Collegiality as organizational culture – change and development and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

How do you change the university without damaging the academic culture? And what are the features of a good microcultural entity with a developmental agenda? According to Torgny Roxå, the key to defend the academic identity and values while developing the organisation through change, is collegiality and supporting the coordinative function of weak ties. In this keynote presentation of the KTH Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) 2017, Roxå shares his view on what SoTL is all about, as well as providing communicative solutions to be used for development of both individuals and organisations.
