Dear Roboticists,

We are very pleased to invite you to the Workshop on Teaching ROS which will be held in Vancouver on Saturday, 23rd September, 2017.

----------------------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.

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

Can people attend this workshop without registering for ROScon?

Thanks!

Sure, it is a completely different event, taking the chance that people will be there for ROSCON and/or IROS.

Sorry for the confusion. This event is not related to ROSCON in terms of organization, and ROSCON organizers held no reponsibility of it.
