A new way of learning for a new generation
The Epistemic Insight Future of Knowledge Initiative at Canterbury Christ Church University is reimagining how we teach students, learn and use knowledge to change the world.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming our lives in in a way even science fiction writers couldn’t predict.
This month Canterbury Christ Church University will be hosting an exciting afternoon exploring the captivating world of AI.
The event on Thursday 14 September celebrates the launch of the University’s educative approach to AI. It will offer an afternoon of activities, talks and demonstrations that will exhibit the myriad of uses of AI currently being practiced within our industries and society, as well its future potential. University staff and students will also share their experiences with AI and showcase how AI is being integrated into their research and studies.
Attendees can also find out more about short courses and workshops looking at how AI chatbots can be used positively to support work projects and study skills.
Dr Ali Eyden, Dean of Learning and Teaching, said: “Artificial intelligence is now present in our lives and it takes a multidisciplinary perspective to consider its impacts - on education, careers, hobbies and families. This year we’re excited to launch our new learning, teaching and assessment strategy that has a key focus on the educative use of AI, and the embedding of transdisciplinary approaches that ensure we are developing empowered graduates ready to solve global challenges.”
Later in the afternoon Professors Alison Honour (DVC) and Berry Billingsley (Future of Knowledge) will co-present an open lecture with input from help of an expert panel that examines what is the future of universities and the future of AI.
Professor Billingsley, said: “When you are in a university you catch glimpses of the thousands of different ways that GenAI is interacting with our lives. I’m looking forward sharing what we’re doing while also discovering what other people are thinking and asking."
Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to explore the world of AI and learn from experts in the field.
