Collaborative learning is a practice that is key to REELER because our main hypothesis is that roboticists can benefit from new tools that increase their knowledge of and collaboration with 'users' and other affected stakeholders, with the intent to create responsible and ethical designs. In the project work itself, we will look into what it takes for affected stakeholders and roboticists to align their perceptions and ultimately their visions of robots.
