Twana Tahir, Director of Quality Assurance and Accreditation Office at Komar University of Science and Technology is representing our University in the “Pedagogical Training for Professional Teacher Development” which is designed to support KRG vision of building a professional teacher academy in the future.
The training program is a part of a larger development framework in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. The core of the development is the improvement of education and teachers’ competences in different levels. The intensive training program in Finland includes visits and observations in learning environments such as schools and companies within the region.
The end of the Finnish part of the programme will crystalize the knowing, doing and being into an entity, teacher identity and pedagogical competence that can be applied back in Kurdistan.
