My work

I graduated with a Doctor of Educational Sciences degree in April, 2022 and what a journey that was! The PhD process is something I will write on in the future, it is important to have different perspectives on the process as it differs per individual, academic institution, department, etc. While I continue to give guest lectures, presentations and conferences and seminars, I also work as an independent consultant while overseeing our work at CoCreate Belgium and setting up the operations of CoCreate Nigeria.

Below is a list and link to my published work so far, more to come.
