Supervision of larger projects at DTU

Supervision of larger projects is an essential part of the teaching activities at DTU, and accordingly, quite an effort is put into supervision. The aim of this course is to strengthen the supervision of larger projects as a teaching activity at DTU and provide some tools to make the supervision more effective.

In this course, supervision will be treated within the context of teaching and learning in higher education and we will discuss roles, methods and quality in supervision.
