Publication of External Examiner Report 2015-16

16 March 2017

We are pleased to note that the external examiner for our Common Awards (Durham University) programmes has highlighted a number of areas of good practice in his most recent report. He notes, for example, that “programme curricula remain current, relevant and valid” and that “I continue to see much excellent practice in respect of feedback“. In particular, we are grateful for the following commendation:     

Many Queen’s modules are commendable for the strength of their curricular design. I was impressed by the structure of TMM2087 OT Text Study – Psalms, TMM2257 Christianity and Interfaith Engagement and TMM2501 – Christian Ritual, Theology & Pastoral Care. It was good to see the inclusion of black, feminist and liberationist perspectives in TMM2121 Topics in Christian Doctrine. Most impressive was the concept and design of Theologies in Global Perspective, which looks really excellent, both the breadth and the focus on Latin America, Africa & migration. Queen’s are probably ahead of many UK TRS depts. as well as TEIs in offering such provision. At this point the research expertise of certain staff members seems to make an obvious contribution to enhancing the curriculum.
