On April 12 the Presidency of the University of Salahaddin organized a seminar on Teaching Quality Assurance (TQA), a process which has been implemented in certain colleges and departments in the University on a pilot basis.
The seminar was attended by the MOHESR QA team that answered questions on the QA process. The Director of QA at the Ministry stated that TQA is the beginning of a long-term process involving administrative, curricular, graduate programs and other aspects of higher education.
While realizing that there are many challenges that lie ahead, such as the inadequate infrastructure of some colleges, equipment, number of faculty within departments, etc., faculty showed great enthusiasm for TQA and volunteered to participate in the pilot project. This indicates a willing spirit on the part of faculty as well as their drive and determination for the TQA process to succeed.
