actually composed of four separate, but inter-
      connected sharing the same theme. Pages: 65.
14.   Patterns of Change in Science Education (1986). This is a theoretical
      monograph and reviews the development of Science Education
      programs reported in the literature all over the world, with emphasis on
      developing countries. The analysis uses four themes as framework:
      origin of science education changes, identification of the need for the
      changes or innovations, characteristics of the changes and the issues
      raised by massive science curricular reforms. Pages: 54.


                                   25
15.   An Intrinsic Analysis of the New Nigerian Science Curriculum
      (1987). An analysis of the objectives of the new science curriculum
      introduced in Nigerian Senior Secondary Schools in 1985, and the likely
      problems of interpretation teachers could face if they attempt to use it
      directly to guide their teaching. Pages: 33.
16.   Rhetoric and Reality in Nigerian Science Education: Observations
      of Science Teaching in Kano State Science Schools (1988). This
      monograph focuses attention on classroom interaction between students
      and teachers and questions the passiveness of policy makers in their
      attitude to the reality of classroom situations. Pages: 45.
17.   Power, Fellowship Network and Policy evolution in Nigeria: A study
      of Kano State Science Schools (1988). This monograph is a detailed
      analysis of the power games that underlie the development of
      government policies in Nigeria. A framework was the development of
      Science Secondary Schools. Based on interview data with officials and
      open documents. Pages: 92.
18.   Educational and Occupational aspirations and expectations in
      Specialist schools in Nigeria: A Study of Kano State Science Schools
      Students (1989). This monograph examines the career and educational
      aspirations and occupations of students from the Science as well as
      students from Non-science schools in Kano State (who nevertheless
      study science subjects also). The analysis is carried out against the
      background of the policy expectations of the Science Schools project in
      Kano. Pages: 48.
19.   Educational Change Theories and Educational innovations in
      Nigeria (1989). Using models that explain the development (and
      expiration!) of educational change strategies, this monograph explores
      three recent educational innovations in Nigeria. Based on the findings,
      the monograph argues that the classic change theories do not apply in all
      cases, because educational changes are not linear, and the rationale for
      such changes, especially in Nigeria, often not too clearly articulated.
      Contains a significant portion on Science Education. Pages: 51.
20.   Girls and Education in a traditional society: A study of Kano State
      Girls' Science Secondary School (1985, 1989). This is a revised and
      updated version of Monograph Number 4, and extends the analysis of
      the girls science school as a reformist measure to encourage the study of
      science by girls, especially in a traditional society such as Kano State.
      Pages: 44.
21.   Science Education as a Development Strategy in Nigeria: A study of
      Kano State Science Secondary Schools (1989). This concludes this
      series of monographs by analyzing the extent to which science education
      can be used as development strategy, and the factors that will enable
      science education policies to be effectively implemented if science can
      be seen as an agent of social transformation. Pages: 52.
22.   The Role of the Science Magazine in promoting Out-of-School
      Science Education Activities (1988). This paper is based on a draft of a
      paper I presented as a Guest Speaker at the launching of a school science
      magazine in Gwammaja I Senior Secondary School, Kano (6th
      December 1988). It provides strategies for out-of-school science



                                  26
      education which can enable a further extension of science learning
      objectives outside the formal classroom. Pages: 12.
23.   An intrinsic Analysis of the new Nigerian Biology Curriculum
      (1988). This paper focuses on the Biology curriculum drawing attention
      to its features that might prove difficult to interpretation for school
      teachers (1988). Pages: 24.
24.   An intrinsic Analysis of the new Nigerian Chemistry Curriculum
      (1988). As above, but focusing on Chemistry only. Pages: 21.
25.   An intrinsic Analysis of the new Nigerian Physics Curriculum
      (1989). Similar analysis on Physics. Pages: 18.
26.   Curricula Rhetoric, Classroom teaching and Examinations: a
      critical analysis of the new Nigerian science curriculum (1989). This
      paper analyses the correlation between what the curriculum developer
      identifies as the main purposes of science teaching, how teachers
      interpret the curriculum, and the skills the examination system
      encourages in children. The analysis is carried out in an integrated
      manner but with the main focus being on the examination system. The
      main argument is that regardless of the philosophical notions of the
      curriculum developer in Nigeria, the examination system still sets the
      pattern, pace and directions of education. Pages: 22.
27.   The Science Education Reform Strategy in Nigeria: The Case of
      Kano State Science Secondary Schools (1989). This is an adaptation of
      item 22. Whilst the former listing was carried out within the framework
      of a specific research paradigm (illuminative tradition), this summative
      paper uses the development framework to base the discussions. Pages:
      21.
28.   Trends and Tendencies in Manpower Development Strategies: An
      Analysis of the achievements of the Kano State Science Secondary
      Schools, 1980-1988 (1989). This looks at the facts and figures of the
      examination results of the Science secondary schools. The examination
      figures are used as the main determinants to the success of the project by
      the policy makers. The paper reveals a rather surprising pattern of
      achievement, especially in the girls' school. The paper was eventually
      commissioned by the Science and Technical Schools Board, Kano State
      to guide in policy decisions about the future of the Science Schools.
      Pages: 24.
29.   Taught Apart: A Study of Specialist Provisions in Nigerian Science
      Education (1989). This paper analyses the learning strategies and
      attitudes to science of Science and Non-Science School students, as well
      as incorporates data about the way the students were taught Biology and
      Physics. Although the Science and Non-Science schools are set out to be
      clearly different from each other, yet the results reveal a surprising
      pattern in the similarities between the learning, teaching and attitudinal
      variables among students and teachers in the two categories of schools.
      Pages: 27.
