Teaching & Learning Statement

Dr. Ahmad’s teaching and learning philosophy aims at developing the creative aspect of students and encourages them to present their talents using appropriate interactive methods such as discussion and team projects. In order to ensure that students are familiar with the tools of radio and television production, the first lecture begins with getting to know what the students are familiar with in terms of radio and television production. Based on a diagnostic assessment of their overall familiarity with the course, the general review is used as a reminder of the pre-requisite skills needed for successful completion of the course. My teaching design and strategies are heavily focused on cooperative learning techniques that involve having students work together to enhance their own, and each other’s learning.
