Investigates and evaluates on a scientific basis
The Digital Learning unit is responsible for the investigations and evaluations of the digital learning environment, as well as education and supervision of KTH's teachers. This means that we are conducting the activities to investigate what digital learning environment KTH should have, as well as evaluating whether the current environment meets the needs of teachers and students. The activities are conducted on a scientific basis, where investigations and evaluations are published as a journal or conference article.
Education and supervision assignment
Within the framework of the education and supervision of Digital Learning, we are responsible for the knowledge support on KTH's intranet regarding digital learning at KTH. We also run regular seminars, workshops and courses, as well as providing guidance to teachers via personal meetings or e-mail.
