Muhammad Asif

ASSISTANT PROFESSOR

Muhammad Asif teaches English language as an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Information Technology, University of Central Punjab-Lahore. In addition, he has taught at the University Of Wisconsin- Madison WI, USA as a Fulbright Foreign Language Teacher. He also worked for seven and a half years as a Senior Lecturer in English at NAMAL College, Mianwali- an Associate College University of Bradford, UK, in the capacity of Lecturer in English at the National University of Modern Languages Islamabad, Pakistan and as Head of English Department at RANA University in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Rather than sticking to one particular teaching methodology, Mr. Muhammad Asif takes an eclectic teaching approach with undergraduate students as well as communicative (interactionist) approach with the post graduate students. He believes in creating a friendly environment where students can easily share their thoughts and are able to enhance their learning. Moreover, Mr. Asif has the experience of working with students from varying backgrounds and hold his students’ social, cultural, and linguistic background in high esteem. He has always believed that learning is a never ending process; it is from cradle to grave. This belief compelled him to follow knowledge like a sinking star.
