GeCon 2024 – Keynote Session “Enhancing Education with ChatGPT and Human”

August 5 @ 8:00 - August 7 @ 17:00 CEST

GECon 2024 announces the Keynote Session with the topic “Enhancing Education with ChatGPT and Human”

Rapidly emerging AI technologies are transforming educators’ roles. AI tools already aid in creating engaging materials and facilitating self-study, and the future points towards personalized learning experiences tailored to individual needs. Yet, the recent reshaping of the educational landscape reminds us of the irreplaceable value of human interaction. Skills like communication, collaboration, and hands-on exploration remain central, areas where AI falls short. In this keynote, we delve into the integration of traditional teaching methods with AI, especially generative chatbots, while mindful of ethical considerations. This fusion aims to prepare educators and students for a rapidly evolving educational environment. Such a strategy not only prepares students for a future deeply intertwined with AI but also ensures they are both technically savvy and ethically aware.

Dr. Leah Sharp is an Instructional Designer with a background in physics and a PhD in Theoretical Chemistry from the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Now at the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning, she trains professors on didactics and pedagogy, with an emphasis on educational technology. She is currently involved in a project that trains tutors to utilize AI to enhance teaching methods at Bavarian higher education institutions. This initiative focuses on the practical implementation of AI tools to improve educational outcomes.
