Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This article provides the overview and conceptual explanation of a robotic course using a peer learning activity. In this approach, the demo-based peer teaching education activity was performed to improve the engineering education system. Strategies that relate to student experiences and engage their interests can be difficult to glean and execute in a short duration. The introduction of a demo-based learning method reduces complexity and time frame to complete for students. Initially, the prototype was developed using a 3D printer and it is used to explain the mobile robot concepts through peer teaching techniques to undergraduate students. The activity results were used to study the peer teaching impact among the student's group through weighted average and correlation coefficient method. Through demo assignments and assessment the results justify the improvement of students self-confidence, interest towards the course, perspective thinking, student to student interaction and teamwork.
