Pedagogical Conferences and Seminars

In order to acquire excellence in teaching, I actively take part in teachers' development and training programs, where we learn and refresh e ective teaching and learning techniques. Further, we get an opportunity to meet colleagues from di erent disciplines, which could bring new ideas and innovative techniques for e ective teaching.
  1. Member Adjudication Committee, the Association of Atlantic Universities (AAU) Teaching Showcase, Learning in a Global Society, Wolfville, October 20, 2007, reviewed 30 applications on the following themes: 1) Cultural Awareness, 2) The First Year Experience, 3) Embracing Diversity, and 4) Learning Technologies.
  2. Organized a session on Striking a balance between academic and non-academic commit- ments," in Engaged Learning Symposium, Acadia University, Wolfville, March 15-16, 2007, participants: Michael Leiter, Nancy Clarke, and Brian Wilson.

      In academics we are expected to excel in teaching, research, and service. Whereas our non-academic commitments include giving some time to us, to our immediate and extended family members, and to our community at large. Although it is rela- tively easy (or tempting) to focus on a few responsibilities, the struggle in keeping a balance between all of these commitments is very rewarding. If we keep a proper balance between teaching, research, and service, these academic commitments re- inforce one another; in other words, they become complementing to one another rather than competing. Similarly, giving proper time to oneself - body, mind, and spirit, to our family members and close friends, and to our neighbors and commu- nity at large, we enjoy high quality living. As we need a village to raise a child, we need a community to achieve our objectives. In this workshop, we shared ideas and practices to enhance teaching and learning in our lectures and courses, as well as maintaining high quality publications and re- search grants. Further, we discussed how to enjoy healthy eating and active lifestyle, and also how to celebrate achievements with our family members, colleagues, and community.

  3. Poster presentation on Enhanced learning using physical objects in classroom lectures," in The Association of Atlantic Universities (AAU) Teaching Showcase, October 2006. 4. Organized a workshop session on Block diagrams to palpable objects," in Dalhousie Confer- ence on University Teaching and Learning (DCUTL), May 2006.
