The Big Reset: Adapting to a New Educational Landscape

Date Friday, Nov 24  Time   –   

In our ever-evolving technological landscape, recent advancements, especially in conversational and generative AI, are on the brink of catalysing a profound transformation in the realm of education and student assessment. These developments challenge the traditional educational paradigm, shifting the spotlight from educators to learners. The question arises: can we do anything other than wholeheartedly embrace these changes? What novel opportunities emerge to enhance the design of teaching and learning?
 
Join us in this thought-provoking plenary session as we delve into the transformative impact of emerging technology on the education landscape. As we stand on the precipice of a world where machines will increasingly perform tasks previously undertaken by humans, we must contemplate the essence of learning itself. Does learning still hold relevance and promise in this brave new world? We'll also explore the critical question: In a world where skills for jobs that may soon be exerted by machines, what role is left for human learning?

Together, let's explore what sets us apart from machines and chart a course towards a reimagined future for education.
