Flipped Classroom Workshop Series 5

Teaching in a Digital Age: Humanoid Robots as Assistants in Education

Humanoid robots are becoming more and more popular in many areas of public life: nursing, banking, retail and, to some extent, teaching. In his government-funded project H.E.A.R.T. (Humanoid Emotional Assistant Robots in Teaching), Prof. Handke explores new ways in higher education by using humanoid robots as assistants, and is thus setting the trend here. In this workshop, Prof. Handke explained the current capabilities of humanoid robots, informed about the central research and development issues and provided ideas for the use of humanoid robots as assistants in education, especially in inverted classroom scenarios.
 
*There was a demonstration session in which Prof. Handke showed how humanoid robots can take up the role of “lecturing”, leaving more time for the teacher to facilitate learning activities especially in a flipped classroom setting.
