My teaching philosophy is built on the foundation of having a lifetime learning impact on my student. I strive to achieve this goal via designing student learning experience centered on hands-on and experimental learning which encourages critical thinking. I believe students should be actively engaged in their learning process, and therefore all my undergraduate and graduate level course are based on peer-instruction, cooperative, hands-on, and active learning strategies. I also strongly encourage my students to be sensitive to the fact that in the field of bioengineering their work affects the life of those most in need in the society. Therefore, it is important to understand that engineering issues are interconnected with ethical, economical, historical, and cultural aspects of the targeted population of the society.
