Student representatives for the course EDA 343 Computer communication the following students have been randomly selected to be student representatives: FAIVRE LEVASSEUR KALMNER HANSSON ALMGREN MICKAËL SWANN JOHAN KALLE SIMON [email protected] chalmers. se [email protected] chalmers. se [email protected] chalmers. se [email protected] chalmers. se [email protected] chalmers. se Being a student representative means that you are responsible for evaluating the course together with the examiner/course responsible and the program board of the program that gives the course. The evaluation process consists of three parts: 1. The student representatives and the examiner/course responsible are to have two informal meetings during the course. The first one should be in the second study week, the second one after approximately half the course. The first meeting is mostly for you to get acquainted, the second one is for the student representatives to give feedback to the teacher on the progress of the course. 2. After the course an evaluation questionnaire is sent out. The examiner will get an opportunity to add extra questions to the standard questionnaire. 3. After the course, in the middle of the next study period, there will be an evaluation meeting where the student representatives and the examiner/course responsible for the course meet the program board of the program who gives the course, discussing the course’s advantages and potential for improvement. For participating in the final evaluation meeting the student representatives get a gift certificate of 200 SEK valid at Cremona.
