Certified Course Reviewer

Course and Assessment Review

The Peer Review Portal (PRP) and the Higher Education Leadership Institute (HELI) are pleased to  offer a professional development short course in Course and Assessment Review leading to certification as a course reviewer by HELI and recognised by the PRP.

This online course has been developed specifically for participants who undertake course reviews for the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), universities and independent higher education providers.

While we’ve been working on this for a while, TEQSA’s advice on the engagement of independent experts by providers make this doubly relevant.

This course will help participants develop best practice in course and assessment review methodologies.

Course Learning Outcomes

Over five weeks, participants are guided through five modules created to help develop best practice in Course and Assessment Review, aiming to improve course quality and regulatory outcomes. Each week consists of readings, content and an online asynchronous Q&A. There are two one-hour Zoom clinics led by the Course Facilitator, one each in weeks three and five. The Course is delivered through HELI’s learning management system.

On completing the course participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate the alignment of assessments and activities with subject/unit learning outcomes.
  • Critically assess the design of similar courses or subjects/units.
  • Evaluate the quality of a course or subject/unit design.
  • Recommend evidence-based improvements to a course or subject/unit design
