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?

Thomas I expect to learn how to work on a project with minimal guidelines and predetermined goals.

Wouter I expect to learn how to do research in a group by creating a concept of a subject that could be used a real scientific study.

Kaj I expect to learn to develop something with a group where we only have some basic restrictions.

Daniel I do not really have that many expectations on what I should learn knowledge-wise. What I expect is to learn to work a lot more effectively in a team, as well as how to organise a project in a good way.

  • What kind of coaching do you expect?

Thomas I expect a coaching consisting of feedback mostly based around questions asked by us.

Wouter I mainly expect feedback to the things we write on the wiki page and feedback on our progress.

Kaj I expect that the coaching only consists of telling us whether we are on the right track or not.

Daniel During the coaching sessions I expect the coaches to ask for an update on how far we are in the project. Then, they can gave their opinion / suggestions etc., which we may or may not incorporate into the project.

  • What kind of coaching would you prefer?

Thomas I would prefer a kind of coaching with weekly feedback based on what was done that week as well as some possible tips on how to continue said work. And ofcourse the having our questions answered.

Wouter Answers to all the questions that we encounter during our research and someone who tells us whether we are on the right track or not.

Kaj I prefere tutors that tell us when we are on the right track or not.

Daniel I would prefer the kind of coaching where we can ask for their input once a week during the coaching sessions. With input I mean that they can give feedback on what we are doing.

  • What will the coaches expect of you?

Thomas I think the coaches will expect a lot of initiative and autonomy of us.

Wouter To ask all the questions we have and to inform them about our progress.

Casper I expect to learn how to work on a project without any guidelines, in previous DBLs or project there were always guidelines or rubrics showing what you could do to earn more points or how you should handle your project. This time it is all on yourself to decide so it will be a very new experience. I expect the coach to mainly keep the group on track to keep our focus on robots and to tell us when we have to dig deeper for our project or to tell us to actually make something concrete. I prefer to have a coach who we can just ask questions when we are unsure of what to do and that they disturb us as little as possible with for example weekly mandatory meetings. I assume the coaches expect of us to mainly keep telling them how we are progressing every week and to deliver a good project.

Kaj I think that the coaches expect from us that we finish our homework/the wiki on time and that we honour existing commitments. Also, I think that the tutors like a high commitment for the project.

Daniel I believe that they expect some form of strictness in following what they believe to be a good way of doing a project.

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?

That we were allowed to use a phone as a robot in our project because we weren’t yet sure how to include robots in our project.

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

We arranged a meeting to make our idea more concrete and decide on the specifics so that we can now present our idea and explain what needs to be done

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

We looked at the possibilities and we discussed what we wanted to do with our idea and how to divide the tasks.

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

We wrote down the most important decisions we made, we already made our concept clear and globally divided the tasks.

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 should be able to tell why our game is different to other concepts like e.g. duolingo.

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

We worked out the test and explained our decisions on how we are going to do the testing. We are also updating the wiki page of the state of the art.

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

We discussed on what aspects our game is and has to be different than others and why. We also extensively looked at our target audience and test groups.

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

We made everything more concrete and made sure we could explain why our game is different.

After the third tutor meeting - Week 4

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

That we had to keep in mind what our design choices were and why we made them especially keeping in mind how it would be if we had more time. We were also told that we had to keep in mind that we had to see how many people we need so that our test results are reliable.

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

We wrote down how our game would be if we had more time and we looked up how the ‘p’ value works in regards to reliable tests.

We prepared everything we need to do the testing so that we can start with that as soon as possible.

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

We organised a meeting in which we discussed the last few design choices and we worked out most of the unfinished things on the wiki.

After the fourth tutor meeting - Week 5

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

We should look again at the questions in our questionnaire and look at what we expect the participants to answer, to know if it’s worded well and if it’s a necessary question. Moreover, we should substantiate our hypothesis

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

We looked through the questions and changed the wording of them. A lot of questions said “Please explain your answer” which doesn’t give the participant a hint in what manner they should answer the question.

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

We finished the game, and tested the traditional way of learning on 1 participant to check if the time limit was good enough. We found out that the time limit should be 7 minutes instead of 10. in 10 minutes it is too easy to memorize all the 15 words. After that we had another traditional test on friday where we tested multiple people. we got as feedback that present wasn't clear to be a gift, since it can also refer to time.
