For me teaching philosophy is a measure of social, psychological, technical and professional harmony. My motivation to teach is based on my understanding that teaching and learning are the two main components of a single core with bidirectional reflective relationship. I believe in order to teach you have to be motivated and willing to learn and vice versa. I fully appreciate the difficulties of teaching and learning processes, they are challenging tasks to formulate and implement. I also recognize to explore and accumulate knowledge one must learn and apply the collective experiences of its own learning paths.
I use these general guidelines in formulating processes for my teaching approach.
My Teaching Objectives: As a mentor and an engineering professor, my objectives are
- To communicate effectively with my students on the technical subject.
- To provide my students with a set of tools to discover on their own.
- To make available technical and professional processes to allow my students to apply as a guideline in their discoveries.
My Methods of Instruction:Includes
- To use traditional classroom lectures and laboratory instructions as well as individual and peer group observation and feedback processes.
- To apply instruction technology to the extent necessary in a technical or advanced subjects.
- To use oral and written learning instruments to observe, evaluate and provide feedback to students in a systematic way.
- To motivate each student by understanding their technical, social, cultural and psychological need in the teaching and learning process.
- To hold the professional standard and practices as a guideline to develop the instruction material.
