Edge Hill University provides induction, training and development opportunities for its external examiners and members of staff who aspire to be external examiners. This approach to induction and training for external examiners is informed by Advance HE’s Degree Standards Project, and is delivered by the Academic Quality and Development Unit in conjunction with our Centre for Learning and Teaching. We encourage both new and existing external examiners to attend the induction event as our aim is to provide the resources and knowledge required for external examiner duties to be effectively carried out. Our approach offers external examiners the opportunity to network with other academics, meet departments and discuss sector-wide issues.
Our induction typically takes place in January and external examiners receive an invite in the first semester. Please note, for 2020/2021 this will be held virtually.
