Abstract: In this paper, we describe and discuss three different courses in which Coloured Petri Nets (CPN) is used: (1) an introductory course on distributed systems and network protocols; (2) an advanced course on CPN; (3) a course on industrial application of CPN. Courses (1) and (2) are taught at the Department of Computer Science, University of Aarhus and course (3) is given for professional software engineers. For each course, we briefly present contents, format, and role of CPN. Then we describe a number of lessons learned from teaching the three courses. We have two aims in mind: In the first place, we want to share our specific experiences with other teachers. Secondly, we want to contribute to a more general discussion and exchange of ideas on Petri nets and education.
