Reviewers Required for BA (Hons) Dance & Performance at Bucks New University

1 x Dance academic and 1 x Dance professional/practitioner needed to review our re-validation documents for our BA (Hons) Dance and Performance. 

We are looking for two external reviewers (one academic, and one dance professional or practitioner) for the re-validation of our BA (Hons) Dance and Performance programme, at Bucks New University (High Wycombe).

The process does not require you to attend an event, as it is organised electronically.

You will be sent the revalidation documents by email, in the week commencing Monday 11th January 2016, and be required to write a report on these to reach us by Friday 22nd January 2016. You will need to be available to undertake this within these dates.

The fee for undertaking this is £150.

It would be useful if you have experience of higher education quality assurance processes.

Please email with a brief outline of why you think you are suitable for this role, and attach a CV to Dr Lois Drawmer,

A Message from DanceHE Chair about the new QAA Benchmark Statements

Dear Colleagues

The QAA are introducing digital literacy and employability as attributes to be identified during the renewal of Benchmark Statements.   During the recent update of Dance, Drama and Performance Statement these attributes were considered as part of the process. You can download a recent paper addressing these concerns by clicking here.

DanceHE would like to invite you to join a review of the activities in the delivery of Dance  programmes and will be in touch again soon to kick start activity.

Best Wishes
