Amid an era characterized by staggering technological advancements that persistently evolve our educational landscape, this workshop can be viewed as a valuable guide and resource for educators and educationists, as it will equip them with the requisite understanding to effectively wield the transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) within the ever-evolving realm of education. It caters to a broad audience, from technologically adept individuals to those on the cusp of their AI exploration, offering valuable insights and practical approaches.

Participants will be engaged with various AI tools, each with unique potential to challenge and reshape conventional teaching and learning (T&L) paradigms. With expert guidance, they will develop more profound insights into creating and delivering AI-enhanced learning designs to augment content delivery, stimulate learner engagement, and encourage critical thinking capabilities. Additionally, it will delve into the ethical considerations accompanying AI integration in education to endow participants with the awareness to utilize such tools responsibly.

The session is designed for a broad audience, inviting anyone interested in employing AI in their T&L practice, irrespective of their prior AI knowledge, experience, or expertise. However, they must bring their personal computers for the hands-on activities, while all necessary AI software and tools will be provided during the session.
