He has also served as an external examiner for the promotion of faculty members from sister universities. Winfred teaches Information Systems and other Computer-related courses both at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Dr Larkotey is a proud member of the Association of Information Systems which is a global association of information systems experts and the United Kingdom Association of Information Systems. He loves to solve puzzles, listen to music, develop technology-related strategies, stir and encourage young minds, travel, and help people in need.


Winfred is inspired by this quote of Madam Theresa, “I am a little pencil in God’s hands. He does the thinking. He does the writing. He does everything and sometimes it is really hard because it is a broken pencil and He has to sharpen it a little more”.
