My primary aim as a teacher is to encourage and facilitate learning. I usually encourage students to criticize everything they read and hear. I have been teaching courses as micro and macroeconomics as well as econometrics to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. To encourage them do so i usually spark debates where either they have to debate each other or me. In some cases this leads me to new understanding of some concept which i will be able to see from their point of view. This helps me in designing strategies to approach topics that students find to be difficult. My expectations for my students education is driven by the fact that they should leave classroom with more questions then they came in with. This usually facilities following lectures discussion and help them understand the concept since they will have ample time thinking about it. Despite my firm belief that designing a strategy is very important to learning, not all students favorably to my teaching. Given that students nowadays focus on their grades rather than the knowledge they receive, it is difficult to convince all the students that learning does not equate with high grades. Accordingly, one has to be prepared to shift his strategies of teaching with time and equip oneself with methodologies that help students learn with achieving the grades which for they are aiming. All in all, I usually make sure students are aware of my commitment to their learning and I treat them fairly. It is very exciting when a student learn something new every day and I feel it is my duty that part of that new thing should come from the courses I teach. Although, it might seem too big to claim but I encourage my student to ask questions in and outside classes and to be willing to accept different and contradicting answers. Those conflicting answers usually awaken the curiosity of the young people I teach and it help them excel in their studies and learn further. I’m very happy to be in the education field as this keeps me learning new things and keeps me sharp in the way of thinking. To me seeing potential in all students is important and that all of them will excel in their own way.
