Students at KTH Royal Institute of Technology possess insufficient knowledge of Swedish technical terms. In more than 40 per cent of KTH’s courses, technical terms are taught only in English. Now the Language Committee at KTH is setting in motion a campaign to strengthen bilingualism in the degree programmes.
Is it now time to scrap the traditional lecture altogether?
Peer instruction, teaching sessions and project-based courses are crowding out lectures as more motivating and participatory forms of learning. Nevertheless, Jan Scheffel is beating the drum for alternative lectures.
How can KTH create a work environment that provides the best possible conditions for employees to feel good, grow and develop? A good assessment tool for this is the survey about work environment and working conditions, which will soon be sent out to KTH employees.
