Prof. Dr. Sacide Vural becomes the President of ILEDAK
Prof. Dr. Sacide Vural has been elected as the Chairman of the Communication Education Evaluation Accreditation Board (İLEDAK).
Prof. Dr. Sacide Vural, who stated that since 1989, which is the establishment of the Communication Research Association (İLAD), has been actively working on communication since 1989, said: "We do the quality and evaluation of the undergraduate programs in terms of accreditation, including the communication programs within the communication faculties and different faculties. Turkey to the European Higher Education Area project has participated in the meetings held in Prague in 2001. As a result of our country's entry into the Bologna process, the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) has been adopted with the harmonization of higher education programs to Europe. The transition process was completed in 2010. Turkey is a member of basic umbrella organizations in Europe (ENQA) European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education. The Higher Education Quality Board (YÖKAK) naturally operates within the framework of the basic policies of this organization. As ILEDAK, the Association of Communication Researches Association (İLAD) and the accreditation committee of this association, we, under the umbrella of YÖKAK, evaluate the undergraduate programs at national level.”
Emphasizing the importance of key elements such as how the accreditation process works, the program's mission, vision, the institution's strategic plan, and regulations in the accreditation process, Vural said that the coronavirus pandemic that surrounds the world affects the accreditation studies.
