This conference will explore the outcomes and insights that have emerged from the OfS-funded Degree Standards project, the aims of which were to design, pilot and deliver different approaches to the professional development of external examiners and recommend new approaches to the calibration of standards.
You will hear from key stakeholders of the project and have an opportunity to discuss proposals for developing external examiners. This event will be invaluable to senior leaders and programme leaders involved in the engaging and support of external examiners as well as current and aspiring external examiners.
The Degree Standards Project
The Degree Standards project , which is led by Advance HE and managed by the Office for Students on behalf of England and the devolved administrations in Northern Ireland and Wales, is exploring, across those three nations, sector-owned processes focusing on professional development for external examiners.
