Specification of overall learning outcomes
In 2012 KTH-Sustainability developed the first proposal for the specification of the overall learning outcomes for the environment and sustainable development at KTH. The specified learning outcomes are a tool for program and course development and evaluation. During 2014 the goals for specified learning outcomes were evaluated, revised and presented to the Faculty Council. As of 2015-08-25 the Faculty Council decided that the revised goals should be considered as advisory at KTH. The new learning outcomes can be found here (only in Swedish)
