I believe that the relationship between the teacher and the student at the university level should be built on an interactive basis. In other words, the role of the teacher should not be to provide knowledge only and the role of the student should be limited to receiving knowledge. Education in general, and university in particular, in the light of the flow of a vast amount of knowledge and the speed of change, obsolescence and diversity of sources, has become, in addition to the introduction of the knowledge, on the basis of two basic interactive: teaching students how to access the knowledge and skills needed. Teach the student how to employ this knowledge and skills in the field in which he will work.
