Abstract

This paper introduces the efforts of Michigan State University’s Counseling, Educational Psychology, and Special Education/College of Education (CEPSE/COE) Design Studio to utilize robotic telepresence devices in synchronous hybrid learning classes for the Educational Psychology and Educational Technology (EPET ) Ph.D. program. Robotic telepresence devices are digital devices that can be piloted from a distance for the purpose of interacting with people in a remote location. Synchronous hybrid learning classes refer to classes in which online and face-to-face students interact during shared synchronous sessions. This design case describes the context, technologies, and strategies used to integrate robotic telepresence devices in a synchronous hybrid learning class format. We conclude by discussing our insights gleaned from our existing designs for student telepresence in synchronous hybrid learning contexts.
