The University of West London is delivering the Advance HE accredited Professional Development Course for External Examiners, aimed at both people who are already External Examiners and those who aspire to become EEs. The blended learning approach includes initial online work, followed by a one-day workshop. The focus is on the role of the External Examiner as Guardian of National Standards, maintainer of Academic Standards, process checker and critical friend. It explores the challenges of what we mean by standards and the causes of variability in outcomes. Even if you are not an external, the workshop will help you understand more about how assessment practices should be influenced by national and disciplinary standards, The second part of the course lasts the duration of a day and there are limited places only, so book now through this link.
