- Starting times varied enormously.I dont know how many hours I spent waiting to get a lecture started, throughout these 12 days. Technical issues where not a rare sight. At times, our lectures where disturbed by St.Lucas" students, since the lecture room was shared with them. could we not be offered a more private room?» (Very bad)
- Information flow between students and tutors is not good at all. The Blog is hardly as useful at is it suppose to be. Wordpress blogs are not good with large files » (Rather bad)
- We were not informed of the exact dates for the workshop till the very last week, thus making the travel arrangements very difficult. Also, I felt that the sessions rarely started on time.» (Rather bad)
- The only well informed person seemed to be Thomas. When he was not there there were misleading informations. I was rather stressed there and on first days students did not know what to do.» (Rather bad)
- it was bad organization» (Rather bad)
- There was a bad organisation of time. It was hard to follow the timetable (eg. when we were supposed to make models and there was no materials). Also lectures - they were always later than in timetable what disable us to work on projects before noon.» (Rather bad)
- many times we didn"t know what we have to do, same informacion was told to us many times and other that we needed wasn"t.we did"t have wifi in hostel so not everytime we could use the blog to get the informacion. but while we started to work it was ok» (Neither bad nor well)
- Things were not always explained properly, for example we were never told what exactly is a Black Box or shown examples, it would be much better if we were properly explained things.» (Neither bad nor well)
- at first day i had no idea what to do. i felt confused. Sometimes we spent lot of time waiting for lecture and we do nothing just waiting.» (Neither bad nor well)
- Timing was bad.» (Neither bad nor well)
- why do you create schedule, if we dont follow it then?» (Neither bad nor well)
- The lectures didn"t start at time in the morning.» (Rather well)
- The delay due to technic has decreased my evaluation» (Rather well)
- Everytime we needed something, you could ask somebody.» (Rather well)
- Changes in the schedule were not pleasant,especially as for the Sunday trips.» (Rather well)
- place - all ok, very very good school support (kindness of school stuff, good working space, enough time that we could spend there, also in the evening).Time schedule: i´,d prefer if the lectures could have a break (e.g. 60min lecture, than 10min break, than 60 min lecture- sometimes it was really very much informations together and after ca 90 minutes my mind was already so tired, that i couldn´,t concentrate on the lecture as i would like to.. the lectures were mostly very interesting, so i was sad that i probably missed some interesting informations in the ends of some lectures)» (Rather well)
- Everything was ok but sint-lucas needs more outlets and better print facillities... » (Rather well)
- I liked the division between lectures and practical hours.» (Rather well)
- Good organization but it would be beter if they check attendance.» (Rather well)
- Everything was well organized, but some appointments were a half an houre over time, but this is due to the behaviour of the overall student participating in DID III. We have to admit that some students came late...» (Rather well)
- It wos very well organized» (Very well)
- worshop was organized very well, i could know schedule in advance, and the events like welcome evening and international dinner, were great ideas, because we could meet and talk to each other, not only about the school. » (Very well)
- Although morniong were a bit "slower", then I had expected» (Very well)
- nothing to complain! :)» (Very well)
- Despite of some delays. » (Very well)
- For me as a regular student, everything was well organized. Maybe because it is my natural environment.» (Very well)
- There was no problem in organisation. I was well informed about the workshop and all people were pleasant.» (Very well)

- There was little to no help on the POE which resulted in voicless movies and projected Braille - obviously not a best decision. The importance of the task was not clearly pointed out, which results in students concentrating on the wrong parts of the project» (Rather bad)
- we did not know what to do. » (Rather bad)
- At the beginning we weren"t sure what we are going to do. The tasks became clearer after some time as we started to work on them.» (Rather bad)
- The information about what will be the final presentation was rather confusing, we get known it step by step during the workshop and i think it´,d be better to know it more in advance. And it could be also posted on the blok od DID3. But generally, i think finally we got information enough precised to accomplish all the tasks in time.» (Neither bad nor well)
- we knew that we have to do the design model and poe but sometimes the details were explained one by one after we started to work.it should be cleared at the beginning» (Rather well)
- Generally the aims were quite clear.» (Rather well)
- i think we knew what to do. i"d anderstood the task. only i didnt knew that POEs will be for "public" promocion goal. I thought its just research for us. The visual structure could be different if i knew it. » (Rather well)
- IF not, than you could ask somebody!» (Rather well)
- At a few first days it was little bit confusing what we (as a team) are suppose to do.» (Rather well)
- At the beginning, some of the tasks were not very clearly.» (Rather well)
- we were bit confused about POE... this topic should be explain better» (Rather well)
- it was rather well and it was good that every information was on the blog» (Rather well)
- At first I was a little lost, but while the days passed the aim became very clear.» (Rather well)
- We started very slow, but after some days we clearly knew what it was all about!» (Rather well)
- It was very clear.» (Very well)
- I didn"t feel a lack of information» (Very well)

- Seeing and hearing the teachers up front would have been nice. this was not the case at Did. from my point of view, it would be advisable to bring forth the teachers and have them present themselves in order to establish a relation with the students directly at the intruduction. Rather than one person talking about everything. By doing it like you did, students often queued up at Mark and Thomas for questions, whereas other teachors seemed too unfamiliar to adress. » (Rather bad)
- truly before this workshop i newer seen the website. i had no idea what we will do. i think some of the work from previous workshops should be shown or more described.» (Neither bad nor well)
- i don´,t know because i participated on workshop as "understudy" - i get known on Friday that i go to the workshop, so i arrived on monday morning - i haven´,t fould any free flight or bus earlier» (Neither bad nor well)
- unfortunately I missede the first day of presentation» (Neither bad nor well)
- Tomas in an unreplaceable resource and gives straight-to-the-point descriptions but unfortunatelly not all can be said on the first meeting» (Rather well)
- I felt the introduction was good as it was not too long (as most of us had just arrived) and it was very relaxed.» (Rather well)
- Could have been a bit more inspiring pictures but it was very clear and informative.» (Rather well)
- I didn"t have a problem understanding it.» (Rather well)
- I prefer more accurate start of the day programme. Other things (like meeting with ambassadors, lectres) were done propetly.» (Rather well)
- Everything was clear from the beginning...» (Rather well)
- I (Me as the gent exchange student) have seen this presentation few times ago and as the introduction of what UD does mean it works well. I also estimate the reception after so I could met people of my group before the the workshop actually started. That helped next day to faster decisions making, and in certain way it was easier in general.» (Rather well)
- i liked it, was clear and showed on what do we have to focus» (Very well)
- The workshop had been introduced well which provided good start of work on monday morning» (Very well)
- Smart guy.» (Very well)
- Yes, Tomas is very nice person to listen to him when he speaks,and he is doing his job very well.» (Very well)

- some were very interesting some some not(i think also about organisation authorities). some lecture were shown to late.

- It would be good if during this walking groups were exchanging ambassadors.Our group had all the time the woman that lost some sight at the end of life.I think we should also see the person without sight from the birth (which we had seen only for 10 seconds when other group passed by).We could learn more. » (Neither irrelevant nor relevant)

- Some of their (ambassadors) input was included in the design but as not all the gruoup members were able to participate in the conversation and thus some unwanted decisions were made» (Neither litel nor much)
- I found that it was difficult to approach the ambassadors however they were very helpful once we spoke to them. Robert White was the most helpful during the design stages.» (Rather much)
- they were very nice and easy to talk with» (Rather much)
- It could be more if somebody would translate them all the time. It was so bad for students from other countries when on one day the discussion was mostly in dutch and after 30 min of discussion we had 5 min translation. At the end all the international students got bored and went away. Even the dutch students were reluctant to translate what is going on.I really enjoyed talking by myself with amassadors, I learned a lot from them.» (Rather much)
- some discusions beetwen dutch students and ambassadors were in dutch and there was nobody to translate it» (Rather much)

- There was nothing more fruitful then the collaboration with ambassadors and experts.» (Very much)
- by all very relevant, only by Robert and his acompaignment, i would say that unfortunatelly i had sometime problems with understanding the English, because he was native speaker and had dialect that i wasn´,t used to recognize so well. Not every time it was possible to return the topic of talking and ask Robert to say it once more. But hovewer, he was also very relevant consultant for me. » (Very much)
- without them it would be impossible. enormously helpfull» (Very much)
- They helped us as good as possible, aspecially with the different models» (Very much)

- Sometimes I find all the solutions a bit exaggerated and It was most of the time an exercise in urban design.» (Very litle)
- I had heart in this topic quite enough while the workshop started» (Rather litel)
- We have to admit,that there already existed a lot of basic/famous help elements in architecture for the accessibility for blind and handicap people. But the application of this elements were an enrichement !» (Rather litel)
- you can never consider just one group of users. needs of blind are opposite to the needs of wheelchairs...and so on. it opend my eyes to much more troubles than just blind designing.» (Neither litel nor much)
- I cannot say it now without distance. But hopefully next designing process will make it clear. Good is that sometimes, someplace there exist one way of accessibility which is good for everyone. So we can make very simple things instead of unnecessary ones.» (Neither litel nor much)
- It has given me an idea of how defferently can different people see the same thing.» (Rather much)
- It did change a lot. » (Rather much)
- now I have different view of architecture» (Rather much)

- I knew something about accessibility in architecture before this workshop, but i learn some new informations and i give more attention to this probem now. » (Rather much)
- it did» (Very much)
- When I walk around the street now I notice things a lot more clearly.» (Very much)
- they pointed out a lot of this I"ve never thought about» (Very much)
- It helped me to realise that also handicapped people want to move by themselves through the city.» (Very much)
- My perception changed very much.» (Very much)
- really, it has changed my insight on this problematic. and it was perfect, that we could consult it with more persons so we could see, how is it apprehended by younger, older, man, woman, visually impaired or completely blind..» (Very much)
- it is great if u have REAL feedback...» (Very much)
- change my viewpoint for some buildings» (Very much)

- When in doubt - comments from Marc give you even more question. The help from Tomas was useful and constructive. The other teachers didn"t provide any input to the projects or anything» (Rather bad)
- I felt that when we were working in the studio, the help was a little bad. The only peron who went around all the designs and was most useful was Robert White.» (Rather bad)
- some were fantastic motivators we should have free space in doing they should tell us nothing directly with some i have no pleasure to speak because of it was no energy or no feedback or i wanted to have free decision- no "force" what it shoud look like. we were designers isnt it? » (Neither bad nor good)
- Sometimes Marcs opinion didn"t agree with those of ambasadors.» (Neither bad nor good)
- Depends.. with Marc it was so confusing, each time we got confusing information and not precise answers, I was rather getting more stressed after that.With Tom was really good to work with as well as with Thomas. Robert White gave us a lot of support and information, his advice were helping us a lot.» (Neither bad nor good)
- Except Tomas Ooms and Antonio Caperna. They were spending a lot time with us. And were leading constructive discussion. Support of the rest could be better.» (Neither bad nor good)
- quite good but sometimes we had the oposite information» (Rather good)
- When the teachers accaully have time, it was often good. but understandibly, Mark was often busy. I think the desgin of the workshop made Mark and Thomas become some sort of go-to-guys, whereas other teachers had to trigger every dialog themselves, since they seemed too unfamiliar to the students inorder to recieve questions. » (Rather good)
- I liked the most consulting with Tomas Ooms, his remarks were very relevant and it really helped us in designing. Information form Antonio Caperna vere a little confusing (anybody in my group understood it, even if we understood the English without problem)» (Rather good)
- Maybe they should be more consequent but overall it was very good» (Rather good)
- Yes, they helped quite good. » (Rather good)
- not from all of them» (Rather good)
- Teachers were very helpfull, and always willing to help and answer our questions.» (Very good)

- but there could be much bigger discussion and commenting of the designs. I´,d prefer more comments. To know more precisely, what were the strong points and the weak points of design. But generally it was very good and i learned many thinks. I also suggest, that it might be good, to have one official review in the middle of designing, because i think it could make the works to be even better and more profonded.» (Very much)

- Regular students are lazee.» (Very little)
- Some of the students were not concerned about the work that much» (Rather little)
- The orginazation didnt accually do much to get the social life going around the workshop. i remember a few things: some wine and a casual chat after the introduction (Nov 30th). the multicultural dinner. other than that, all the social life was generated by the students initiatives themselves. The rooms where divided so that students from the same countries shared bedrooms. From a social-generating point of view, that seemed odd.» (Rather little)
- we should have sunday free... and i eat not at belgian lunch time so it was a little bit complicated for me. and the coffe should be for us or as far as possible unvisible for students. i hate to see food and not to try it» (Neither litel nor much)

- some big groups had problems» (Rather well)
- it was good. I´,d appreciate if all people from workshop would go once or twice together to some pub. If the initiative would raise from the organisers.

- The majority tried to make favorise the dialogue.» (Very little)
- i don´,t see any problems raised by the different cultures. But there was an other, bigger problem, that the working groups were too big, i think. And it caused to many oppinions to conflate on the one final solution.

And that break can be also very useful in study of universal design and architecture when we can observe exaples in real. it is also very useful for students of architecture to visit and consider new cities and architecture. especially if it is someone who can point us the most important for us places and exaples of design. » (Rather much)

- There is such saying"Travels educate only educated people". I learned as much as I could, Tom was really helpful during this workshop.» (Neither litel nor much)

- I think we could learn everything in a cours of a few pages. » (Neither litel nor much)
- The program provides a lot of information for student who want and can make use of it (Gent students had other courses as well). The knowledge gained can open new possibilities for other longer courses » (Rather much)

- the weather»
- Teams of 10 persons, too much, as for me..»
- There was nothing really bad.»
- The Hostel de Draeke»
- lectures too long - there should be break after max 1,5 hour of lecture. It is impossible to concentrate for 100% the mind so long. The groups should be smaller. I think 5-8 people would be optimum.»
- disinformation, the lack of precise info, lack of place for making models, bad communication with local students, atmosphere of working in group.. it was so bad, working with Marc was so difficult, though I think he was trying his best.»
- Waiting for late start of lecture - because of late students»
- cooparation with one student...no dialog was possible.»
- I can"t say one thing which it was the worst... There are some whiles where you feel a little stressed, but it is an intensive program, so it"s normal.»

- Polish people and task distribution. »
- some lectures»
- I would have liked lecture more delve into technical architecture"s topics»
- The working groups were to large . It is sometimes problem to find some compromise. Because every student has diveferent estimation of best architecture especially when is coming from diferent cultural environment. But in the end we have decided seperate to smaller groups working on diferent impositions. Group of 3 people is able to agree better than 10 persons. »
