Teaching Experience
Three years of experience in teaching undergraduate courses on Chemistry and Materials Science

Courses Taught
General Chemistry; Nanomaterials synthesis and nanotechnology; Organic electronics: materials and devices; Instrumentals analysis; Physical chemistry experiment.  

Teaching philosophy
For decades science courses have been taught through traditional lectures and laboratory exercises. The traditional way of teaching is not adequate to achieve the intended learning outcome of a particular course/subject. For teaching discovery-enriched science subjects, there must be an approach of "scientific teaching," which explains the concept of science at its best-experimental, rigorous, and with solid evidences. Scientific teaching will help global universities to accelerate the reform of science education. I intend to acquire resources to implement effective instructional methods, which include group-presentations in lectures, inquiry-based laboratories, and interactive class room activities.
