- I felt it was very difficult to discuss the problems with fellow group members, whether due to language barrier or level of interest/comprehension of the material in the class. group work provided very little stimulation to help gain a better understanding of the relevant concepts. People were very nice and agreeable.» (Very poorly)
- in the group:the communication was really bad in my group and just one other person was actively seeking something to do. the others waited untill they were "handed" something with students "outside" my group it worked really well though» (Very poorly)
- Svårt att sammarbeta med vissa asiatiska studenter då de hade betydligt lägre kunskaps- och ambitionsnivå. » (Very poorly)
- Group formation was very good done by teachers. Sometimes international students find little discrimination if it is left to the students themselves to form the group.» (Very well)

Genomsnitt: 3.75

- Svårt att se kopplingen till byggbranchen. » (Adequate)
- The material, in regards to environmental issues and sustainable living, seems essential to anyone interested in such things. Method of learning is very effective but requires much work. Defining the hypotheses of the projects before really knowing anything about what we were looking at was challenging. Making students do a more formal pre-study would maybe give incentive to learn relevant material before attemptign the hypothesis.» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Group projects are interesting»
- all reated topics»
- site visits, basic lab work, guest lecturer, »
- No exam.»
- Good with group work instead of tentamen»
- Fielwork and labanalysis but not so extensive. »

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- N/A»
- Way of grouping the students.I think student should be allowed to form their own groups.Lots of student drop the course because they thought they cannot work with people.»
- Make groups smaller, as well as scope of group projects»
- maybe change the work load of the two group projects. quite heavy work load on both of them»
- more focus on urban water. beeing able to chose groups with the requirement that the groups should be mixed (chalmers/exchange students/ different programms) maybe a fieldtrip to the green roof on chamlers building»
- för mycket inveklad kemi i vissa delar av kursen, ta gärna bort detta. »

16. What is your general impression of working in the Pingpong learning platform?

- Good»
- Good»
- useful...students need to adapt to it A general comment for pingpong...it automatically logs user out after ~5 min. THis is frustrating if you are waiting for a reply from someone and you forget to re-log-in»
- Very good.»
- Pingpong was a very nice suprise»
- horrible. I can"t understand why anyone would want to use it»
- bra!»

17. Any suggestions of how communication could be encouraged in Pingpong?

- N/A»
- Results must be posted at ping pong earlier.»
- sorry, no»
- better to upload info on studieportalen and then let people have the responsibility to email each other. also good because then you can just email the final work directly to your opponent and you can make it into a pdf because sometimes when you change from one computor programme to another the layout (that you maybe worked with for a really long time) can suddently change.»

18. Additional comments

- N/A»
- Thanks for the direction.»
- Should put more emphasis on writting skills. »
- all the best to the teachers in this course who were so helpful during the entire course»
