Choosing your online activities

Codex for Responsible Online Teaching

The guidelines presented in the following codex is to establish a structure for professors and students to reach a shared understanding of proper online behavior. The codex can be used as a starting point for talking to your students about online teaching behavior and to align expectations before or during your online classes – you are also welcome to upload the document to your Canvas course.

Technical equipment

It’s a good idea to use an external camera and microphone/headset if possible. You can even use the headphones for your regular mobile phone.

If you don’t have any microphones or cameras, you can borrow one from your department or Teaching & Learning. Please contact the relevant contact person from your department or write to tl@cbs.dk to make a request for borrowing equipment from Teaching & Learning. Please state what kind of equipment you need (camera, microphone, headset, etc.). Please notice that there is no guarantee that we have the equipment in stock (because of the long delivery times) – so please notify us as soon as you know you will need the equipment.

You can find some quick guides on how to use the external equipment here.

Toolbox - tools and tips for inspiration

In order to support your blended and online teaching, we have gathered material, tips, and ideas that you can implement directly into your own teaching. This includes ideas for social activities, breakout rooms assignments, how to help your students immerse in the course content or facilitate group work.

Find the toolbox folder HERE.

If you have questions or want to add something from your own teaching, you are more than welcome to contact Ida Marie Malmkjær at imm.tl@cbs.dk.
