4. TRAINING AND LECTURING
Being the Director of Geology Department (1992 – 2012), I'm used to present lectures for training of junior geologists in: Geological mapping, Geomorphology, Structural Geology, Engineering Geological mapping, Report writing, Quality Management. Moreover, during attending tens of scientific congresses in and out of Iraq, I'm also well acquainted in lecturing, besides being the Iraqi Representative in the Commission of Compilation of Geological Map of the World, I was use to give lectures about the Geology of Iraq to the other representatives of the commission.
I have also used to prepare workshops, like the one presented to the Kurdistan Institution for Higher Education and Strategic Researches, Sulaimaniyah; about the Geology of Kurdistan (2013) and the one presented to Koya University, dealing with Mineral Resources of Kurdistan (June, 2014).
