REQUIREMENTS FOR ACHIEVING CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT OF TEACHING STAFF TO DEVELOP STUDENTS' SKILLS IN UNIVERSITIES AN EXPLORATORY STUDY OF THE OPINIONS OF SEVERAL FACULTY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF DUHOK.
The major challenge that higher education institutions face is represented in their ability to formulate a vision of a sound method, adopt a clear message, goals, and appropriate objectives to adopt distinct strategies in accomplishing their tasks, leading to quality in performance, then compete, bypassing traditional teaching methods that lead to stop growing and only to survive. Accordingly, the university student must be trained to reformulate the ideas and theories he studies in his language. That is, formulating it in a way that makes it more clear, useful, or simple, and the study adopted the descriptive survey approach to provide the necessary treatments for the research problem through the adoption of a questionnaire form to collect the primary data required by the nature of the problem, as (40) questionnaires were distributed, which included teachers with higher scientific ranks and advanced staff in the faculty at the university. The hypothesis on which the study is based appears through the necessity of adopting the development of students’ skills and talents through the continuous education of the teacher to improve his performance. Therefore, this study came as an attempt to determine the possibility of developing the creative skills of university students by adopting continuous education to improve teaching performance by the university under study through (encouraging sustainable parallel thinking) and organizing information based on strategies that develop students’ skills and achieve creative thinking for students, leading to the most distinguished and “creative” performance. Thus, the study dealt with a group of basic topics that represent the focus of our discussion, as well as other aspects that were presented. As the study presented its scope within the first chapter, the conceptual framework for creative education and the development of students’ skills and the development of creative thinking within the second chapter, and the third chapter dealt with the conceptual framework for continuing education to improve teaching performance and its implications for the development of students skills. The study presented a set of conclusions, the most important of which was considering modern methods of teaching as one of the most ways that contribute to increasing knowledge attainment. Therefore, it is of great importance in developing teaching methods, simplifying knowledge, and forming practical and applied skills among the learners of the students.
