[webinar] How to Teach ROS

[Webinar] How to Teach ROS

Date&Time: Tuesday 23 July 2019 @ 6 pm CEST

Registration website: http://www.theconstructsim.com/webinar-how-to-teach-ros/

*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

Outcomes:

  • 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.

Materials:

  • 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.

RICARDO T√ČLLEZ, Ph.D.

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 ROS.
His goal is to make robots understand their world. And he has a plan.
