On Monday, the 10th of October 2022, the celebration of the fifth Pedagogy training course completion was presented in the Meeting Hall of the University Presidency. In this ceremony, the EPU Rector, Prof. Dr. Edrees Muhamad Tahir Harki, the General Director in the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research Asst. Prof. Dr. Zhala and her delegation were available.
At the beginning of the ceremony, the Erbil Polytechnic University Rector welcomed the Higher Education and Scientific Research delegation, guests, and the Pedagogy Course Participants. He congratulated the Pedagogy course supervisors and attendees and wished them success.
In another part of his speech, his Excellency Prof. Dr. Edrees Muhamad Tahir Harki mentioned the university lecturers’ significant roles, which are the vertebrae of the University who have an essential challenging task in developing the future generation. Our universities always need new lecturers to continue the education process in the right way; for this reason, the pedagogy courses are necessary factors in creating qualified teachers to serve and develop the Kurdistan Region’s future generation. Once again, I congratulated the Pedagogy Course supervisors and the participants and wished them the best of luck.
Later, the Higher Education and Scientific Research Ministry Representative Asst. Prof. Dr. Zhala presented a speech in which she expressed her gratitude towards the University Rector for inviting them to the celebration and appreciated the fifth-course pedagogy supervisors. She talked about the influence of sustainable development of science through producing qualified academic and scientific staff at higher education institutions. She mentioned several valuable points which start by enhancing university lecturers as they are focal points between students and theoretical knowledge. For this reason, teachers always need to update themselves with scientific information to benefit the country’s generation. Thus, we should produce researcher lecturers, not only lecturers or researchers, because researcher lecturers are creators and knowledge seekers who never give up in front of difficulties.
It is worth mentioning that the fifth pedagogy started on 02/02/2022 and was completed on 31/07/2022, in which master and Ph.D. holders participated, and nine lecturers supervised them.
