Oral exams - improved learning and cost-effectiveness (In Swedish)

Oral exams have a bad reputation regarding the time it takes for teachers to use the assessment method. Based on several years of experience, we will challenge this assumption and suggest ways to implement oral exams effectively. In particular, we consider the student learning perspective and cost-effectiveness from a teaching perspective.

Day 1: E To train for wellbeing. The best of two worlds: distance education and campus-based teaching (In Swedish)

In Swedish

Stress and a decline in mental health are issues that have been raised not only by students, but also by professional veterinarians. In the new curriculum for the veterinary program, we target these issues through a focus on professional approaches that include the student social environment and the future professional life. During the pandemic, we have had to implement a new module with this theme and want to share and discuss our thoughts, regarding both the content itself and the implementation from planned campus teaching to the digital space.
