bookposted on 2023-06-05, 02:10 authored by Stephen DobsonStephen Dobson
Argues that the viva in higher education empowers examiner and student alike; both gain greater self-understanding. Discusses why the viva remains globally important and yet we know so little about it. Examines the history and current global practice of the viva, or oral as it is sometimes known. Advocates the pivotal role played by examiner judgments. Showcases and applies validity concerns to the viva in such a manner that critical engagement with current validity debates becomes possible?
