Symposium themes

We are interested in focusing on the human and the machine and therefore pose the following questions: 

  • How can we align the use of AI with the core values, objectives, and standards of higher education?
  • What are the challenges of designing and implementing policy and regulations in the AI space?
  • What specific EDI challenges and opportunities does AI provide?
  • How do we ensure that inequity in student and staff usage of AI is not embedded in HEIs? 
  • What measures can be taken to harmonise AI's advantages with its potential risks and challenges in addressing challenges such as student engagement and belonging? 
  • How can we cultivate a responsible and inclusive AI usage culture amongst staff in the educational sector?
  • How can AI be leveraged to make impactful advancements in teaching and learning methodologies in this diverse cultural landscape?
A comprehensive, insightful programme with plenty of opportunity to liaise with colleagues and share experiences with AI in Learning, teaching and Assessment and addresses fundamental questions in terms of equality and inclusivity as we move forward into an AI-enabled future in HE."
