In the department of physics, we believe that the theory and experiment are the two sides of the physics coin. For this reason, we have a corresponding laboratory for each theoretical course. Our undergraduate laboratories are equipped with modern facilities that are continuously renovated. The department of physics is implementing a new concept in teaching its freshman courses and laboratories. These are going to be conducted in an integrated way, where the instructor introduces a theory then runs the corresponding experiment followed by a problem session. A video showing the most recent applications of the subject is played afterwards. Before coming to the class, the student will be provided online with another video that illustrates the theory, such concept is referred to as flipped classroom. All these blended learning techniques are applied in a round table environment, which allows peer instruction. It is important to mention here that our department is unique in the middle-east region in applying this interactive studio classroom concept. This initiative greatly helps in achieving one of our major goals to reshape the teaching philosophy from being instructor-centered to be student-centered.
