Teaching Lab

Welcome to the Teaching Lab. Do you have questions about this course? Please be aware that e-mail response time is delayed - up to 5-7 working days. Fortunately, most of the information you need is here on this page, so please read everything thoroughly before contacting us.

What is Teaching Lab?


Teaching Lab is our introduction to Teaching & Learning in Engineering Education. During the course you will design and deliver a short teaching session, and you will give and receive feedback.
Our active learning approach means that you will work actively most of the time - in groups, and on your own.
We will give a couple of short talks, but there will be no actual lectures. 

Who is the course for?

Assistant/associate professors, (senior) researchers, and post docs

The course is a prerequisite for the UDTU-programme and must be completed before the first day of UDTU.
If you have completed an equivalent course in the past, you may be exempt.
You can read more about UDTU here

PhD students


Teaching Lab is no longer mandatory for PhD-students. Do you still want to take the course?
Please read this information thoroughly



We expect you to prepare for the course.
You will apply what you read in your individual and group work, so you must prepare and take notes with that in mind.
You will receive information about what to prepare approximately a week before the start of the course.


: The course is intensive, and you need to make sure to not have any other meetings, teaching obligations, etc. during the course.
In order to pass the course participants must be present at least 90% of the time (Allowed absence: 2,4 hrs = 2 hrs 24 mins).
We keep attendance continuously during the course. If there is a unexpected emergency, and you must leave, please let us know.



Teaching Lab is four days + preparation (2,5 ECTS):

  • Day 1+2: 09:00-16:00
  • Day 3+4: 09:00-14:00

Course fee & payment


The course costs 5.500 Dkr - also for PhD-students.
When you register you must enter project number, task number - and approver. The relevant administrator in your department should be able to inform you about these - or perhaps your Head of Section. Who can help you, depends on how  things are organised locally - so you may have to ask around.

Cancellation + cancellation fee

If you have to cancel your participation in the course, you must let us know earlier than 14 days in advance - otherwise you must pay the full fee.

If you wish to cancel, please contact course coordinator Rikke Byrsting Jakobsen, ribyr@dtu.dk
