goals of the University through developing the teaching staff skills in
domains of teaching, evaluation, research, tutorship, and guidance in

great significance of ( FDC ) lies in supporting , enhancing, and
achieving the principles of distinguish for a teaching staff, who is
considered the core of teaching-learning process, due to his/her
experience, and knowledge transferring. A teaching staff is considered

workshops that are related to morals of college teaching, teaching
methods, college circumstance management, evaluation, college exams, and
college rules and instructions relevant to teaching staff recruit. FDC
also presents a series of various modern training courses , seminars,
conferences, and activities related to the fulfillment of the center's
goals and tasks. Such achievements are reconsidered and censored
periodically due to technological development, teaching staff request,
its demand, or according to the center of board of directors initiation,
according to the strategic goal in mind that training does not part
from teaching, since teaching can't take place unless practicing it in
reality comes first.
the other hand, FDC pays a great deal of attention to students'
evaluations of their teaching staff performance. The center started
applying a system of teaching staff evaluation electronically round the
first and second semester academic year, this trial still goes on up to
this moment. The performance evaluation corresponds in accordance with

need for that, depending on scientific studies outcomes in this
domains. Such evaluations are kept electronically in a system specified
