Barnabas C. Emenogu
Barnabas C. Emenogu has had the rare privilege of exposure to tertiary education on an international platform. Obtaining a Bachelor’s degree from Nigeria’s premier tertiary institution – the University of Ibadan, he proceeded to the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, for graduate studies, completing his Master’s degree in record time. To fulfil his quest for international educational attainment, he went on to the University of Toronto, and holds a PhD of that high-profile institution – with specialization in Educational Measurement, Evaluation & Statistics.
Dr. Emenogu’s international educational exposure has enabled him to make notable contributions to reciprocal teaching/learning initiatives, and educational development activities in African countries and the Western world. He was the founding Secretary of APQEN (Association for Promoting Quality Education in Nigeria). The monograph series of that Association contributed immensely to the dissemination of valuable research knowledge in many African countries, especially in the West-African sub-region. Barnabas was formerly Principal Lecturer at the Al-van Ikoku College of Education, Owerri, and at one time an associate faculty at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. Later, he joined the Ontario Ministry of Education as Senior Research & Statistical Coordinator in 2006 in the then Literacy and Nu-meracy Secretariat. He was Manager, Data Analytics in the Education Statistics and Analysis Branch of the same Ministry for four years. Cur-rently, he is Education Officer in the Incubation & Design Branch, Systems Planning, Research and Innovation Division of the Ontario Ministry of Education, Toronto, Canada.
