I believe that the relationship between teacher and student at the university level must be built on an interactive basis. In other words, the role of the teacher should not only be to provide knowledge, but the role of the student should be limited to receiving knowledge. Education in general, and university education in particular, in light of the influx of a huge amount of knowledge, its rapid change and obsolescence, and the diversity of its sources, has become based, in addition to providing the cognitive aspect, on two basic interactive principles: teaching the student how to access the knowledge and skills he needs. Teaching the student how to employ this knowledge and skills in the field in which he will work. Teaching the student how to access the knowledge and skills he needs. Teaching the student how to employ this knowledge and skills in the field in which he will work.
