HKUST x EdUHK Joint Conference on AI Education
About the Conference
The “Leveraging AI For Change in Education” conference is the first of an annual joint-university initiative between the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) aimed at exploring the profound impacts and possibilities of artificial intelligence in educational settings, from K-12 and higher education to vocational training and adult learning. As AI technologies continue to advance at an unprecedented rate, it’s crucial for educational approaches and research to keep pace. This means not only integrating AI into current pedagogical frameworks but also evolving our research methodologies to understand and leverage AI’s impact on learning outcomes, assessment tools, curriculum development, and students’ well-being. This conference aims to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions by uniting educators, researchers, policymakers, and technologists to explore key themes such as Personalized Learning, Assessment and Feedback, Learning/Predictive Analytics, Human-AI Collaboration, Ethical Issues, and AI Literacy.
Understanding the symbiotic relationship between AI and humans and how that impacts teaching and learning is not just an academic exercise; it’s a necessity that has direct implications for the future of work, education, and societal well-being. As we navigate the complexities of the AI era, this conference aims to foster a community committed to exploring and sharing evidence-based, ethically sound, and accessible AI-driven educational strategies. Our goal is to help attendees become informed about the dynamic implications AI will have on education so they can adapt to changing educational needs. To support this, we’ve invited international experts in AI and education who will share evidence-based strategies and insights, enriching the conference’s scope and enhancing its relevance to global educational trends. We invite you to join us in this important dialogue to shape the future of education in an AI-driven world.
