The UEA is looking to appoint a new External Assessor for our Undergraduate Translation and Interpreting modules. These are a range of modules that support all of our Language and Communication degrees and are open to all languages but particularly those students studying French, Spanish, and Japanese. The External Assessor does not need to specialise in any of these languages but does need to be an expert in Translation and Interpreting.
The External Assessor is expected to comment on the modules they assess in the following areas:
o Academic standards of awards
o Assessment design
o Module design and content
o Student achievement
o Procedural matters relating to the conduct of assessment
The role would be for a 3 year period (with the option to extend for a fourth year) and is paid at the rate of £165 per year. The role is not an External Examiner role and does not involve attending the end of year exam board. It is expected that the role holder will complete all duties and reviews of modules/assessments using Blackboard. The successful candidate must have an affiliation with a UK university. The role will commence in September 2019.
