Thank you so much for letting me know this interesting outcome.
I have already had some interest expressed in doing an external examining SEDA Special.  I will have a chat to Stephen.

Dear Ruth,  Stephen and others,

The Papers Committee met yesterday and was keen on the idea of linking Specials and Papers to PDF awards. When the new catalogue is out we'll get copies over to the PDF Committee which would help you see which of the current publications might support which of the PDF awards and where gaps exist. 

In the immediate term, a  proposal for a Special or Paper around external examining to accompany the PDF course would be great to receive and is not a topic within the current catalogue.  

Finally, just a reminder to all on the JISCMAIL list  that the Papers Committee welcomes proposals for publication throughout the year. The  proforma for proposals is on the SEDA website as is  the current catalogue of Specials and Papers.  You're also welcome to contact members of the Committee to discuss ideas before developing a proposal (again, we're up on the website).

Periodically, the Papers Committee solicits for editors or authors on a topic it would like to see within the portfolio of publications.  A  couple of topic areas were identified at the meeting yesterday and calls will be circulated in the next couple of weeks to this list.
 
All best wishes,

Jac Potter

What a really good idea.  It could also spark some more writing around SEDA Specials. In fact, one thing we could do, Stephen would be for you and I to do an External examining one on the back of your award. We could invite case studies...  We have some for internationalisation and sustainability?
Could we put something together around researching and supporting new researchers.....  I am sure there is expertise across the community Ruth

Lynette and Jenny

Don't know if anyone considered this before, but would it be worth considering which SEDA Specials and Papers are relevant to each PDF award, and adding them to the named award web pages, as appropriate? E.g. "Have you considered SEDA Paper XXXX for this programme?"

Might sell a few..

Subject: Diagnostic assessment for incoming students

Dear colleagues,

We are exploring options for introducing large scale diagnostic assessment of incoming undergraduate students. Whilst this occurs in some curriculum/programme areas, we do not currently offer or require all students a diagnostic assessment to ascertain whether they have the skills for successful study at University.

I would be interested to hear about similar schemes in other institutions as well as your views on the merits of introducing this form of assessment.

As a starter, some of the questions we have been considering include:
1) Should a diagnostic assessment be undertaken by all students or only those in particular curriculum areas?
2) Would it be appropriate for all students to take the same assessment or would this need to be tailored to the different requirements of different curriculum areas?
3) Would the test be optional or compulsory and if compulsory, how would we ensure all students had completed it?
4) Would it be viewed as a positive undertaking by potential students or something that might put them off?
5) When would it be undertaken, pre-arrival, on-arrival or within a few weeks of joining the university?
6) What expectations would be set for students who fell below a certain level? would they be required to undertake some development activity?
7) Would these students be eligible for additional support, what form would this take and who would provide it?


Regards and thanks in advance for your input

Phil
