Teaching Activities and Academic Development

Teaching Activities
At CBS, it is the course administrators and course directors of each study programme, who decides which kind of teaching is available to you. It is possible to teach in other programmes, than the ones DIGI is responsible for. However, please make sure to prioritize your teaching activities at DIGI, and not to exceed the limit of the allowed 500 working hours.

Please contact the course administrator/director for further information on how to get teaching activities. 

Academic Development
It is expected that every professional teacher needs to continuously develop his/her competencies to keep up with new pedagogiocal challenges and opportunities in order to support the learning of students as well as his/her own teaching career.

CBS Teaching and Learning offers courses, workshops, various tools, etc. to support improvement of academic teaching and activation of students. Teaching and Learning offers both formal qualifications as well as informal engagement in teaching and learning for teachers at every step of their career. 

Please note that it is the ambition of CBS that by 2023, the majority of courses at CBS shall be taught in a blended way. Meaning that Blended Learning (combination of classroom, online, and technology-driven teaching) is going to be the normal way of teaching at CBS.

Exams and Grading

The Examination
At CBS. we have a number of different examination forms and rules. The assessment of a student is based on the course's learning objectives. Make sure to always bring the learning objectives to every examination. The learning objectives for each course can be found in the course catalog.

CBS has the following examination forms:

  • Oral Exams
  • Synopsis
  • Mini Project
  • Written Exams
  • Take-home Exams
  • Case Exams
  • Oral Defense (Thesis)

The assessment is based on an overall evaluation of the student's performance. The evaluation must consider: The extend of fulfilling the learning objectives, and the number and the essence of the weaknesses.

At CBS, all exams are graded individually. This includes group projects and group exams, meaning that each student will be graded for their individual performance. 

Please note, at CBS grades do not include class participation, homework performance, and similar. However, it is possible to require student's to pass a take-home assignment prior to allowing the student to participate in the exam. Nonetheless, the grading must only be an assessment of the actual exam performance (oral or written).
