Following last weeks article in Campi, KTH PhD Chapter Chairman Erik Widman and Lund University PhD Chairman Jan Nylund co-authored an article for Svenska Dagbladet about how high expectations can improve education quality at Swedish universities in an effort to include higher education in the recent national debate about education quality in Sweden.
The article emphasizes that high expectations, in addition to strong funding and excellent resources, is necessary to achieve world class results in both university education and research. The article also calls for cultural change regarding our attitudes to education, stating that we must focus on long-term constructive solutions and accountability rather than blaming political parties or lack of resources for poor educational results.
How do you think Swedish universities can improve education quality? What is necessary to take Swedish education to the next level? How can you contribute to make your university better? We encourage you to share the article and discuss it with your peers and professors.
