NUCCAT event – Principles of Good Credit Practice

NUCCAT are now taking bookings for ‘Principles of Good Credit Practice’ seminar.  Details are below:

Date: Wednesday 26th March 2014

Time: 10.30am – 2.30pm

Venue: Aspect Court, Sheffield Hallam University
Facilitator: Dr Wayne Turnbull, Head of Academic Policy, Liverpool John Moores University.

Session outline: The UK Credit Forum surveyed UKHE practice in 2011. The resulting report highlighted much commonality of practice but also areas of inconsistency and variation. This session will explore these areas of variation, seek to understand the factors at play and propose ‘good practice guidance’ in the use of credit.

Of interest to: Anyone who is concerned that different practices have an impact upon the standards of awards, comparability of performances and student mobility/credit transfer. Those charged with crafting institutional academic regulation should do so in the knowledge of wider practice and sector-endorsed guidance.
