Publications of Interest
I am a Demographer by training but I have evolved as a social researcher and a part time educator at the tertiary level. My research interests are male reproductive behaviour, fatherhood, teenage fertility, social policy, programme evaluation, evaluation of teaching and learning, and asessment of student outcomes.
This page lists some of the publications that I used as part of a literature review in one of my research interests. I have listed them in Chicago Manual of Style format. If you have some others that you think may be of interst to me please feel free to add them.
