Exploring Artificial Intelligence in the classroom
The Sheridan Community Connections Committee – a collective of colleagues that aims to create opportunities for cross-disciplinary faculty dialogue and engagement – kicked off the winter semester by hosting an Artificial Intelligence Symposium on January 4 at the Hazel McCallion Campus in Mississauga. Over 100 faculty members and staff registered to attend this exciting and informative event focused on Artificial Intelligence and Signature Learning Experiences in the classroom.
The half-day event featured speakers who are subject matter experts on topics focused on artificial intelligence, including AI in teaching and learning, AI and Career Integrated Learning, AI in research, and Consumptive AI to support the digital student experience. Three breakout workshops throughout the session also focused on artificial intelligence, including a Curriculum Clinic where faculty had the opportunity to come with their course outlines and assessment protocols and workshop how to leverage AI and how to mitigate the misuse of AI.
The event also offered a marketplace with information on signature learning experiences and how to bring these new practices into the classroom, including Collaborative Online Integrated Learning (COIL), Interdisciplinary Problem-Based Learning, AR/VR and sustainability.
Faculty members enjoyed the opportunity to socialize and network with their colleagues over refreshments before the start of the term.
