Ayman El Khatib

Associate Professor


 

 

I am 43 years old dynamic and active person, i love my job and looking always for improvement in my career. I am very much into movies and reading as well as traveling and discovering new world. I got my Bachelor degree from the Lebanese University in 1999, and i was looking for more challenges, i have decided to choose the hardest way and travel to seek more about my career world, i got my Master degree in Physical Therapy for Basic Science from Cairo University in 2005. From 2005 until 2010, i worked in the Gulf Region as Brand Manager and Trainer for beauty/medical machines and that was a great opportunity to visit many countries and get a rich experience in life. Another important decision in my life was to continue my studies and got my PhD in Physical Therapy for Basic Science from Cairo University in 2014. I proudly joined Beirut Arab University, as a lecturer in 2012, in 2014 as Assistant Professor, in 2019 as Associate Professor, and this was one of my best rewards ever.

 

Teaching

Teaching was always one of my hobbies before being part of my job. I enjoy reading and searching for information and deliver them in a simple way and help others especially students to be life long learners.
I strive always to seek new methods of learning and teaching which make the experience as a facilitator richer and funnier.
I try to find the best way to encourage the students to love the contents of each course by involving them in the learning process and by always giving feedback in order to improve this process.
