Work together and learn to know eachother

9. How do you prefer the course work groups to be put together?

The course work groups are put together in different ways in the courses and we would like to know what you think about some alternatives. Please select the statements below in the order you feel that you agree with them. You can also suggest other ways to create course work groups.

Rangordningsfråga. Siffran anger medelposition.

1.I dont like any of the alt. I suggest another way, see below0.5

- Since this is more or less what will happen in work life.» (?)
- Variation is good.» (?)
- Having a mix between choosing groups yourselves and it being assigned randomly would probably be the best. » (?)
- While I prefer having the teacher make the groups, I think it"s a good idea to allow students to form their own groups if they have matching schedules. This is important for e.g. lab sessions, as everyone has to be able to attend at the same time.» (?)
- I have not had an assigned group project on the masters program. But I work together with classmates/friends all the time.» (?)
- I prefer to not work in a set group (I submit my own assignment) but I like to discuss with other people working on the same assignment as I do. The reason is that i prefer to be able to work on an assignment whenever I want and not have to schedule time with a class mate. » (?)
- I think that you should get to chose your group on your own . But if you can"t find anyone the teacher could help. » (?)
- Creating groups on pinpong is usually quite effective. Then students just sign up to a group which is also filled with other students. Sometimes randomly and sometimes by availability (labs etc.)» (?)
- Either we choose our own groups, as we have our work buddies and it is generally easier for us. Or you guys do it and we moan a bit then get it done. Sometimes things get nasty but hey, that"s life.» (?)
- Depend on what kind of work. Smaller is preferred to have random groups and larger works is better to chose your self.» (?)
- if we have to choose one theme among different proyects, it will be good if the teacher assign the groups depending in our choice» (?)
- with ability to appeal » (?)

10. During the first study year of the Master program, when was it easiest to learn to know new class mates?

Rangordningsfråga. Siffran anger medelposition.

1.None of the alternatives, but ... see below0.7
2.During the introduction, the study weeks 1-4 in SP10.7
3.At different events on Chalmers after introd. - see below0.8
4.When we worked together in projects1.1

- I was an exchange during the first year.» (?)
- I already knew more than half of the class before we started the master programme so I haven"t really gotten to know that many new people.» (?)
- I switched master program during the first semester, so I missed the first study period with my current master program.» (?)
- I knew all but the exchange students at the start of the master program.» (?)
- I havn"t really gotten to know that many classmates. I"ve just stayed friends with the people coming from the same Bachelor class as me. And it only just now that I"ve started exchanging ideas about assignments with MPENM students I recognize from most of my courses during the year.» (?)
- Got to know most of my friends during my bachelor years» (?)
- While taking classes together» (?)
- Just talking after class.» (?)
- On events we arrangeged on our own as a class.» (?)
- There were no common introduction as far as I know.» (?)
- I have mostly worked alone but I did get to know a new person through a project. The first few weeks a friend in MPAPP suggested that we had an after work at PRIPPS, which was very fun.» (?)
- Master student dinner» (?)
- I read most of my master courses before I was officially assigned to the program, as I was 1.5 hp short of being able to apply, therefore, I never really partook in any introductions or other events.» (?)
- We all knew each other from before. Some faces were new of course. You either engaged with people you did not know earlier or you stuck to your people. Thinking about it, non of the "groups" from previous years have changed much or at all.» (?)
- We didn"t have an introduction, so it was difficult to get to know new classmates. » (?)
- Student parties» (?)

11. How can we improve the chances for a good cohesion between the students in the program?

Do you have any suggestions about how the program can improve cohesion between students within the program?
We are grateful for all ideas from you!

- Special rooms for us.»
- More activities in the first weeks»
- The first day was the only time we were actually together the whole class, and that was just during the hour or so we chose courses for the first semester. Maybe day 1 could be free from lectures and after choosing courses, getting information etc there could be some kind of "gathering" where the students get to introduce themselves and maybe play a game or do some kind of teamwork exercise. Some information about how the student divisions work would probably be helpful for newcomers to Chalmers. Doesn"t have to be for long, an hour or so would be an improvement! During the year some kind of equivalent to the "årskursträff" with information about what is happening at the program etc would probably be appreciated as well.»
- I do not have any good idea about this unfortunetly. I can see why it is a good idea to have this bonding or oppurtunity to mingle between programs but i do not see any natural meeting point or how to set it up.»
- I didn"t attend the introduction, due to exchange, but good introduction activities are important»
- Maybe invite some guest lecturer in the first few weeks of the year. Something that"s interesting and might influence what direction people aim for in their studies. Just a random thought.»
- More organized activities the first weeks. Get to know eachother games.»
- An introduction day between the classmates during the welcome week or the first week»
- By promoting activities during the introduction, maybe in a similar way that it is done with 1st year students. Having phadders from year 2 (Master) would be maybe a nice way to promote integration between the new students/senior students, new/new and even senior/senior students. »
- Dinners, lunches, recreational moments»
- better introduction and reception.»
- Events for all students, not just exchange students.»
- Bonding activities early on.»
- It"s really hard since MPAPP students can choose courses pretty much how the like and so I hardly ever have a course with another fellow MPAPP student. I therefore think that the best solution would be something outside of the study enviroment, maybe another dinner? Students love food and the last "Master dinner" thing was really fun.»
- Have something for the masterprgrame, like the master student dinner(it was awsome)»
- More activities, maybe out a day aside to do some games, solve problems etc. to "force" us students to talk to each other. »
- More events specific for our programme»
- Maybe arrange something more like the "mottagning" some kind of dinner or something right in the beginning of the semester so you get to meet new people. Also introduce places to study to the exchange students. Many of them go home instead of study at school which makes them less included in the student life and so on. Group projects is also a great opportunity. Doesn"t have to be big projects just like discussion groups during lectures and stuff like that. So people feel like they can talk to the others naturally. »
- Have different activities in the beginning for the students from the same master program.»
- More outdoor/indoor activities apart from studying»
- More program specific events perhaps? Barbecues in the late summer, "mingle" evenings at winter time and so on.»
- Feels like there are few events for master students specifically, and since people take different courses, it is hard to get to know new people.»
- When electing courses for the following study period, maybe a "get together event" for those courses involving projects. One could meet with other students having thought of choosing that course too, but also meet with students that has taken the course and teachers. With the event students have the opportunity to share ideas and experience with eachother to possibly go on and elect the course together to be in the same project group. I think that would make the process of getting up and running with a project in a course faster but also more fun when you share the project with people having the same ideas. Also there tends to alot more projects than student groups which makes it hard to explore them all before the deadline for choosing happens.»
- Random, teacher selected work groups is a good way to force people to meet new people. However, some people might get along when hanging out but hate each others guts when working together. Creating larger work groups (for example lab groups) where people may choose their own group but the groups are sufficiently large to host more than a small circle might be a way to circumvent work force frictions.»
- It"s difficult to meet your classmates because most of them had already done the subject of the fisrt year in their bachelor, it will be nice to have some event just for us in the first weeks»
- It would be good to have some kind of activity where everyone can mingle and get to know each other during the first week of school. »
- Maybe some more introduction events or cooperate more with the student divison or union. A major point that needs improvement is proper events for international students and chalmers students to meet.»

12. Is there anything else you want to comment?

- I think the main reason for international students having difficulties mixed with Swedish students because the system in Sweden, bachelor students kept until the master program. For them, they already had their own group in the first place. »
- There aren"t much students in my class. So I guess I don"t know much about cohesion :P.»
- It is always hard for the new exchange student that starts the master programs. Al that alredy studied at Chalmers has there old friend so there is always a trend that it will become two groups, one "Swedish" and one exchange student group. To have mixed groups in different smaller works can help to remove this separation. »
