- I couldn"t tick more than one box. The time is adequate and groups are of correct size. I think that group works are a great idea to understand more about our subject.» (Not very useful, I learned little from the discussions) (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)
- I cant click more than one answer, so I copied answers to below: -Useful, I learned much from the discussions -The groups were of adequate size -Adequate time scheduled Comments: The G.W. found interesting. I learnt not only our mission, but also other students too. Their opinions, methods, difficulties, creativities, teamwork and presentation style.» (Useful, I learned much from the discussions)
- More than one answer is not possible... but except for my tick above, I think that too little time was scheduled, and that the groups were of adequate size.» (Useful, I learned much from the discussions)
- group discussions were helpful because things were discussed that can be questioned. Trying to explain and discuss deepens your understanding of the subject. maybe the time scheduled was a little bit too short. On one side you were forced to deliver fast results, which is a good thing to learn, but on the other side sometimes discussions had to be cut off because otherwise results would not have been delivered ...» (Too little time scheduled)

10. Suggest how the group work can be improved next year!

- 1. Keep the grp.wrk. as fun as this year. 2. Avoid power point...whatsoever but write down on the transparent sheet as we did. 3. Three students per grp is the best. »
- Some more time might be needed. It would also be good to get more feedback from the teachers on how well the tasks are solved.»
- - Being able to give our mission sheets at the end of each session and have correction or comments or hints. - Sharing these mission sheets between groups, so that we know better what the others are doing.»
- Small tasks to hand in.»
- If just some bonus point would be dedicated to the final points, we will be able to work more on that .»
- The group size should be two persons.»

- Thanks for a great course!»
- No further comments. Merry Christmas and Happy new year !!»
- If some solved examples be added to the exercise book it will be good»
- Maybe it would be good to have the possibility to get some points from problems ("homeworks") that are handed in during the Study Period, to force the students from the beginning of the course to keep up with reading and as a consequence reduce their workload in the two weeks before the exam. (probably just helpful for students with time management problems)»
