Dr. Hitesh considers teaching a significant and rewarding part of his career. He has experience in teaching as an instructor for a number of courses. Challenges in instructing graduate and postgraduate students for his is finding ways to bring the students down into the nuts and bolts of the course and develop a system-level design approach without squandering their initial enthusiasm from the higher-level discussion. He found that allowing breadth in their final thesis/project report let the students explore any aspect of the topic of their interest while the tests and programming assignments provided a more hands-on working knowledge of computer algorithms in real-life implementation. His aim is to make frequent use of examples and motivate ideas by placing them in the context of both their applications and abstract generalizations. He favours a tutorial style of teaching that mixes lecturing with problem sessions in which students apply the ideas they are learning. This changes lectures from a passive experience to an interactive one and helps the teacher correct misapprehensions early on before the student’s tackle homework assignments on their own.
Dr Hitesh taught various computer science and engineering course in his academic career. In computer science and engineering, students are exposed to a diverse range of courses that cover fundamental concepts, practical skills, and advanced topics relevant to the field of computing and technology. The curriculum is designed to equip students with a strong foundation in computer science theory, programming languages, algorithms, data structures, software engineering, and hardware design. Some of the key courses Dr. Hitesh taught in computer science and engineering programs include Application Containerization, Build and Release Management, Advanced Java Programming, Advanced Data Structure, Advanced DBMS, etc.
