Goals and goal fulfilment

The course syllabus states the course goals in terms of learning outcomes, i.e., knowledge, skills and attitudes to be acquired by the student during the course.

The goals are difficult to understand»0 0%
The goals give some guidance, but could be clearer»5 50%
The goals clearly describe what I am supposed to learn»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2

4. Are the goals reasonable considering your background and the number of credits?

Answer this this question and the succeeding one, only if you do know the course goals.

Yes, the goals seem reasonable»4 80%
No, the goals are set too high»1 20%

- It is very difficul to learn enough about superfluidity and bosons in this short period of time. It maybe would be better to have it as a separate course. » (Yes, the goals seem reasonable)

5. Did the examination assess whether you have reached the goals?

- I would prefer a take-home exam if we"d gotten them. As it was only Gabriele gave us a proper home exam.» (Prefer take-home exam)
- I think it forces me to learn a bit more.» (Prefer take-home exam)
- Better with take-home exam, BUT Stellans take-home exams were the worst I"ve ever seen. They were almost more sloppy and full of small/big errors than his lectures. Honestly what does he expect to get back from the students when almost no sentence/equation is correct?!! I felt that I was wasting my time, didn"t learn stuff, some of the problems didn"t even connect to his lectures, at least not enough for me, and I lost all my respect. » (Prefer take-home exam)

7. Having three different lecturers was:

- It uses to be quite difficult to follow the last lectures because they require that you really have grasped everything that has been teached erlier in the course. With three different subjects that somewhat started of from the begining each time this was not the case in this course. However it might have been a bit harder to really understand the subjects in depth because you don"t spend as much time in each subject.» (?)
- It seems resonable since the goal is to teach three quite different topics.» (Better than having one)
- It was a big difference in quality. Gabrielle was absolutely fantastic I think. Bernhard was great, he was giving the impression that he really wanted to teach, and he had a nice touch of humour. Stellan was not good. Can he please be more correct! I got a small headache every lecture because he never did anything right. You get frustated, lost, confused and then after few minutes you fall a sleep instead. Maybe this is a bit too critical but also I get the feeling that he never starts and ends a normal sentence, but instead he gets into other things back and forth until I get totally confused, this is very tiresome for listeners after a while.» (Better than having one)

8. To what extent has the teaching been of help for your learning?

Genomsnitt: 3.1

- Gabriele"s teaching helped me most. Bernhard next and Stellan"s least of all.» (Large extent)
- Without a book one had to rely on the lectures, but this isn"t bad in any way. In Gabriele"s and Bernhard"s part we had Sakurai, but Stellan"s part had no textbook for reasons he explained.» (Great extent)

9. To what extent has the course literature and other material been of help for your learning?

- Large parts of the course had no proper course literature. Which is bad, because that"s my preferred way to learn things. Lack of proper literature actually drove me to despair at one point, making me wonder if I should just skip this course altogether.» (Small extent)
- Some parts of the course suffered from lack of literature covering the subject.» (Some extent)
- I had to look up alot of things on the web. Learning to do this is acctually important to but to get the best understanding of the physics it would be nice to have some single source of information where things are rigourously defined and derived.» (Some extent)
- Since Gabriele"s part was based on Sakurai, Sakurai helped a lot. Bernhard had really good notes and also his lectures were easy to take notes from. Stellans part was hard to follow, hard to find the right material to read and hard to understand his notes, so many errors everywhere so you get totally confused.» (Some extent)

10. How well did the course administration, web page, handouts etc work?

- It wasn"t very well organized, but there were no problems.» (Rather well)

- Stellan"s part gives me the impression "poor", therefore the general impression is much lower than it could be otherwise.» (Adequate)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Gabriele"s parts of the course, reasonable goals and very good lectures.»
- Very nice lectures from all the teachers!»
- Gabriele, Stellan and Bernhard are three great great lecturers.»
- No final written exam, would be tricky with the three part layout.»
- Gabriele and Bernhard and caustics :)»
- The content of the course is definitely to be preserved for the next year. »

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The examination in Stellan"s part.»
- To know the dates for the homework problems when the course starts. »
- The workload has been high, higher than expected.»
- A properly updated homepage. Need not be pretty, just updated.»
- Stellans part.»
- Teachers should spend more time on different subjects, since they are complex. There should also be Problem Sessions.»

18. Additional comments

- A text book or a single compilation of the material covered that explains everything from the bottom up would be nice. Sometimes the hand-ins was more about algebraic manipulations rather than real physical insight.»
