I am teaching various undergraduate and graduate chemistry courses; these courses include: general chemistry, analytical chemistry , instrumental methods of analysis, electroanalytical chemistry, analytical spectroscopy, separation methods, seminar, senior projects
Coordination of Classes
I coordinated the freshman chemistry lecture course Chem 102 for the academic years 94/95 and 95/96 (30 sections, more than 900 students, each semester) and the freshman chemistry course CHEM 101 during the summer term of 2001/2002.
Course Material and Curricula Development
· I chaired a Departmental Committee that was concerned in revising the Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry undergraduate programs in the academic year 1999/2000
· I participated in selection of experiments and testing their applicability, writing hand outs to
students, modifying and improving the experimental procedures, and compiling integrated
manuals for experiments in General chemistry, Analytical chemistry and instrumental
· I participated actively in the development and revision (in few occasions) of curricula for the undergraduate and graduate analytical chemistry and instrumental analysis courses and in the general chemistry courses. I participated in the development of two upper level undergraduate chemistry courses, namely: Environmental analysis and Trace Analysis.
· I coordinated and participated with other colleagues in the establishment of a laboratory portion for a general chemistry course taught to Industrial Management students.
My students evaluation for teaching was invariably excellent over the years of my service. I was nominated more than once (the last was in the year 98/99) by the Department for the best teacher award in the College of Sciences.
I have received the distinguished teaching award for the College of Sciences in the academic year 1988/1989.
Supervision of Senior Undergraduate and Graduate Students
· Supervision of few senior research projects (Chem 411 and Chem 412).
· Thesis advisor for 3 M.S. chemistry students.
· Thesis committee member for 7 M.S. chemistry students.
· Thesis committee member for 2 Ph.D chemical engineering students
