NADA has ambitions to give high quality education that prepares the students
for their coming work tasks. We have organized work to achieve high quality
education. In this work we often involve the students.
The educational group works with major questions concerning all undergraduate
education at Nada. This includes educational policy, course development, major
administrative questions etc. The group includes the head of NADA, representatives
for directors of studies, teachers and students. The group meets about once
a month during the semesters.
For each course a course analysis is made. It contains
facts about the course such as name, teacher, number of students, when
it was given, number of lectures, text books
figures showing the number and percentage of students who passed the different
parts of the course (examination, lab work etc.) as well as the course as
information on changes made since last time
a discussion on what worked out well and what did not work out well during
questions and answers from a student questionaire usually administered on
a discussions on what changes are necessary and desirable for next time
The teacher is responsible for the course analysis. It is presented on the
course page on the web.
The course analyses are then discussed in teacher groups.
NADA teachers are much engaged in pedagogic development at KTH, for the different
programs, in cooperation with other departments and within NADA. Pioneering
work has e.g. been done in changing the forms of examination from strictly written
exams in a lecture hall to other forms more suitable for the subject (lab work,
reports, seminars etc.).
Teacher of the year
Students at KTH and at the different programs select the teacher of the year.
Often NADA teachers have been selected. In 2002 Ninni Carlsund Levin was selected
the teacher of the year at KTH.
At NADA there are pedagogic prizes that are given out each year in order to
reward and point out good teaching work.
