The assistant professor is supervised by two supervisors throughout the entire process: one departmental supervisor and one non-departmental supervisor. Their main focuses are:
The field-specific teaching traditions and the relation between the research base and teaching activities. Upon enrolment in the program, the assistant professor chooses a departmental supervisor in collaboration with the Head of Department.
The general didactical understanding, the practical implementation of this understanding and its impact on student learning processes. Upon enrolment in the programme, the non-departmental supervisor is assigned by teaching and learning.
Please note that the APP program is a requirement to apply for an associate professorship at CBS. Please also note, that all APP tasks should ideally be completed within two years and that you are automatically unenrolled from the APP program when you are no longer employed as assistant professor at CBS. If it is deemed realistic that you can finalize the APP shortly after your employment terminates, Teaching & Learning can grant a one-year extension of your APP enrollment.
