In recent years, the academic world has been facing challenging transformations in the field of teaching and learning that require lecturers to refer to and adapt to twenty-first-century skills. The Quality, Excellence, and Evaluation Unit works to improve teaching, increase its effectiveness and promote pedagogical innovation in a way that will make the learning experience of all students meaningful and, at the same time, will also advance the academic staff members on a personal level.
The college’s commitment to excellence in teaching is expressed in a variety of activities whose purpose is to evaluate, improve and promote the methods of teaching, learning, and evaluation in the college; and to help lecturers face the challenges of academic teaching in the twenty-first century:
- Advice and personal guidance for new lecturers and teaching assistants on teaching and evaluation issues.
- Imparting teaching skills to senior staff and teaching assistants through workshops, seminars, and customized personal counseling.
- Organization of teaching, learning, and evaluation seminars, including digitization-integrated teaching (Prizma).
- Continuous monitoring of new trends in teaching methods and new teaching technologies in teaching and learning, and their implementation in the college, in cooperation with the ‘Innovative Pedagogical Space’.
- Holding workshops on appropriate traditional and alternative evaluation, including guidance on the intelligent use of various evaluation tools, developing new tools, analyzing the results of evaluation processes, and drawing conclusions.
- Running a Moodle website with up-to-date teaching, learning, and evaluation information and resources.
- Conducting teaching surveys, analyzing the findings, extracting lessons and providing feedback, publishing the names of the outstanding lecturers in each department, and awarding evaluation certificates.
- Leading the evaluation processes for the teaching quality of academic staff members (including observing/photographing), producing reports and analyzing them, and providing personal feedback to improve teaching (frontal, synchronous, asynchronous, and hybrid).
