*[Webinar] How to Teach ROS*
*Date&Time:* 23 July, 2018 @ 6pm to 7 pm CEST
*Registration website:*
*Free Event

ROS is the standard of robot programming, and is one of the most essential
course for a Robotics degree. But teaching ROS to students can be a
daunting process.
In this free webinar, we are going to show you how to make a practical ROS
course for your students. (NO ROS INSTALLATION REQUIRED)

*Content outline:*
*  Problems teaching ROS
*  Creating the perfect ROS class
*  How to define the teaching Schedule / Syllabus
*  How to create a ROS Jupyter notebook
*  How to create some Gazebo simulations
*  How to connect the notebook to simulations
*  How to add a practical project
*  How to include an exam

*  Change the ROS course from passive listening to active practicing.
*  Move away from a slides based teaching method to a notebook based one,
where direct interaction with robots is embedded in the method itself.

*Webinar for:*
Professors or Teaching assistants in Robotics who are preparing the ROS
Course for 2019 FALL.

*  The whole code will be provided to all attendees as a ROSject,
containing simulation, notebook with instructions and code.
*  All attendees will receive a guide on HOW TO TEACH ROS WITH NO HASSLE.
For those who are unable to make the time and date of the webinar, a
recorded version and teaching materials of the webinar will be available
for download.

Dr. Ricardo Tellez is the CEO of The Construct (www.theconstruct.ai), the
company world leader in teaching ROS online. He has a Ph.D. in Artificial
Intelligence. He has almost 10 years experience building software for ROS
based robots including human size humanoids. He is the author of 4 books
about learning ROS (the ROS in 5 days series of books). He teaches ROS at
the University of LaSalle in Barcelona for the graduate students at the
Master on Robotics. Additionally, he delivers every Tuesday a free ROS Live
Class on his Youtube channel, where attendants can learn and practice a ROS
subject. He is also the conductor of the ROS Developers Podcast where he
interviews every week a ROS expert about how to better program robots with
His goal is to make robots understand their world. And he has a plan.
