Teaching facilitation

How to get teaching activities

CBS has a quite complex matrix structure. At CBS, the course coordinators and the director of each study programme decides which kind of teaching is available to you.

It is possible for you to teach at all CBS programmes – not only the ones MSC is involved in – as long as you prioritize your teaching activities at MSC's courses and you don’t exceed the allowed 700 working hours. On the CBS web you can find all study programmes at CBS and in the CBS course catalogue you can find all mandatory courses and electives offered at CBS.

Academic development

Teaching & Learning

Every professional teacher needs to continuously develop his/ her competences to keep up with new pedagogical challenges and opportunities in order to support the learning of students as well as his/ her own teaching career.
Teaching & Learning offers both formal qualifications as well as informal engagement in teaching and learning at CBS for teachers at every stage of their career.

On the CBS Teach site Teaching & Learning provides pedagogical inspiration and teaching resources. Here you can, for example:

  • Explore a variety of teaching methods and tools
  • Get inspiration from best practices in education
  • Learn about online teaching
  • Book pedagogical courses, clickers and support for video recordings
  • Get in touch with the people in Teaching & Learning 

Mandatory 'Learning to Teach' course
CBS offers the course “Grundlæggende universitetspædagogik” to all external teachers (The English version is called 'Learning to teach'). The course is mandatory and you get paid for participating (15 hours). At MSC we strongly recommend that you attend the course.

Exams at CBS take place in many different ways and a number of things must be considered in connection with exams. Therefore, it is very important that you always consult the study programme or the course coordinator when conducting or being involved with exams at CBS.

The examination

The assessment of the student is based on the course’s goals and learning objectives which can be found in the course description. Always make sure to have it during the examination.

At CBS we have 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, which considers:

  • The extend of fulfilling the learning objectives
  • The number and the essence of the weaknesses

All grading is individual in Denmark. Even if a project and/or exam is done in a group the grade will be given for the individual performance.

At CBS, grades do not include homework performance, participation in class, or similar (however, it is possible to require passing of take-home assignments before being allowed to participate in the final exam). Only the exam paper and/or the performance in the examination room is included in the assessment.


Shared office

If you need an office to prepare your teaching, you are welcome to use our shared office at Dalgas Have 15, 2V.080. However, please notice that it only has 16 work stations.

For further information and to get a keycard, please contact Maja Dueholm.


Important websites

Canvas is the electronic teaching platform at CBS. Use the same login and password as for your CBS mail. You can upload teaching-related information such as semester plans, course plans and syllabi. Please follow this link to find video guides and further information about Canvas.

Canvas is divided into courses. If you do not have access to your courses in Canvas, please contact the relevant course administrator to get access.
You can check the timetable of each course you teach at, by doing the following:
(For English version just click on “Click Here For English Timetables” at the bottom of the page.)

  • Choose “course timetable” (in the left-hand side of the screen)
  • In the “Filter” box, write some of the course name or course code and click “view timetable”.
  • If several possibilities come up, choose the right one and click “view timetable”

We recommend that you choose to view only the first week of the schedule (the week in which the course starts) and then look through all the weeks by clicking “next week” in the lower right corner of the screen.
Instead of checking the timetables of each class you teach, you can compile all your courses (with time and room information) in the CBS Calendar.

Just do the following:

  • Access CBS Calendar via this link.
  • Log in with your CBS-login
  • Click on the little tool icon after “Courses” in the left side of the screen. 
  • Find the courses you teach (search by either course code or title) and close the box.
