Chair of Steering Committee - Gulf Programming Contest.
My strong mathematical background, teaching and working experience in both fields of mathematics and computer science for the last 31 years, make me well-prepared to teach a vast range of courses from both disciplines. The most interesting, challenging, and rewarding part of a course development is the course material preparation. Good course material must be interesting, clear, relevant, and match the student’s ability and background. Course assignments and labs must also be written in a manner that explains clearly what the students are expected to do, how their work will be evaluated, and the effect of that on the course outcomes. Teaching is not a process of passing information and knowledge to the students, it is a joint venture between the faculty and the students to sharpen their problem solving and critical thinks skills. I believe that in order for the students to benefit from an instructor, the students need to feel respected and their work acknowledged.
