Generative AI presents both opportunities and challenges for education. In this webinar for educators, we aim to equip you with the insights and strategies needed to navigate this evolving landscape. We focus on instructional strategies to harness the benefits of AI while also nurturing the unique abilities of humans to tackle global challenges in the 21st century.

This webinar will help you to:

  • Demystify AI: Understand the capabilities and limitations of generative AI. Distinguish human intelligence from AI via analogies and illustrations.
  • Re-envision education: Embark on a paradigm shift, moving away from a product-focused approach to a process-focused model of education. Embrace the transformative power of the learning process and move beyond transactions where “learning products” are exchanged for grades.
  • Address concerns about plagiarism: Examine the decline of curiosity and intrinsic motivation in traditional education systems, and advocate for next-generation models of education that foster an ecosystem of motivation and learning.
  • Maximize educators’ impact: Explore the crucial role educators play in the AI-enhanced learning landscape. Discover concrete strategies to demystify AI, promote the learning process, honour learner agency and cultivate human skills that AI can’t replicate.
