Teachers’ and students’ experiences of the spring semester’s online teaching are described in a comprehensive new CBS survey. Mainly the quality of the teaching and students’ motivation has been rated lower. “I’m not surprised,” says CBS’ Associate Dean for Technology-Enhanced Learning, who hopes that the knowledge can improve the quality of future online teaching.
Becoming accustomed to all the dos and don’ts in the academic world is a steep learning curve. Therefore, CBS researchers have written 17 editorials with guides to everything from conducting cross-disciplinary research to turning research into teaching. The authors hope to change how research is carried out in future.
For years, the diploma program (HD) has been losing applicants. But this year, the number of new students has increased by nearly 20% compared to 2019. The reason, according to the Associate Dean of the HD Program, Peter Lotz, is a revised program that meets the demands of a modern business community as well as the consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. And in the wake of the new increase, the plan is to introduce a winter-intake.
The new CBS strategy not only comes with a wish to transform CBS and society through research and education. It also aims to curb student stress levels through self-reflection, explains the Dean of Education, who would personally have liked a little more time for self-reflection when he was a student.
Hey Planet has turned the ick-factor of eating insects into its X-factor. The CBS alumnus has been seeking to break down the stigmatization of insects since the conception of the start-up comprising of two people, was conceived - no easy feat. Yet, despite of these odds, they have established themselves as pioneers in providing sustainable food for the Danish market – with 35 million insects sold since last year alone.
The employee representatives of the General Consultation Committee (HSU) have unanimously sent a letter to the President of CBS harshly criticizing the decision to include the final discussion of the strategy as a confidential item on the agenda at the board meeting held on June 29. “It is not acceptable management from the President and the Chair,” the letter states. The President of CBS does not wish to comment on the criticism before meeting with the HSU.
