Scholarly biography

Almas completed his BSc Computer Science (Games) with 1st class Honours at the University of Brighton. Since then he has been teaching on Game Development and Software Engineering courses.

Almas has completed his PhD in Computer Science at the University of Brighton and continues his research career in Software Engineering and Computer Science.

Approach to teaching

My approach to teaching involves striking a balance between theory and its practical use. I typically open with a leading question on a given topic to allow students to understand the process one takes to get to a software solution. This is followed by explaining the prerequsite theory and finished with remarks on implementation details.

I understand and appreciate that each student has their own approach to learning. Hence, for most topics featured in the lectures, I provide, in addition to standard lecture notes, written tutorials and online video materials. This allows students to cover the material at their own pace. Moreover, I frequently organise game jams and hackathons to enable students to practise their new skills and teamwork in a less formal environment.
