About the Project

All faculties at the University of Copenhagen continuously work towards developing, adapting and bettering their academic programmes.

The university had to collectively gather its forces to be able to meet the demands for development and innovation - from both outside and within the university walls - and to continue offering education of the highest quality.

"Education at its Best" made it possible to develop and try out new ideas, or to spread the good examples that already exist at the different faculties, institutes and departments.



The project "Education at its Best" added to the good educational foundation that already exists. UCPH sought to lift the quality of its academic programmes by asking questions such as:

  • How can UCPH become the best university at linking together research and education?
  • How can UCPH become even better at using knowledge across faculties?
  • How can UCPH create forms of teaching that really move forward?
  • How can UCPH create academic and social study environments that evolve the students' benefit and profit from education?

From Good Ideas to Great Projects

"Education at its Best" was a joint development process for all employees and students at the University of Copenhagen.

Two comprehensive development days - an innovation camp and a project camp - have been held to collect the best ideas for test projects. Read more about the Innovation and Project Camps.

The test projects have been developed by teams existing of both students and employees and were run throughout the rest of 2011. The purpose of these projects were to find solutions that would make the University of Copenhagen an even better place to study and work.
