Tishk International University (Faculty of Education) holds the 10th student conference under the title of
“10th National Young Researchers Conference”.
As Education Faculty, we are working on developing a student agency to raise student’s achievement.
They need to be active participants in their learning. When learners move from being passive recipients
to being much more active in the learning process and actively involved in the decisions about the learning,
then they have greater agency.
Why have students led conferences?
This also relates well to our faculty values of promoting
excellence through being caring, creative, connected, and critical thinkers. In student-led conferences,
the student takes the central role during organizing and presenting along with discussions that help them
to develop the skills required to become an educator and a lifelong learner
Students demonstrate their caring attitude towards their learning by taking personal responsibility for their learning.
It also provides opportunities for students to show their creativity through presenting evidence of their learning.
The process of reflection and self-evaluation supports students to develop critical thinking.

Title: Integrating Online Learning in Kurdistan’s Public Schools
The global epidemic prompted a major shift in educational norms.
Switching to online learning with the usage of digital applications
is one of these new educational trends. As long as the epidemic remains
unexpected, the digital trend in schooling will certainly persist.
The Covid19 pandemic, which was unexpected, aroused the need for online
learning in Kurdistan schools and universities. It has proven that insisting
on classroom learning might not be the best method for learning in schools in
the 21st century during pandemic eras. Traditional professional instructors and
students are being forced to accept the digital world as a result of the usage of
digital technology in education. Our modern society is characterized by being
technologically driven, and schooling is not an exception. With the outbreak
of the pandemic, schools in the Kurdistan region were closed for many months as
a way to combat the spread of the virus. A study was conducted in three public
schools, the participants were students from K through 12 grade and 10 parents
of students. The study found five themes, through thematic analysis, that exemplified
the main obstacles public schools had: illiteracy of teachers in using technological
matters, lack of technological devices, poor internet connection, poor electrical
connection, and the negative perception of students and their parents towards online learning.
