The use of chatbots like ChatGPT in education raises questions about their effect on teaching and learning, especially in terms of integrating them effectively.

In this session, Jérôme Brender, PhD student at the Mobile Robotic Systems Group (MOBOTS), will present his research which delves into the impact of ChatGPT on student performance and learning within a graduate-level robotics course, analyzing data from 64 students (40 who used ChatGPT and 24 who did not).

He will go over his findings and the three distinct behaviors that emerged, namely, the "debuggers", the "conceptual explorers" and the "practical developers".
