If successful, you will be matched with an experienced Panellist to help you assess academic pedagogy and implementation. Participation is also a very well-regarded opportunity to build academic experience. Participating in accreditation panels involves a half or full day per panel currently operating via zoom. To take advantage of this opportunities you will need to be a PACFA member, and complete the EOI, selecting the option ‘joining a pool of members to assist on Accreditation Panels’.
