Dr. Salah Al-Majeed

Academic Subject Leader (Head) of Engineering Technologies

With several years of experience in running academia; teaching, research and management, leading research groups and managing people nationally and internationally, I understand the hard work, excitement, dedication and rewards involved in a successful university.

Teaching goals

We use a variety of different teaching styles and learning activities, depending on the type of module and the learner group. We view learning as a socio-cultural, constructivist and interactionist process in the Vygotskian tradition. Our main goals are always to help students develop their intellectual, practical and creative potential and to encourage their personal development. Our teaching puts the learner at the centre. We aim to provide a safe and interactive learning space, design work programmes with clear progression routes, and create study materials and tasks which take into account different learner types and mixed-level learner groups.
