Dr. Mostafa Bassiouni’s Reflection
September 4, 2013
I have a strong passion for teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in computer science and information technology. For undergraduate courses, I emphasize providing students with a good understanding of current techniques, improving their problem-solving capability, enhancing their basic computer skills, and preparing them to become part of the proficient IT workforce.
I strive to make the assessments in my courses frequent and ongoing throughout the semester. In undergraduate courses I typically give seven or eight quizzes, two written assignments, and three exams to keep students engaged in every module covered in class. I emphasize problem-solving questions for undergraduate student assessment, but I also use true/false, multiple-choice, and fill-in-the-blank questions.
