3. What do you think about the content and scope of the course? Do you think that any sections could be removed or do you have any suggestions about sections that could be added?

- yes,if the course can a little bit deep, not just going through the book»
- Boring content and way of presenting LCA»
- it was good»
- I think it would be very good if you add something about the topics: 1)Carbon foot print 2)water foot print and try to add some class exercises about them.»
- I think it was good as it was.»
- The course gives a good understanding of the LCA.»
- No, contents was ok.»
- I think that most parts of the course were fairly good. »
- More examples of LCAs, perhaps in a seminar.»
- The content is good»
- I just expected method of LCA: Application of LCA was a good surprise. Maybe a study visit could be more attractive»
- I think it"s good as it is. Very good that the lectures follow the book»
- content is clear everything seems to be ok»
- project good-but the tasks are too different. apples vs complicated processes...it seems lite easies tasks gives a better prespective of LCA than complicated. (Also the nu of ppl in the groups could be better...5 are too many)»

6. Did you find the lectures well-structured and easy to follow?


- Increase the pase of the lectures on the method ... BUT there are so much information on the slides that it is sometimes impossible to follow. for example whole excel sheets that was suppose to teach us how to calculate...puh! you could not see a thing and did´,t understand at all how to do the calculations»
- Anne´,s language some times difficult to understand completely due to overlapping of words.»
- Not easy to follow, feeling that there are a lot of repetitions.»
- I think Anne-Marie is hard to follow, mumbles a lot. Didn"t go to more than a few lectures»
- I think that in the beginning Anne-Marie were quite involved but it did fade out and she became rather detached. »
- Anne-Maries lectures could be more enthusiastic»
- I like Cristels aquarel power point slides.»
- couldn"t attend SCA. SIK seemed too chemical, guess biochem students gor more out of it.»
- I only attended a few lectures since I was unable to come»
- The lectures follow the course book too much (too structured somteimes). It gets a little bit boring and hard to concentrate when the lecture more or less is exactly like the content of the book. Maybe some more examples from real life can make it more easy to understand»

- I specially liked the guest lecture about green marketing and land use change» (Very useful)
- JOhan - not so useful, Ellen - very interesting and good» (Useful)
- but less compny promotion and more this is what i do...» (Useful)

- Had many lectures that collided. » (Did not attend guest lectures)

8. Were the smaller exercises in the course instructive?


- we don"t use the software so far»
- software excise is very good but useless because there are no practice classes and lectures.»
- The software exercise could be more interesting e.g. by making us study one LCA before and then try to solve it with the software. »
- Beginners LCA (if that is exc C?) was extremely good two do. I did it three times and would have liked to have another similar one also.»
- helped a lot in the projects too»
- It could be useful to actually use the software for some actual project or implement it in some way.»

9. The project


- We should be able to decide our own groups. Since we have different backgrounds, it is sometimes hard to find time together.»
- My supervisor was Kristin»
- Definitely need extra time... really time-consuming especially for the projects for 4 people»
- we used all the scheduled time an extra time along the whole project plus more than a week full time the whole week and we still had far from enough time!»
- The supervisions were not good, since it confused us more, they were not clear and did not help to guide us. »
- Some projects are really big and a more detailed introduction and definition could be given. The beginning was really vague. More sessions are needed like the first one of the project with the presence of the supervisors to ask questions "in live". The systems of hand-ins is good but if we are in the wrong path we have to wait the consultation 3-4 more days to know it. The hand-ins were not equal. A lot of work was provided between hand-in 3 and 4. Some information came really late (allocation problem) and we had to rush at the end. The co-operation within the group went well, the only problem was to find time to meet since we came from different master programs.»
- Swedish Kristin has been excellent at answering to our questions The project took a lot of time»
- In my group we had Christin Liptow and she was not a good supervisor. She gave no positiv feedback at all and it did not feel like she were involved and wanted to help us. She need to be better at giving more contructive critic, after a meeting with her the group did not feel happy to continue with the project since all we had done were incorrect more of less. After a meeting with a supervisor you should feel that you are excited to go and continue with the project! »
- A lot of time spent writing the report, which did not add much knowledge of LCA. The supervisors should have been more specific early on. A lot of work had to be done after the last consultation.»
- The date are no more relevant. It´,s time to change the subject of the projects, I think. OK the educational goal is achieved but it would be much more interresting LCA about fluorescent light bulb/classic ones, plastic/glass, biofuel/classic fuel etc even if it need data collection from your part and our part. »
- the task too complicated and the group too large (5ppl) easier tasks in smaller groups so that one can get a better grip of th whole project.»
- Almost no time at all for some of the hand-ins. the projects started way too late. more time is needed. also the feedback was really bad when we were told to do changes which we later had to change back and things like that. so there were some really bad communication from the supervisor.»
- Our feedback was not helping us much, liptow was actually realy confusing to have as a supervisor. I think that she didnt know the answeres to our question at all, the only propper help I got was from Tillman. »

Genomsnitt: 2.04

- i think it is good for beginners,very in details» (Excellent)
- Very good book! Easy to follow and understand.» (Excellent)
- Well structured, interessting and packed with good info. » (Excellent)
- it should include some thing about the new emerging concepts of carbon foot print, human foot print and water foot print etc.» (Good)
- Honnestly, it´,s a good book and I m happy to have it BUT I really not appreciated the fact that you force us to buy it. You are the author so you can at least reduce the price or, better, lend books. I´,"s possible: in an other course´,(heat and energy system), the teatcher lend us the books and we have to give it back at the end of the quarter. I reallly take it like a theft and my opinion about the course didn´,t start very well...You are not the only course that we take and imagine if we have to spend 40¤*2*4 per year!» (Good)
- A bit messy, but OK» (OK)
- The language makes the reading difficult. The structure is unclear e.g. the problem of recycling is dealt with in different parts of the book. The exercises and corrections are good (especially ex C) for the understanding.» (OK)

- The exam is aftes this evaluation is supposed to be finished! » (?)
- "Deadline is set to May 25." How is it possible to answer to the question då?» (Not examined yet)
- If you want feedback on the exam, perhaps its a bad idea to have the deadline for the course evaluation before the exam date... » (Not examined yet)
- I had to leave my appartment the same day that the exam took place so it was impossible for me to attend. But with such a good book Im only looking forward to some summer reading» (Not examined yet)

- Good projects etc.» (Yes)
- Deadlines! It is not very fair to give the student 2 days to prepare a hand-in and then the teachers have 1 week to correct it!!!! it is NOT ok to give us work over the holiday, we aswell are free on national holidays, it is not respectfull against the students! » (Yes, somewhat)
- I think that the deadlines we had in the beginning were a bit short of time. For example that we got back our outline on Friday and hand it in again on Thuesday. It was hard sometimes because all in our group had different schedules.» (Yes, somewhat)
- It would be better if time edit is used.» (No)
- late start of projects. short time for deadlines. bad supervision» (No)

- learned alot, very "matnyttig" course!» (Yes)
- I´,m hesistating to start one about light bulbs, just for me! At the beginning I wanted to just compare the models but this course convinced me to do a LCA.» (Yes, with some additional studies)

14. Further opinions, comments and suggestions how the course can be improved?

- can more lectures from anna marie be added?»
- I think the work done for the project was usefull, but I believe Christin could not guide us properly. »
- don"t know exec-telly...»
- It was not a good thing to have a deadline 15 min after a lecture, especially not after a guest lecture. During one of the guest lectures, half the class was away finishing their reports. Also, it would be much more beneficial to get feedback on the projects before having to present them.»
- The supervisor Christin needs to be more involved and try do be more contructive with her feedback! »
- It could be useful to be able to try part of the group project on the database exercise, so you can connect the database more to reality The lectures can be more inspiring.»
- =>More interresting subjects for the projects =>loan of the book. (if we don´,t give back, we don´,t pass the course)»
- no»
- our supervisor christin (german) had a bad attitude and was very defensive when questioned and gave us incorrect support from the beginning. With anther supervisor the work would have given muck more!! She told us to do things and then took them back (not t the first or second meeting-but at the third which stole A LOT of time from us). She has to be more humble (which I had a feeling she got at the end) but for us it was already too late.»
- start the projects earlier. »
- Maybe Liptow should take a course in LCA and a course in how to give feedback. Appart from that, excellent course!»
