Final round of the DTU Faculty Contest

Two weeks after the DTU Faculty Contest was launched; the final round took place on June 18. The contest was held for the entire DTU faculty mastering in different majors, deans and vice deans, in order to exchange ideas and their experiences teaching together.

Each major was assessed by the Academic Board, including members of the DTU Management Board, the DTU Provost and the HR Department. Faculty members selected a favorite lesson and presented it directly to the Academic Board. Academic questions were posed by Board members, so faculty members had to ensure that they mastered their subjects in order to provide convincing answers.
