17:15 Kolloquium – Educational cyborgs and the use of robots in libraries
The relationship between humans and machines is changing. Hybrid education is increasingly widespread in research and higher education. In their brief lecture, the speakers discuss the use of educational robots in research and practice and explain specific aspects of the field.
As a case study, they introduce the project FHNW Robo Lab, which involves an interdisciplinary group of researchers overseeing and documenting the use of robots in training, professional development and in libraries of higher education institutions. The presentation primarily explores the real-life deployment of educational cyborgs from the perspective of media pedagogy and didactics in higher education. There are many goals, opportunities and challenges involved, and we look forward to discussing them with you.
ETH Library’s 17:15 Colloquium offers a platform for further education, discussion and networking. Speakers from Switzerland and abroad present topics from their fields in information sciences, library practice, archiving and museums as well as related specialist areas. The formula is a 30-minute presentation + a 30-minute discussion + a subsequent drinks reception = inspiration for our daily working lives.
It takes place three times a semester at 17:15 on the last Thursday of the month and is geared towards colleagues from the library, archiving, collections and museum sector, as well as interested members of the public.
