Below is a list of questions that you may use as a starting point for establishing a collaboration. You can also find inspiration in the filters under CASES.
In connection with challenge-based case collaboration, it is worth remembering:
- To agree on the case and your mutual expectations.
- To agree on the objective of the collaboration.
- To agree on the practical aspects of the collaboration and the process.
Objective of the Collaboration
Teaching: What are the learning goals of the course?
Practice: What does the case provider wish to get out of the collaboration? (Identification, solution, partial solutions?)
Structure of the Collaboration
- How open or concrete is the case or problem area in question? E.g. are the students free to develop or put a solution into perspective? Has the challenge been clearly defined by the case provider, or do the students have influence on the phrasing of the case?
- How many resources is the case provider expected to spend on the collaboration? Will the case provider merely visit the course once, or should he or she be available for fieldwork with the students?
- What is possible with regard to fieldwork? What will the students have access to? What are they allowed to do while visiting practice? Can they take photos, talk to citizens or patients or staff?
- Which professions are relevant to involve in the collaboration?

- Which language will be used? (Danish/English, technical clinical terminology?).
- Who will act as contact person during the collaboration? And how does the contact person prefer to be contacted?
- Has contact information been obtained? Has a time for contact been scheduled?
- When is the course held? Can fieldwork or visits by students be scheduled in this period?
Is It Necessary to Sign a Contract?
In special cases, it can be necessary to sign a collaboration contract. Especially if the collaboration involves material or knowledge that must be protected. Find more information under Knowlegde Protection. It may also be necessary to sign a non-disclosure agreement – e.g. if the students see or hear something during their visit or if the report they submit must be kept confidential.
