In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful
I, as an Asst. Prof. at Salahaddin University-Erbil, strongly believes that the existence of the lecturers’ logbook is hugely beneficial. Due to the fact that it displays the records of every lecturer’s activities during the period of one year; for instance, showing the lecturer’s achievements, and the amount of effort he/she put into work to serve the nation and create a successful, confident, and well-educated generation for the future; in order to have the ability to serve themselves and the community. In other words, a generation that is literate and intellectual makes them capable of pursuing and finding useful information. In addition, students must participate in the theory discussions with their lecturer and their colleagues. Therefore, I always try to bring the students into a brief discussion by asking them several questions, before commencing the lecture so as to test their previous knowledge about the subject that I am about to explain. I also explain the significance of the subject, only after that I start my lectures.
Finally, I hope someday, we as lecturers, will be free of collateral issues to enable us to be more enthusiastic about being a better teacher for the students and achieving more frequent scientific researches using better methods same as the researches achieved in the developed countries.
