As engineers and scientists, we learn about the world apply what we have learned to improve it. My job as an educator is to guide students in such learning. I foster thorough understanding of fundamental concepts students can use to solve real world problems. Specifically, I offer students terminologies, methods, and learning resources and guide them as they satiate their own curiosities about fundamental scientific and engineering concepts. My aspiration is always to guide each student to mastery of the relevant fundamentals. I know mastery has been achieved when students can successfully apply these concepts to solving challenging problems.
I was a learning center instructor for this course, responsible for leading learning center sections, helping students troubleshoot their designs, teaching about effective technical communication, and grading technical reports and presentations. Additionally, I helped create exams and engineering demonstrations for the lecture part of the course.
My responsibilities for this course were intermittent between those of a teaching assistant and a course instructor. I was responsible for grading homeworks and answering ques tions as well as developing the list of course topics and giving class and lab lectures.Click here to view: Teaching philosophy, Future Goals
