 The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is a method or concept for developing education and learning in higher education based on research, proven experience and collegiality. KTH's own SoTL conference is held every second year. 


Material for Development Work

This section provides with a continuously developed selection of guides, recommendations and examples that aims to support education development. At the moment, great emphasis is placed on rating criteria as well as an advanced systematic work with course evaluations and course analyzes (SCA), as both of these areas have recently changed guidelines. Please contact the web page responsible when you have questions or if you would like to add new material!
