This webinar explores approaches to conducting oral examinations (over Zoom) as a potential solution to assessment of complex course learning outcomes. Oral examinations have a long established tradition in Swedish higher education and provide a rich basis for assessment. We will discuss some ways to approach oral examination in relation to specific examples of learning outcomes as a way to exemplify different types of assessment strategies. Issues of equity and accountability will also be discussed.
