Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, the students will be able to assess the special challenges involved in conducting technical
workshops and take them into regard during the preparatory phase of the workshop. They will be able to adapt the contents of the training courses to the participants´ previous knowledge and provide appropriate support in dealing with technical questions. Students will also be able to collect and prepare the knowledge necessary for the course and impart it to the workshop participants in such a manner as to fit their age groups.
 
In addition, they will be able to put together tasks that are specifically adapted to their target groups and will help build and consolidate their workshop participants´ knowledge in the programming and construction of robots. They will know the technical possibilities and limitations of the systems used and will be able to estimate the logistical work involved in preparing the workshop.
