Peer Review of Assessment Workshops

Higher Ed Services (HES) and the University of Tasmania (UTAS) are delighted to support the higher education sector through hosting Peer Review of Assessment Workshops across four States during March and April, 2017.

The workshops, which build on the national series held in 2016, will provide practical support mechanisms to the higher education sector for complying with the Higher Education Standards Framework which came into effect on 1 January this year. Based on feedback from last year’s events, these workshops will include more time for discussion and networking.

HES and UTAS are excited to announce that the workshops will include information about a peer review portal which has been developed to support the sector. It will provide a cost-effective, efficient, and just-in-time solution for HE institutions that will significantly reduce time and costs in administrative and academic work in quality reviews.
