Teaching Philosophy To me, teaching is giving, and to give, the instructors have to ensure sustainable studying and learning habits that are tracked by insightful thinking and continuous improvement. Whenever I learn, no matter how vast in quantity or high in quality learning process I am following, I always come to a fact, that there are still infinite areas of knowledge that need to be explored, and I know clearly that I will never reach an end, nevertheless learning means continuous trying as well. Teaching to me is a journey toward a common goal, the road to it is full of amusements and minimally boring in the same time it could be hard and tough. However, the outcomes should worth the spent efforts. Nevertheless, how students could walk the journey of learning if not convinced about the outcomes and are not fascinated by the subject? Here arise my role. I belief in encouraging the students to respect their study field, to value their science subjects and to enjoy them. I think that one of my main strengths is my ability to guide the students to become better learners and enthusiastic professionals in the field by showing them the importance and interdisciplinary nature of it. My most important tools are demonstrating the broad base of the subject, recall previous knowledge of the students and relating the new information they get with those obtained from daily life and media. As well as making, the learning process more comfortable and more satisfactory as much as possible. These could be achieved by several teaching approaches and/or settings. One of these is through using small group learning, which is one of my favorite methods in addition to journal club. Such methods give the student the chance to actively contribute in learning processes and pave the way for more fruitful learning experiences based on what educationalists called Constructivist teaching theory, which is a learning theory, based on the belief that learning occurs as learners are actively involved in construction of knowledge. Furthermore, I am sure that interactive learning environment is the best for the instructor and learner, through it, I can measure the progress of my student, find the weakness and the strength in the course materials, student and even in me as an instructor. I am sure I do not know everything but I am certainly sure that I have the professional ability, scientific strength and tools to support the students to learn and achieve their goals. During my practice of duties, I continually become more knowledgeable than the previous year. Since I am a learner too, I am always a student and I will continue to be so deliberately and happily.
