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. The workshop explains the current capabilities of humanoid robots, informs about the central research and development issues and provides ideas for the use of humanoid robots as assistants in education, especially in inverted classroom scenarios.
*There will be a demonstration session in which Prof. Handke will show 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.
