We would need to establish clear guidelines to maintain the confidentiality of the student and the institution concerned. I am suggesting that a piece of work be forwarded to Homeopathy Online Editor Chris Kurz. He will remove any identifying names from the piece and forward it to me. I will then forward the work to two or three markers and compile the final article. If I need to edit the comments of markers, for reasons of space, I will post the edited version back to markers to ensure that, in so doing, I do not misrepresent their ideas.
Currently, my opinion is that those “marking” the piece be identified. As educators working in the field, we should be comfortable that our work is open to scrutiny. My sense is that through this transparency we can help to provide an element of public accountability. However, potential markers: Please feel free to disagree with me here. If confidentiality for all will result in a more honest and open discussion, we can adjust the ground rules I propose.
I suggest that one graded piece of work be submitted to each issue of Homeopathy Online. We will eventually attempt to represent the whole range of the homoeopathic curriculum: from first to final year; from basic materia medica to advanced case analysis.
A growing body of evidence about the realities of our educational practice will help to create a clearer sense of standards around the world. It will provide a valuable resource for educators and administrators working towards the moderation of standards of education and training in homoeopathy. As such we would be providing the European Council for Classical Homoeopathy (ECCH) and the International Council for Classical Homoeopathy (ICCH) with information to inform their work on the core curriculum, assessment, and the definition of appropriate standards for graduate professional homoeopaths.

3. Students willing to submit pieces of work, please contact Homeopathy Online Editor Chris Kurz. Please do not submit any work at the outset, but do note the subjects and levels for which you have material available. We will contact you once a subject has been chosen.
Prepaid call ?ards for international and local calls are popular, relevant and quite fresh variant. The most important plus of long distance call cards for worldwide calls is relatively low rates, thanks to which there’s a pretty serious savings.
