AI has the potential to transform educational outcomes, and improve the wellbeing and life chances of students. Adaptive platforms could personalise learning based on individuals’ needs. Innovations in assessment could enable students’ abilities to be understood in a more granular, accurate and reliable way. And administrative tools could make institutions more efficient and productive, supporting them to provide a high-quality, value-for-money service to all students.
The National Centre for AI in tertiary education has been established to help members unlock this potential. The Centre will run pilots and conduct experiments in order to ascertain which products and services best meet the needs of the sector.
The Centre has also established a community, which will be a place where members – from absolute AI beginners to trailblazing innovators - can learn from each other by sharing insights into best practices, challenges and opportunities, what has and hasn’t worked, and what questions to ask.
The Centre will arrange regular meetups and will also inform its members through though leadership pieces and newsletters.
If this interests you, please join us for an informal meetup virtually on Tuesday 27 July. We will start by giving you a brief update on the Centre’s progress, and will then lead an informal discussion, which will focus on your priorities and concerns for the use of AI in education.
Who should attend
Artificial intelligence and its applications are relevant to all stakeholders throughout the further and higher education sectors. Educators, researchers, managers, technical specialists, pastoral staff and many other professionals will all have an impact on how students benefit from AI in education; as such, this event is open to any Jisc member.
This event, and subsequent activities of the National Centre for AI community will be of use to those who are pioneering the use of AI, those who feel in the dark and want to learn more about AI in education, and everyone in between.
Booking has now closed.
