Biography: As an educator, I dedicated my life to the teaching profession and I still have a lot to give toward advancement in science and technology. Teaching subject matter as physics, physical science, astronomy, and computer engineering puts a heavy strain and load on the teachers to present it, as well as the students that are trying hard to learn it. This is why I have to keep up with the latest methodology as well as the technologies that pertain to making physics, physical science, astronomy, and engineering more interesting, enjoyable, and most importantly more understandable to students. My ultimate goal in life is to become one of the best instructors that Middle Georgia State University can have and this can and will be achieved via maintaining high expectations and standard in the classes that I do teach along with maintaining the high tech of the latest equipment’s incorporated in the classroom.
As the physics and engineering advisor, I will keep and continue to provide the latest and current information in both fields as to what student’s need to be accepted into these professional programs once they transfer or continue a graduate work at our institution at MGSU or at another big institution. I also keep my posted office hours current and provide a list of the steps that students needs to do before showing up for advising. Finally, I will continue to provide my assistance to the engineering program and make sure the students are well aware of the latest changes in their course curriculum at the other institutions they may well transfer too.
As my colleagues wrote in my peer evaluation for my lecture presentation for my PHYS 2211 Class and he said:” Imad’s class presentation had a good flow pattern which included current course information and scaffolding to support the student’s memory of previously learned trigonometric and vector concepts. Later in the lesson, these concepts were used in typical problems where the student was required to apply solution techniques presented earlier. Also, the lab session following the lecture allowed the students to manipulate a force balance device that further reinforced the sum of force (vectors) concepts from the lecture. Imad’s lecture as he probed deeper into the presented problems. Students were able to follow the implied logic in the problem development. This effort combined with the real problem applications and the lab reinforced the critical thinking skills is what he inspires!

Professional Experience: Five project presentations at each ATE program and AAPT National meeting for physics faculty that I have attended for the past five years. The most Recent Workshop was “Instructional Strategies for Introductory/Technical Physics (ISITP) workshop” on April 11-13, 2016 held at Fox Valley Technical College Appleton, WI. Recently, I attended the AAPT National meeting held in Washington, D.C., this past summer and did a presentation on "Video Analysis" used in introductory Physics Classes. The us and implementations of “Video Analysis” by using Casio Camera to record the video and the document required to do the data collection and analysis along with the calculation that the students are required to perform.
