ADCET Webinar: Opportunities for supporting diverse learners through generative AI

Thu 25 Jul 2024 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm AEST


Event details

ADCET is excited to present our latest webinar on AI. The emergence of ChatGPT thrust Artificial Intelligence into the spotlight, catching many off guard, particularly in education. While initial reactions focused on academic integrity concerns, generative AI presents numerous possibilities for engaging and empowering learners with diverse needs.

Join Darren, Elizabeth, and Joe, co-hosts of the ADCET podcast ILOTA Things (Inclusive Learning Opportunities Through AI), as they showcase practical applications of current AI technologies. This webinar will demonstrate how generative AI can enhance Universal Design for Learning approaches, equipping educational designers and educators with tools to create more inclusive learning environments. They will explore how students with diverse needs can leverage these tools and engage with their learning in new and exciting ways, opening a world of possibilities for personalised and empowering educational experiences.

Audience: Academics, DLOs, Educational Designers/Developers
