    • In my design studios, I employ an open design process approach and introduce my students to real human and environmental design problems .
    • I believe that the design process should be based on understanding people from a social and cultural perspective.
    • I develop and teach my courses with emphasis on IT based interactive pedagogy employing several online platforms; such as Blackboard and Online Course System.
    • I also encourage the utilization of computer based application to aid the design creative process. I employed several new design studio teaching techniques such as Virtual Design Studio and Paperless Design Studio. I participated in teaching graduate courses that focused on architectural research methods.
