Are you interested in reviewing topics offered at other universities? Would you like to know how topics like yours are being taught and assessed elsewhere? Why not become an Academic Calibrator!
Academic Calibration is an external peer review process which sees selected higher education topics peer reviewed to compare outcomes and grades, and hopefully maintain and improve academic standards and promote discussion on good practice in learning and teaching across the IRU*. It offers an opportunity to gain insights into assessment practices in a positive and collegial way, and the potential to form disciplinary networks across the IRU.
Becoming a calibrator is notable as requests for nominations go to all IRU institutions, and you are selected based on your experience in the discipline and your well-developed sense of academic standards.
Not only will your review provide valuable feedback to the topic coordinator, but you may pick up some tips on how to improve your own topic along the way.
There are a number of topics currently seeking calibrators from Charles Darwin University, Griffith University, Murdoch University and Western Sydney University.
Contact Anna Smith, Academic Calibration Coordinator today for more information on becoming an Academic Calibrator in 2019.
