----------------------AIMS & SCOPE----------------------
The aim of this one-day workshop is to show you how to change your classes
from passive listening to active practising. Move away from a slides based
teaching method to a notebook based one, where direct interaction with
robots is embedded in the method itself.


----------------------Workshop Topics Include----------------------
09:30 to 10:00 -> THE THEORY BEHIND THE METHOD
The Constructionism Approach:

1. Deconstruction

2. Removing

3. Learning

4. Practicing

10:00 to 12:00 -> HOW TO IMPLEMENT THE THEORY FOR A ROS COURSE
The Notebook-Simulation Approach:

1. Creating the Notebooks

2. Embedding ROS Code in the Notebook

3. Embedding Real-time Graphics in the Notebook

4. Embedding Controls in the Notebook

5. Creating the Gazebo simulations

6. Connecting simulations to notebooks

7. Including projects

8. Including exams

9. Teaching Schedule

12:00 to 12:30 -> AN ALREADY EXISTING ONLINE SYSTEM
Experience how all that looks online



----------------------Who Should Attend-----------------------
Teachers who may need to prepare a syllabus for a summer/winter ROS course,
for a future semester, or for a robotics programming course.
