The AI Frontier

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made a remarkable entry into education, leaving educators with a mix of emotions. In this course we’ll help you navigate this new frontier by looking at different types of AI and how they’re used, the ethical challenges and dilemmas of AI in education, how AI changes teaching and learning, and how you can design activities and assessments with AI in mind.  By the end of the course, participants will be equipped with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions about how AI fits, or doesn’t fit, into their teaching practice.
