External Training of Executives and Evaluators

EPDAD’s executives have gained knowledge and experience by attending training and scientific activities related to quality assurance and accreditation in Turkey and abroad. The most prominent examples of these activities are as follows:

The Council of Higher Education - World Bank National Education Development Project (1999-2001) Teacher Education Standards and Accreditation Process Development Activities: A number of EPDAD’s executives and members of the Council for Accreditation (EFAK) actively participated in these activities or attended the training sessions held as part of this project. In addition, some of EPDAD’s executives, consultants, and evaluators attended research and investigation programs abroad as part of the same project.

National and International Scientific Meetings: National and international scientific meetings play a major role in the development of EPDAD’s staff. The most important of such activities is the EPDAD International Teacher Education and Accreditation Congress (ITEAC). Team leaders and evaluators who take part in EPDAD’s program evaluation and accreditation processes attend this congress, which has been held regularly since 2019 EPDAD’s staff is also encouraged to attend other scientific meetings.

National Quality Organizations Consultation and Sharing Meetings: Quality organizations in Turkey have been meeting once a year since 2015 to share their knowledge and experience and assess common challenges and opportunities.
