EODLW 2023 – “AI and the Future of Adult Education and VET” – Monday, November 6, 11:00 (CET)
November 6 @ 11:00 – 12:30
The transformative power of Artificial Intelligence (AI) spans across different sectors, including education. A high performing digital education ecosystem will increasingly include the use of AI at all levels including for teaching and learning. For Adult Education and VET teachers and trainers there are many possible uses of AI including new opportunities for adapting learning content based on student’s needs, new processes for assessment, analysing possible bottlenecks in learners’ domain understanding and improvement in guidance for learners. Since increasing our knowledge and understanding of emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its ethical educational deployment becomes more and more important, experts and researchers will share insights and results (in relation to the AIPioneers project) regarding the issues of capacity, both systemic and institutional, through working with teachers and trainers, educational planners, stakeholders, and policy makers in Adult Education and VET.
