As adjunct instructor of Arabic, I strive to educate about Arabic, the language, culture, and art. Currently, I am introducing Arabic calligraphy to our students as a skill and a cultural treasure. My professional focus, however, is teaching and specifically online instruction. Most recently, I have become interested in open licensing of educational resources and earned certification in areas like research and data management and creative commons (CC) licensing. As a librarian, I am passionate about helping researchers and students clearly identify their needs, seek to inspire curiosity, and assist them in contributing new knowledge.
