I am a constructivist professor, not an instructivist. I am a knowledge facilitator not a knowledge dispenser. Students are the central part of the learning educational process. It is my belief that students are capable of developing a high level of communication skills that reflect their knowledge and professionalism as good learners. Cooperative learning and teamwork create a good learning environment that may enhance their communication skills. The way students communicate their thoughts and ideas is appreciated and respected by other classmates and the instructor if it maintains a good level of communication. Mutual respect and understanding between classmates and the instructor are key factors that determine the student's communication level.
* TEACHING AND COMMUNICATION SKILLS
* PUBLIC SPEAKING AND LECTURING SKILLS
* WRITTEN AND VERBAL TRANSLATION SKILLS in Arabic and English
* COMPUTER AND DATA ENTRIES SKILLS:
- Windows operated systems (95-2000)
- Apple Computer: Power Macintosh -I MACS
- Office Microsoft 97-20003
- Internet web Browsers: Netscape, Microsoft Explores and more.
My interests include playing with computers, visiting historical places around the world, learning about the cultures of different people, having international friendships, listening to soft music, making humor, and enjoying the company of intelligent, good people who have the sense of humor.
