- The comments I give here is for the course that is using the book Essential Cell Biology, NO OTHER COURSE! There should be a clear separation and description of what course the evaluation deals with. If this evaluation was about another course, like the Graham Kemp course, none of the answers given here are to be regarded!!» (At least 35 hours/week)

- regarding cell biology: There is no course page, where can I even find the goals?! It was impossible to get some answers about the level of knowledge needed» (I have not seen/read the goals)
- Here it would be nice with a link to the page where one can find the course goals! » (The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn)

- re bioinformatics: Grahams teaching skills seem excellent. The others were also above average. Tore needs to plan his lectures better though, he often spends too much time on trivial things which makes you sleepy then suddenly there comes hard stuff which pass through rapidly. re, cell biology: overall good performance, often a bit too cluttered powerpoint slides with mostly duplicates from the book, certainly they can be more creative..» (Large extent)

- regarding cell biology: During my 5 years of studies I"ve never been to such a badly organized course.» (Very badly)
- There is no real home page, just file links... I think a Google group would be sufficient for the course if the administrators finds other solutions to hard to deal with. Most of the handouts are very good as a summary of the different chapters.» (Rather badly)

- re. cell biology: markus tamas often don"t know the answers to questions asked on the lectures. Phds are more prone to reason about topics brought up. re.bioinformatics: especially Graham gave a good performance here» (Rather poor)

- This could be greatly improved by for example starting a google or yahoo group before the course. All organizing regarding students we had to do ourselves (collecting names and emailadresses for example). I have previous experience about using a wiki for a course which was very good, you should try it, they are free (as in software, not beer) and easy to install, they are even hosted for free.» (Very well)

- It depends on how much effort you are willing to invest, and how interested you are of course. I would answer good to the question if it was an option.» (Adequate)
- re cell biology: too much focus on work and too little on study, I wish I had more time to study on my own, but there"s the lab reports, the seminars, the project, that"s a lot for such a small course. Even though the project and the seminars were very interesting and learned me a lot, perhaps some priorization needs to be done. bioinformatics: some study questions or at least another previous exam would greatly help to reduce stress about not knowing how hard to work.» (Too high)

- Having a week without anything to do but study for the exam is the best. And also one week per exam, that is awesome, excellent planning guys.» (Adequate)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- research seminars, incredibly interesting»
- Course instructor»
- Ella, she"s an excellent teacher, I think she could take the whole course. Markus is alright.»
- The lectures and the excercises are good. Maybe just increases the level a bit.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Practical things, a schedule in MS word.doc in a webdirectory using webserver directoryindexing which constantly changes... come on.. why not a calendar file (.ics) published and news via feeds (RSS or atom), we are not in the early nineties anymore. Cellbio Phd response-time could be greatly improved, we have not recieved any feedbacks on any lab reports even now that the course is almost finished.»
- 2 small projects instead of only 1 project for 10 scores»
- I think the other girl teaching the course was not so in to it, maybe she doesn"t like to teach.»
- I think it would be great to visit the facilities at Sahlgrenska that are used to sequence genes and proteins. I think it is interessting to see where the data comes from before using it.»

16. Additional comments

- Because it is my first course abroad I have to face some difficulties. Such as understand the lecture, communicate with classmates. But I like this course»
- See you guys around!»
