Tareq Daher earned his Bachelors in Computer Science from Mutah University in Jordan. He pursued a Master’s of Instructional Technology at the University of Nebraska –Lincoln while working as the coordinator for the Student Technology Program on the UNL campus. Currently, Dr. Daher works as the Director for the Engineering and Computing Education Core at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. Dr. Daher collaborates with engineering faculty to document and research the integration of innovative instructional strategies and technologies in their classrooms and designs and delivers professional development programs for faculty in the college. 


My research focuses on the integration of online technologies for teaching and learning. More specifically, it examines how teaching and learning theory combined with study systems developed with sound empirical research can improve learning in STEM fields. In addition, I explore and research the role of implementing online, blended, and flipped models in enhancing instruction and learning in Engineering programs. My work bridges quantitative and qualitative methods.
