Phd. Omer Muhie Eldeen TAHA

- Lecturer -

Dr. Omer Muhie Eldeen Taha senior lecturer in the department of civil engineering, Ishik University. He holds a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering, M.Sc. in Geotechnical Engineerin from Tikrit University in Iraq and a Ph.D. in Geotechnical Engineering from the National University of Malaysia. His research interests are concerned with soil improvement and soil stabilization. A particular focus has been on the soil volume change due to the desiccation. Other interests include behaviaor of soil-nanomaterial mixture.

My Teaching philosophy is :

Teaching is a process of instilling the concepts and necessary skills for life-long learning, in addition to team participation, with an individual. The student will ultimately leave the protective environment of the ‘educational system’ to enter society as, hopefully, a contributing entity. When this occurs, it is vitally important to have the ability to ‘teach one’s self’ and effectively collaborate with others, in order to manage and process the problems and issues that are presented during life. I believe this is necessary for the continued growth of humanity.

An important characteristic of effective teaching at the college level is the use of research results to enhance the student learning experience. Geotechnical Engineering is one of my primary research areas; my work in this area focuses on research that provides useful teaching, advising, and curriculum development techniques to civil engineering educators. I then use the results from this research to continuously work on improving my teaching approach. As is true with any such attempts, not all of my improvement ideas are successful, but I would much rather try new ideas and approaches in an attempt to keep improving as a teacher than never try something new out of fear that it won’t work. I constantly push my students to extend themselves beyond their comfort zone as they face new experiences, so it’s only fair to do the same to myself.

In order to achieve the ultimate goal of student learning, I strive to implement strategies that create a collaborative and safe atmosphere and encourage the application of knowledge to new situations. I believe that these strategies help students become ready and able to utilize their knowledge in their studies and in their future employment.
