Pool of Experts
The madri+d Foundation for Knowledge has published the 2015 CALL INVITING APPLICATIONS BY EVALUATORS FOR EVALUATION AND ACCREDITATION PROCESSES.
In order to properly perform the Foundation’s quality evaluation tasks in Higher Education, the pool of external evaluators is enlarged and updated on a regular basis.
For the renewal of these accreditation processes it is necessary to count on experts with different profiles.
The Foundation is committed to quality and to improvement of Higher Education as a way to contribute to progress in our region. It also wishes to be a useful tool for universities and the general public.
For this reason a call for applicants has been launched to enable all interested parties with the required qualifications to send in their applications.
The evaluation activity takes place on a part-time basis when need arises. The candidate must ensure that it will be compatible with his/her other commitments.
The Foundation will provide the necessary information, means, and training to perform the evaluation activity.
Academic evaluators must:
- Be University teaching and research staff.
- Have a record of at least 5 years' teaching experience.
- Have a record of at least 6 years' research experience.
Professional experts must:
- Hold a university degree with national validity, or issued by recognised universities or Higher Education institutions.
- Have proven experience in the evaluation of qualifications, institutions, teachers, or quality assurance systems.
- Be enrolled in a bachelor's degree or a master's course.
In all cases, knowledge of, and experience in, activities related to quality in Higher Education will be an asset.
