Teaching & Learning Statement

My philosophy in teaching is to engage students and motivate them to learn and understand the current real-world situations in every course I teach. I focus on the relevance and usefulness of the course material. For instance, I always rise up some current cases and issues at the beginning of each course which somehow can be solved and discussed at the end of the course. Therefore, students can be part of these issues and try to solve it after they gain the proper knowledge during the class, plus continuous feedback, and evaluation in each session (assessment for learning). in addition, I use an array of learning tools to inspire engagement, participation, and a sense of fun into the classroom.
