Your route to certification as having completed Advance HE nationally-recognised External Examiner Training.
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
I’ve been an External Examiner for a few years now but feel the need to update myself as to current national expectations and policies and the findings of relevant research around the EE role. I don’t work as an External Examiner yet, but do have significant experience as an HE academic and would like to undertake an External Examiner role. I face some challenges within my role as an External Examiner, for example in navigating different expectations of my role and contribution. I would like the chance to discuss these challenges with others in the light of national policies and expectations.
Through this you will...
Explore issues such as • national standards and policies, • variability in standards • sources of variation • professional practice in the External Examiner role • social moderation and calibration. The workshop involves a two-part process of independent online preparation and one full day of face to face presentations, individual and small group activities and plenary discussions. The workshop involves reading and critical consideration of national policies and relevant research literature, explored in relation to the practicalities of the External Examiner role. To gain the associated certificate from Advance HE you must participate actively throughout the complete workshop and undertake a number of self-assessment activities.
