Situated Learning-Based Robotics Education

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


This Innovative Practice Work-In-Progress Paper presents a situated learning-based robotics education pedagogy for computing students. Different from traditional textbook-directed robotics courses, in this work, we develop a hands-on, project-oriented robotics curriculum based on the situated learning methodology for undergraduate and graduate students. The innovative pedagogical framework and curriculum development are presented. Preliminary results and evaluations suggest that our situated learning-based pedagogy and developed robotics curriculum provide an effective solution for computing students to learn robotics.
