I recently applied to a position in the automotive industry and was fortunate enough to receive an interview. While it wasn’t a requirement, I decided to also make a video highlighting my qualifications and interests for this specific position/company. Enjoy!

One thing I love to do when teaching review sessions is be creative. I normally get a good response from students when they see me try to go above and beyond. I noticed that in the past, I had trouble trying to get students involved. So I decided to spice things up a bit this time around…
I’ve been teaching review session for a while. Normally what I’d do is post the questions and complete solutions on our website after the review session for students to access. Starting last semester I only started posting the questions and final correct answers (instead of the full solutions). So students would either have to attend the review session to get the right answer or attempt the questions on their own.
This stirred a lot of controversy among students, but I didn’t let that bother me. I literally got over 100 nasty emails from students complaining about how they are somehow owed the full solutions to the review questions. On a side note, the review sessions I hold are coordinated by the Accounting Society on campus and have absolutely nothing to do with the course itself. It is merely a service that we offer as an opportunity for students to learn.
If you really need to know, the truth is that students will learn better this way. Once what ended up happening (last year), was one of the questions that we had on the review showed up on the exam… EXACTLY IDENTICAL. I was surprised to learn that despite the fact that students had seen the exact same question merely days before, many still ended up solving the question incorrectly. This spoke volumes to me and really only meant one thing: When provided with full solutions, many students choose not to actually solve the questions themselves and instead simply review the solutions. So that’s what happened last year. This semester I wanted to get that point across in a clever way. So this is what happened…
Here is a slide show that I made…

Here is my speech at my brother Khalid, and his beautiful wife’s wedding. Love you both!
So I took a normal Honda commercial and spiced it up a little. Let me know what ya think!
I was in the middle of teaching an accounting review session, and this student starts yelling at me!
A presentation about “core competencies” me and my group made for a strategy course. We talked about Honda. A lot. The limit was supposed to be 5 min. lol.
A few clips from presentations from my ECON*4800 – Strategic Management course in Fall 2009.
