We want to support you as well as we can in making your course a success, and to us, that means being active partners in every course we host. This involvement can take many shapes such as lab and workshop usage, guest lectures and teaching modules, mentoring, or cases. If you do not plan to involve us at all, DTU Skylab is probably not the right teaching venue for you. 

To make sure our expectations match from the very beginning, we have written up a course commitment contract. The contract outlines what you can expect from us and what we expect from you during your course. Hosting your course with us requires you to read and accept the contract. Find it here.
