Report on the teaching provided at the Danish universities


Report no. 16/2011

The report is about the teaching, which is provided to the students by the Danish universities, and which is essential for the students' opportunities to gain the required knowledge, skills and competencies.

The objective of the study is to assess whether the universities provide the bachelor and master degree students with research-based teaching (measured in total number of hours taught and hours taught by academics), and whether the taximeter increase has had the desired effect on the quality of the teaching in humanities and social sciences.

The report answers the following questions:

  • What is the status of research-based teaching at the Danish universities and has the increased taximeter resulted in more and improved research-based teaching in humanities and social sciences?
  • Do the universities ensure that all programmes offer the students research-based teaching?
  • Does the Ministry of Education through accreditation ensure that all programmes provide research-based teaching?
