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?

Wouter: The ability to implement the knowledge acquired in the previous two courses.

Nikki: I expect to learn about the possibilities to use the knowledge we gained in the earlier courses.

Dirk: Applying knowledge gained from earlier courses as well as working with an interdisciplinary team.

  • What kind of coaching do you expect?

W: More subtle guidance than actual coaching, in the sense that we will not be told where to go, but that we rather are stopped if we are going in completely the wrong direction.

N: I expect the coaches to ask questions and give hints that lead us to look more critically at our own work.

D: Critical questions about our work so far and our future plans.

  • What kind of coaching would you prefer?

W: I am personally more fond of feedback regardless of the results. Not only saying when something is wrong but also when we are headed in a right direction. It gives a bit more peace of mind whilst working on a project.

N: I hope the coaches will guide us when we don't know which direction to go with our project, and that they will indicate if we are on the right track or not so we have the possibility to adapt our approach as needed to deliver a successful project.

D: I hope the coaches will us decide wether we are on the right track and should keep going or if we should head in a different direction.

  • What will the coaches expect of you?

W: Well, considering my lack of actual expertise concerning robotics (apart from the two other use robotics courses), I think the best thing to realise is that I try and I mean well.

N: I think that the coaches expect us to look critically at both our own work and the work of our group members. I also think the coaches expect us to participate actively in the feedback sessions (i.e. asking questions rather than just awaiting feedback).

D: I think that they want us to make clear what we have done so far and what our future plans are.
