WHEEL Project envisages the preparation, implementation, and reporting of replication trainings based on the formation received by the participants of the project. These replications took place in the different partner Libyan HEIs between the 30th of May and the 30th of November of 2022. The objectives of such replication trainings were: to maximize the reach of capacity building activities, to promote knowledge flows within beneficiaries and to ensure long-term sustainability of project results. The chosen topics for these training replications had to be aligned with at least one of the topics covered in Online Workshop I (e.g., Quality Assurance, ICT and/or Governance).

The replication trainings came about both in an online and on-site way and the participation was mostly between 10 and 20 participants. There were differences between universities, both in the way the replication took place (organizing several training sessions or concentrating everything in just a two-day agenda) and the topic chosen.


The University of Zawia (ZU) organized two sessions, the first took place on the 7th of September and was about Quality Assurance and the second took place on the 12th of September and was about Education ICT Platforms. Misurata University (MU) and the Libyan International Medical University (LIMU) chose a similar approach, but the sessions (on the 29th and 30th of November in MU and the 21st of July and 30th of October in LIMU), were merely focused on Governance and Strategic Planning in HEI in the first case and in ICT and Infrastructure in the second case. University of Bright Star (BSU) decided to focus its first replication workshop on Systemic Governance (on the 9th of August) and it's second on Quality Assurance (on the 16th of August).


Alasmarya Islamic University (AIU), on the contrary, delivered 15 training sessions of 2 hours each and they took place between the 15th of August

University of Tripoli (UoT) chose an approach of intensive training, and the replication training was delivered in only one day. The topic chosen by UoT was Governance in HE (“What is good governance”) and occurred, face-to-face, on the 14th of September.

Although the approach and topic differed all of them managed to deliver these workshops/ seminars successfully and they had an impact on the capacity building of the staff of the university, especially that of the International Cooperation Offices (ICOs).
