My teaching philosophy depends on two essential points: 1- How to transfer information to students during lecturing bearing in mind that the level of understanding may vary greatly between students, so effective communication is one of my concern 2- In electrical engineering, applications in real world is the goal of studying different theorems. Thus connecting whatever I teach to real world is one of my core coals. As an instructor, bearing in mind that I am responsible for the clear and deliberate communication of course material. Normally I start with the identification of course goals and thereafter what are expected in the course, and in order to be sure that students have the adequate bases for the course, intensive questions about their level concerning the course items when introduced will be conducted and in conclusion one or two lectures will be devoted to support their previous background. That because I believe that only when the back ground is strong, the communication with students will be easier. My experience has shown that generally students learn theorems better when provided with examples, thus whenever heavy theorems are provided I am trying hard to provide examples especially numerical one (if applicable) to clarify the theorems points. Bearing in minds that engineering tools being applied to solve real-world problems , so involving real world problems in subject can increase interest in a subject, therefore always I am trying to conducts some applications hold the same ideas and here normally I am trying to increase the interest of the students to the subjects by providing as assignment a number of related projects with presentation from real world applications. To worm the lecturing process I attract the attention of students by many questions and encourage them to ask questions and express their points of view and provide ideas for the current subject.
