Rather than telling you what to do, teachers ask you what you want to do and help you to accomplish your goals. The teachers I met during the programme gave me the feeling, that they really care about their students, though they have a lot of other things to deal with. I never felt left out or helpless, I always knew who to contact. Teachers ask their students almost every week for feedback and they are constantly working on concepts to improve knowledge transfer and course experience.
