- The amount of lecture slides and the book itself were too much. I studied almost all the book and I did my best to achieve the best score(I mean 5), But I think I was not successful.

Summarizing questions

13. What is your general impression of the course?

19 svarande

Poor»2 10%
Fair»1 5%
Adequate»6 31%
Good»9 47%
Excellent»1 5%

Genomsnitt: 3.31

- I think, if they try to improve our scores(in some way) it could be very helpful for us. (for example some extra points or something)» (Poor)
- The reason for the poor impression is due to the lectures being few, far apart, in some cases terrible slides (both design and content) and generally the content and things discussed in the didn"t connect well to the labs and the books. I would like to see the lectures containing more the application of the knowledge gained by reading the book. This could be done by solving problems on the white board or having "räknestugor" for the groups that don"t have labs during the afternoon.» (Poor)
- Focus could be clearer. The course goes into great detail in some areas only to be very basic in others for no obvious reasons.» (Adequate)
- The labs were good. Knowledge among the teachers very good, but not the ability to teach (RP was worst, SK best at teaching). The course focused on general understanding - we did not get help to organize the details, and the exam was focused on details.» (Adequate)
- The quality of the course depended on the person lecturing. I don"t doubt their expertise on the subject, but lecturing skills of some of the lecturers were inadequate. 150 slides in 90 minutes is a little bit much to handle.» (Adequate)
- The ranking adequate is due to both bad and good parts in the course. The practical classes were very good, informative and explained a lot. The lessons have very different quality. Some of the teachers where almost good and some really bad. I do think they know there subject but was not good at teaching. It was a very big difference between Swerea IVF and Chalmers and not to the favor of Swerea IVF. » (Adequate)
- However it was very annoying that the teachers would not give out any previous exams. As far as I know it is also against Chalmers rules...» (Good)
- Interesting content. Some good lectures, some bad, hard to say something general.» (Good)
- Labs made us understand more about ceramics, but poor IVF had too many students than they though so labgroups became quite big. A minus was that the summaries at labs were fastly showed and thoose were the best lessonmaterial.» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- lab sessions and practical work»
- the laboratory sessions are wonderful»
- The laboratory sessions»
- Laboratory sessions.»
- The labs, they were good»
- Laborations - they were very helpful (and my mom was happy about the mug). Free coffee - that keeps everyone in a good mood.»
- The lab course.»
- Labs - A good solution for getting more practical knowledge and using skills acquired during lectures/reading. »
- Laborations, introduction lecture, bioceramics and some other good lectures.»
- The labs were great and sould be extended.»
- The labs.»
- The labs»
- Labs Only 3 weeks with lessons »

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- no»
- the break between weeks can be avoided to maintain better continuity»
- Reduce number of lecturers. The order of the lectures should be looked at.»
- It would have been good to have a test exams to practice on and to see what was important. »
- RP cannot be a teacher any more. More emphasis on the important details. Give hand-outs of the lab introductions. Give a hint of the exam questions.»
- The lectures, see above.»
- Change the book, there must be a better one. Hand out practice questions or old exams.»
- If the slides are a summary of the book then just tell the students the relevant pages.»
- Some of the lectures.»
- Some information of how the exam will look like and contain. Mabye some exercise questions instead of an old exam so you get a hint what the exam questions is like.»
- It would be great to have a test-examine before real examine and less questions on the examine. Labmaterial "lessons" should be real lessons because it was good material to write down.»
- Please give out the information on the written big papers that was shown in the lab-classes. The papers was very good written and presented in a very nice design the best in the course. The classroom was terrible to sit in for three hours please change room. »

16. Additional comments

- no»
- The course seemed to lack a focus. Every lecture (or perhaps it was more conected to the lecturers) seemed to have a different idea about depth, focus and did not consider what had been covered earlier in the course. It felt more like seperate lectures than a course with connected lectures. If the course only have participants from Chalmers it should also be considered if the lectures and excercises should be held at Chalmers.»
- A very interessting course, but I don"t think the exam reflected the content of the lectures.»
- Maybe some recomendations for study guide questions in the book, not all of them covers the course.»
- No old exam or any test exam. Swerea IVF could not give us any old examns or make some testexams. In Chalmers we always got old exams and / or testexams. »
