MNF 115 “Natural science perspective on sustainable development” is an inter-faculty course for about 50 students. The course normally gets high student rating on general content and lectures, but low rating on student activity and engagement. In order to increase student activities throughout the semester new tasks as semester papers and seminars were introduced too. Student evaluation were performed 3 times (2002-2004). Results showed that small student group size (1-2 persons) functioned better than larger groups. Only small extra resources were necessary to significantly improve performance and results of semester papers, but lack of such resources significantly reduced the results. Increased effort on student activities connected to both writing, guidance, feedback and seminars did not improve the final exam results. Average final exam grade C was obtained without extra resources.
