The inter-disciplinary structure of the course 11821 Site Investigations combined with the real-world case and just-in-time teaching applied, has resulted in more motivated and hard working students. They attend classes and practical sessions, and they put much energy in the writing of their final projects. As teachers we receive far better and more interesting reports to read, due to the fact that several tools are combined to provide a better understanding of a certain problem. We have student evaluation data available from CEQ tests and standard DTU course evaluation, as well as qualitative statements from individual student feedback, which will be presented in the final paper.
