To help your group and the teachers prepare for the tutor meetings, we would like you to answer a few questions in between sessions. The following paragraphs list the questions for each of the weeks, please write you answers directly underneath the questions.


After the kick-off - Week 1

  • What are you expecting to learn during the Robots course?

We expect to learn to take initiative, to work efficiently as a team, to give useful feedback to each other.

  • What kind of coaching do you expect?

We expect passive coaching, where the coaches will only help us when we ask them to. Furthermore, we expect that they will answer our specific questions without them pushing us in a particular direction.

  • What kind of coaching would you prefer?

We prefer the coaches to give constructive feedback on our ideas and extend them with their vision and opinion.

  • What will the coaches expect of you?

They will expect from us to behave actively in the team, show initiative, be motivated, show creativity and come up with innovative ideas.

After the first tutor meeting - Week 2

  • What is the most interesting thing you learned in the coaching meeting of the previous week and why?

We needed to be more detailed in what we wanted to do. Although we understood that we still needed more details, we were really expected to be very specific in what we want to do, and do our research in that area. Also, the coaching meeting motivated us to contact TU Delft, since they gave us the confidence that they probably would cooperate with us on this project.

  • How did you incorporate coaches' feedback of the previous meeting in your project?

We immediately contacted the research group at TU Delft. Unfortunately, we are yet to receive any meaningful communication back.

  • What new activities did you undertake during this week? What did you learn from these activities?

See above point. We learned that establishing communication is difficult. Furthermore, since we still are not fully sure on what we can do, we are a bit behind with regards to other activities.

  • What did you do to prepare for next week's meeting?

We tried to determine what we wanted to do, but because of communication troubles which were out of our control, we did not achieve much else. However, we have made a backup-plan in case Delft does not reply (in time). We will present this during the next meeting.

After the second tutor meeting - Week 3

  • What is the most interesting thing you learned in the coaching meeting of the previous week and why?

That we tried the best we could to contact TU Delft, while that didn't work we were on a good way to develop the backup plan, which was a good idea.

  • How did you incorporate coaches' feedback of the previous meeting in your project?

We stopped with trying to lay contact with TU Delft and we focussed on our backup plan.

  • What new activities did you undertake during this week? What did you learn from these activities?

Thomas contacted KNGF, from this we learned that the dogs don't know themselves where they are going and that they don't have a place in mind where they need to go, but their owners do. So the main function of the dog is to make sure that the visually impaired gets safely to their destination. Meeting with Tech United.

  • What did you do to prepare for next week's meeting?
