- Power point would help to concentrate on what the professor try to convey rather than in copying what he is writting. With power point professor would have more time to make more useful comments about the lecture and will help students to take notes of it. However, the point of the professor is valid. Copying from the board will help students to keep "awaken".» (Rather well)
- I like a lot when the teacher is active and writes notes on the board, but may be a balance would be better because sometimes one focus a lot on copying instead of really thinking and learning about the new material, that is why a compendium would be great.» (Rather well)
- It works better for me, I learn more when the blackboard is used. » (Very well)
- It is very good when teachers write a lot on the black board. You write those things yourself and then you learn more. Powerpoint is not good, (only for showing pictures and graphs).» (Very well)
- Only OH for some small things that are hard to describe otherwise. Good. I hate OH!» (Very well)

- not a good time for me, went there during other hours...» (No)

23. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Laboratories, both of them. Trial Exam.»
- Home assignment before laboratory experiment»
- Handwrite notes on class»
- everything»
- tutorials and lectures as the way it was now. Also the labs was good for the understanding, and writing the report is much better than after.»
- jörgen and elisabet, and their tutorials and lectures. tha labs are interesting and fun. the trial examination.»
- Exercises in the tutorials were really good because they are actually real applications, I found them very interesting.»
- The teachers»
- trial exams»
- everything»
- The teachers if possible. »
- trial exam »

24. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Lab reports are really necessary, write now I did the lab and I did not look them anymore. If we had to do the report then I think what I did and what something means. Now it was simply 8 hours boring siting. I have no ideas what was the point of them.»
- I think that your grade should not depend only on one examination (this is not only for HV course but for all courses I have taken in the Master Program MPEPO until now). My suggestion is to create more elements to evaluate students, like assignments, weekly work (graded excersises). I don"t think that just one examination is a good way to determine the overall performance of the student.»
- longer trial exam»
- Have a chance to go to substation.»
- nothing»
- a time for questions one or two days before the exam, every course should have that»
- It may sound repetitive, but given the opportunity I would suggest the addition of the compendium.»
- More solutions and "exempeluppgifter"»
- actually the laboratory was good i will be happy if extra work shop like things are there or study visits so that we can be more practical»
- Nothing in particular. »

25. Additional comments

- Speed in Lectures and Tutorials are too slow to follow. At least I cannot follow so slow lessons, I get bored and sleepy.»
- Overall, the course organization is excellent.»
- There is one question still not solved for me about the real reason of not putting some electronic files for lectures as well as tutorials.By this policy taken by our lecturer,students will be forced to attend all the lectures and tutorials(even if they want to read at home) and this policy may be opposite the overall policy of equality in all cases and it will highlighted a one-directional policy used by lecturer. Also,students think that only this course is more important to attend and gradually they do carefully to take the next courses even they are more important to learn. The students who "really want" to learn every thing perfectly and get good marks as much as they can, they do it themselves even it is easy way to learn or not. I think that we have to feel free regardless of any limit. »
- both Jörgen and Elisabeth gets FIVE Paschen curve each :)»
- Less calculation, more deeply theory and more practical knowlege»
- Actally, i found this course too helpful and well organised and so much object-oriented. So, i think for the course the current structure is the best.»
- If we should have a study visit it would be better to have it in the beginning of the course. Then we have seen the, for example, diffrent parts of the substation, when we have a lecture about it. The last weeks it is so much to do and it is hard to motivate a study visit compare to sit and study on your own.»
- interesting course»
- Excellent course I like it very much, I want to thank both Elizabeth and Jörgen.»
- One of the few interesting courses I have had, pretty difficult calculation though»
- I suggest the lecture notes to be typed and put at hand out»
