Palestine Polytechnic University, University Lecturer (Architectural Design & Drawing courses)

 Taught many classes; Design 5 Studio, Architectural and civil Engineering Drawings and FreeHand drawings.

 During the first semester, I was selected by the department to represent them in a first time project with cooperation of NGOs. Led the Design students to analyze the accessibility in some buildings and public spaces for PWDs. Then the students proposed solutions for these places to be constructed under the European Union funding.

 Because of the teams' success and achievement in the first villages the funders decided to do this project in other villages, so I voluntarily guided a new group of students to go through the same
process again during the second semester.
