The workshops focused on QA in Higher Education (HE), Bangladesh National Qualification Framework (BNQF), different learning domains of Bloom’s Taxonomy, the necessity of External Quality Assessment (EQA), Continuous Professional Development (CPD), Pedagogical Challenges, Outcome-based Curriculum Design Process, Learning Outcome Domains of BNQF, preparation of course plan, mapping Teaching Learning Assessment (TLAs) with Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs) and exercise on mapping, Self-Assessment in Accreditation Process, and Academic Strategic Planning, which will surely be a helping hand for the teachers to enhance their teaching learning methods. Overall, it was a very intensive but interactive and informative training program which would deepen the knowledge of the participants and enable them to contribute to the QA process.
