About the clinic

To complement our AI literacy sessions, we are running a series of monthly practical drop-in clinics.

The idea is that you can simply drop in and ask questions about how to use AI tools and anything about the AI literacy training and future training needs.

We will be running the drop-in clinics at the start of each month. The session will be live online and based on how to use artificial intelligence in education.

Questions may include:

  • Where do I start with AI?
  • What can I use AI for?
  • What do I need to be aware of when using AI?
  • How can I use AI responsibly?
  • How do I summarise pdfs using Microsoft Copilot?
  • Can I combine two PowerPoints into one using generative AI?

What we cover

The clinic is discussion-based and relies on participation, you will get answers based on AI and how to utilise it in education either during the session or the team will follow up after the session.

During the session you can:

  • Learn more about AI and the challenges and opportunities it presents
  • Look at how to use AI tools

Who should attend?

Anyone from a Jisc member organisation (UK further education colleges, specialist colleges or higher education institutions).

Further information

We also run two AI community groups if you are interested where you have the opportunity to share your own ideas and experiences of AI in education and connect with other community members.

The session will be led by Paddy Shepperd, our senior AI specialist, part of our AI team and with further input from other colleagues in our artificial intelligence team.

This is also a session for discussion and ideas sharing as AI is such a divisive and emerging area where there are not necessarily clear solutions or consensus yet.
