Title: Teaching robotics through play and challenge
Authors: Barker, Phil
Keywords: Electronic and electrical engineering
Issue Date: 2006
Publisher: © Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre, Loughborough University
Abstract: This case study has been developed as part of the Engineering Subject Centre Teaching Awards 2005-2006, from data gathered through a demonstration of the teaching and learning materials available, interviews with the tutor and a student focus group. It examines an approach to balance the presentation of challenging mathematically-intense theoretical material with a play aspect designed to allow practical experimentation that reinforces topics learned earlier in the course. The Robotics 4 course is taught in the final year of a Scottish university Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree programme.
