Since the process of Teaching Quality Assurance (TQA) is practically new and has been introduced and adopted in Kurdistan Universities, it was necessary to present the concept of Quality Assurance and explain its relevant aspects in details. Hence, several workshops were conducted for this purpose by QA team at the Ministry in collaboration with certain USA Universities, basically Appalachian State University which nominated experts in the field. The trainers shared their experience and information with Kurdistan faculty on quality assurance and helped elaborating it through various examples.
Three workshops and a seminar were held from October 2009 and through March 2010 as follows:
- Higher Education and Quality Assurance on 15th-19th Oct, 2009
- The Quality Assurance and Academic Accreditation on 23rd-26th Jan, 2010
- The Basics of Teaching Quality Assurance on 14th Feb, 2010
