About this event

In this webinar, Professor Paul Giller will present the key highlights and findings of his report commissioned by QQI and endorsed by the National Academic Integrity Network, titled E-proctoring in theory and practice: a review. Remote e-proctoring was an established practice in some specific contexts prior to the COVID pandemic; however, with the onset of the pandemic and the ensuing need to find alternative assessment procedures, e-proctoring became a very topical issue and one which has been discussed, trialled and implemented in many contexts both nationally and internationally in an attempt to provide a possible solution to the issue of exam proctoring for online assessment. Professor Giller’s report, reviewing the literature, identifying the various approaches taken and highlighting the advantages and constraints inherent to e-proctoring may act as a welcome advisory resource for policy-makers, education developers and others in institutions in Ireland. Professor Giller also describes both some successful and less successful case studies and analyses some possible reasons for these outcomes. This report is pending online publication (mid-Nov., 2021) by QQI, and will be made available prior to the webinar.
