Incorporating Problem Based Learning into Social Justice Classrooms
The Incorporating Problem-Based Learnings into Social Justice Classrooms project will look to address student mental health on campus by engaging action-oriented pedagogies in the classroom allowing students to operationalize theory into practice. This project incorporates problem-based learnings or PBLs as a proven tool to support student mental health in classrooms, incorporate social justice principals, develop experiential job readiness skills, and promote critical thinking skills.

Notes and Cases to Prepare Future Professional Accountants in taxation and Help tax Literacy
Students in (BCom/MAcc programs) preparing themselves to become Chartered Professional Accountants (CPA) and future citizens, face numerous challenges with the complexity and constant changes of Canadian tax legislation. However, few published resources are available to summarize and simplify the tax rules. This project aims at offering integrated resources about knowledge (notes) and practical application with real life situation (cases). The notes may also contribute to the tax literacy effort for the community in accessing resources.

Cyber Security Katas: Practicing Cyber Defence Strategy Development with Scenario-Based Learning
Developing effective cyber defences requires identifying security concerns and designing solutions to address those concerns under various constraints. To become capable of doing this well, software engineering students need opportunities to practice and hone the associated skills and techniques. This project aims to explore the effectiveness of scenario-based cyber security teaching and learning by developing a collection of cyber security katas; scenarios and exercises designed to practice cyber defence strategy development in real-world contexts.
Social WorkFaculty of Public Affairs
Teaching Mental Health Social Work from a Lived Experience Perspective
This project envisions the potential of lived experience storytelling to inform mental health social work education and to disrupt and transform learner perspectives on mental health, mental health ‘care’ and recovery. Based on principles of epistemic justice, the project brings people with lived experience (PWLE) into the classroom and into conversation around the co-creation of mental health curriculum in social work. Identifying and integrating enduring learning resources created by PWLE further enrich this project.
Civil and Environmental Engineering Faculty of Engineering and Design
Integration of training in matters of Indigenous inclusion in the civil and environmental engineering undergraduate curriculum
This project seeks to develop purpose-built Indigenous Knowledge Bundles for the undergraduate streams in civil and environmental engineering, and integrate them organically into the revised, modernized curriculum. The project is a part of a broader initiative at Carleton University to integrate such training into the civil and environmental engineering programmes nation-wide and to ensure appropriate accreditation requirements by Engineers Canada.
The Professional Achievement Awards recognize outstanding professional achievements at Carleton University for professional librarians and instructors.

Ahmed’s teaching philosophy is built on the belief that students inherently want to learn, and an instructor’s role is to remove what he defines as learning hurdles. He aims to do this through 4 avenues: sparking student curiosity through well defined and designed learning objectives and assessments, through humanizing the student-teacher interaction, through a process of continuous pedagogical improvement based on feedback and using technology to overcome logistical challenges.
Research Support ServicesMacOdrum Library
Joël is responsible for coordinating and leading a subject area within the Research Support Services department at the Library.

Political ScienceFaculty of Public Affairs
Flexible pedagogy which requires interactive, collaborative, and facilitative teaching forms the basis of my teaching philosophy in the Department of Political Science. I regularly design courses based on a key question: how can I make the topic and debates approachable to my students? Addressing this question forms the basis of my pedagogy and teaching philosophy at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Students highly appreciate this method and the learning space it creates.
Law and Legal StudiesFaculty of Public Affairs
I leverage Carleton University’s Teaching and Learning Services in the design of my courses to support the advancement of anti-oppressive teaching and learning practices in the classroom and beyond. My fourth year seminars incorporate Indigenous Knowledge Bundles, and I work with Carleton’s Department of Equity and Inclusive Communities in order to ensure my approach to course delivery is trauma informed. To produce diverse learning experiences, I often incorporate Carleton University Art Gallery’s exhibitions in order to provide fresh content to think through course concepts.
PsychologyFaculty of Arts and Social Sciences
My academic and research interests fall into two categories. The first falls under the umbrella of forensic psychology and centers on the assessment of dynamic risk and protective factors, parole and offender reintegration, and the empirical prediction of correctional outcomes. My second area of interest relates to the scholarship of teaching and learning. I have spent the last decade working in various instructional capacity and am passionate about exploring approaches to foster student engagement and learning.
As a dedicated part-time professor with a passion for knowledge and learning, I am delighted at the prospect of helping students develop valuable skills for their lives and future careers. I know it is my responsibility to ensure everything I do for my students has the highest degree of excellence. I extend this to my teaching and research to ensure that students understand the material in an engaging manner, not just to pass a test.
