Teaching

My teaching experience spans over 15 years at four higher education institutions in Canada, and two in the UAE. I have also delivered corporate training courses, and several tutorials at international conferences. I started teaching at the university-level in 1996 while I was an M.Sc. student at the University of New Brunswick. My teaching fosters critical thinking and problem solving, and imparts students' lifelong learning skills. I attempt to make students aware of their own abilities by providing a framework for a process-oriented understanding of technical concepts, and guiding them through the development of competence skills that emphasize interdependencies and feedback. Students learn to recognize, and avoid the traps of unstructured or unconnected details.

My teaching revolves around my life commitment as a second generation educator, to serve students and to effect societal change.

With the rise of, and somewhat successful, massive open online courses (MOOC), I strongly believe that the job of the instructor is being transformed from delivering knowledge in the classroom to designing learning experiences.

Some of my innovations in teaching include:
