PASCL Pilot Visit

In order to ensure the best possible quality of the PASCL process, the project consortium run two pilot visits in April 2015 meant to test and adjust the PASCL framework before proceeding with the set of PASCL peer assessments visits in 2016.

Two UNICA universities volunteered to host PASCL pilot visits and help us improve the Peer Assessment of Students-Centred Learning framework with their own experience:  the Nova University of Lisbon and the University of Warsaw.

The visits have been conducted according to the procedures comprised in the draft PASCL Guidelines.

The Peer Assessment team members have been selected from the PASCL Pool of Experts, trained in the First PASCL Training and accompanied by a member of the PASCL consortium.
