Creating a favourable environment for learning

Welcome to an inspiring journey through the future of higher education! We invite teachers, staff, students, researchers and university management to this autumn's Storträffen Meet up that explores the core of everything we do - the student. With a focus on learning environments, vibrant campuses, innovative teaching methods, diverse forms of examination and the exciting opportunities and challenges offered by artificial intelligence, we have dialogue and co-creation about the future of students. Whether it's about including people with disabilities, promoting sustainable development and gender equality, contributing to the transformation of society and industry, or taking further steps into the world of digital education, the Storträffen Meet up is, as usual, designed to broaden your perspective on higher education, network and have a great time. So let's put the student at the centre and shape tomorrow's learning together."

THS report "A chair is not a study place"

Maja Rosén Head of Educational Influence and Eric Forsell Study Environment Manager have written the report "A chair is not a study place". The lack of available study places has a negative impact on students' mental health and performance. This relationship has been recognised by THS, especially during the pandemic. It was also confirmed in a student survey in spring 2023. The THS report "A chair is not a study place" on study places for self-study is available here Report - A chair is not a study place  (In Swedish)

They will talk about the report in table discussions in the Priority group Self-study places for students.

Storträff meet up & Priority groups

In order to strengthen KTH-wide cooperation, exchange of experience and continuous quality improvement of our programmes, the Storträff is arranged every semester. In addition, there are several thematic groups, so-called Priority groups. These arenas are open to everyone at KTH, teachers, students and staff alike.

The storträff meet up takes place once per term. It captures experiences and views on over a dozen themes. Those who are table leaders are responsible for summarizing and formulating how KTH could jointly move forward. The Priority groups gather around individual specific themes and meet during the year to discuss further ideas.
All KTH staff and students are also welcome.
