Dr. Abu Sayeed Mohammad Noman is an Assistant Professor in the Department of English and Humanities at BRAC University where he has been teaching since 2010.

As a Graduate Research Assistant at Temple University, he has conducted his doctoral research on Afrocentricity and Postmodernism, and earned his PhD in 2018.

Dr. Noman sees himself more as a facilitator than as a teacher in the classroom. He believes the classroom is the space that belongs to students, and thinks that his job as the facilitator is to utilize his expertise to create an environment in that space for students to actively engage in the learning process through critical thinking. Thus, through interactive and collaborative pedagogical approaches, Dr. Noman makes his students take control of their own learning experiences in meeting the learning objectives.
