Peer review is the

responsibility of the provider not the

regulator.

We can’t meet standards without peer review

. It is a

very important part of the standards… We have to consider the

importance of peer review [ like the work of Kerri-Lee Krause

and Mark Freeman]…

If I go to the criteria on

Learning Outcomes 1.5.1

: The

expected learning outcomes are specified...

by informed by

national and/or international comparators.

I would be

expecting there would be periodic review by external people

that there is a standard. There are

three projects in this area

(UK and Denmark have the external examiners system).

National Peer Review

Network

Peer review is core to assuring standards.

External peer review of assessment is

gaining momentum in the Australian higher

education sector. The aims of this national

Peer Review Network (PRN) are to:

– Provide a forum for sharing and

disseminating good practice in external

peer review of assessment across

different

– Identify key academics experienced in

external peer review of assessment

– Provide professional learning opportunities

for academics and benchmarking partners
