Chairs of Viva

Good Practice Event for staff

Monday 29 January 2007

12pm-2pm in the Glamorgan Business Centre

The Research Office is organising this annual event for academic staff.  It will cover all aspects of acting as Independent Chair of Research Degree examinations.

The Chair must be independent of the student’s programme of study and have a clear understanding of the University’s regulations and procedures relating to research degrees and how we are operating in compliance with the QAA Code of Practice for research degree programmes.  The primary role of the Chair is to ensure that the assessment is rigorous, fair, reliable and consistent.

We would encourage those new to research, who are interested in research degree examining to attend.  Also experienced staff too, as it is a good practice event and we could share good (and bad) experiences.  It will be led by Professor Mike Wilson. 

If you would like to book a place, please contact Sally Davies, Research Office; or x2692
