The UDTU Supervisor Programme

Do you supervise assistant professors, postdocs, or other faculty with teaching obligations and responsibilities? Would you like to offer colleagues supervision and sparring on their teaching practice and teaching portfolio? Do you want to reflect on the nature of good teaching – perhaps to develop your own teaching practice and teaching portfolio?

Come join the supervisor educational programme at DTU facilitated by educational consultants from DTU Learning Lab.

Target group
The supervisor programme is open for all faculties with responsibilities in supervising colleagues’ teaching.

Learning Objectives and desired learning outcome
After the completion of the supervisor programme at DTU, you will be able to:

  • Reflect on and discuss the nature of good teaching – and develop own teaching practice.
  • Observe and give feedback on colleagues teaching practice.
  • Make a teaching portfolio – and give sparring on colleagues teaching portfolios.

The programme takes two half days, some preliminary preparation, and some work in between the two face-to-face course days. During the face-to-face course days, you will discuss, present, and develop ideas and own practice.

Before the first course day, you must:

  • Read Andersen, H. L., & Bager, L. T. (2015). Collegial supervison. In L. Rienecker, P. S. Jørgensen, J. Dolin, & G. H. Ingerslev (Eds.), University Teaching and Learning (pp. 433-445). Frederiksberg: Samfundslitteratur. The text will be emailed to you, when you have signed up.
  • Check out the DTU Learning Lab website for a description of the teacher-training programme at DTU (UDTU). Find the description of UDTU here:
  • Watch a brief video on teaching portfolio (link will be emailed to you when you have signed up).
  • Take a quick look at two DTU Teaching portfolios. These will be emailed to you when you have signed up.
  • Observe a colleagues teaching. Any teaching will do – ask a colleague if you can sit in on a lecture or part of a lecture.

In total, this preparation will take you no more than one hour plus the time you spend sitting in on a colleague’s lecture.

Between course day 1 and course day 2, you must:

  • Arrange a session of collegial supervision where you have a pre-meeting, observe, and give feedback to a fellow colleague on their teaching practice.
  • Prepare a brief presentation (10 minutes with no more than 3 slides) with your findings and reflections of your collegial supervision.
  • Make a draft for your own teaching portfolio.

Course days
15 September and 5 October, 2022 - both days from 9am to 1pm at DTU, Lyngby Campus - building 402, room 009
