You’re invited to the first nationwide conference of practitioners to discuss the use and potential impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on teaching and learning in higher education.

The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning and the Division of Digital Learning at the University of Central Florida have partnered to create a new event that brings together educational practitioners in colleges and universities from around the country.

The world of AI is changing rapidly, and as professionals working in Higher Ed, we know its impact can be both positive and negative.

That’s why we’re launching the Teaching & Learning with AI conference to discuss how to use AI tools in the classroom effectively. By joining this conversation, you can help control the trajectory of this new medium as it impacts both our teaching and our students’ learning.

An Artificial Intelligence Conference for Higher Education Practitioners


who is the teaching & learning with AI conference for?

Teaching & Learning with AI is designed for instructors, higher education professionals, researchers, and policymakers who are interested in exploring the potential of AI in higher ed classrooms. If you want to learn more about how you can leverage AI to improve learning outcomes, research, and operations, then this is a must-attend event.

This conference is for faculty, staff who support faculty, and administrators who are on the front lines of teaching. Your voices are needed to shape the future of using AI in teaching and learning.

There are different ways to leverage the power of AI through generated text, images, and products.

And if you work with students, it’s important to understand and discuss how to use these tools to shape the future of teaching and learning across college campuses.

We’ll be bringing together a diverse group of experts and thought leaders who will share their insights, ideas, and experiences with using AI in their courses and beyond.

Here you’ll be able to explore and learn about the latest trends in AI and its potential impact on higher education. You’ll leave this conference with transferable skills and practical tips that you can implement immediately into your courses or at your institution.

How is this ai conference different from others?

There are plenty of other conferences surrounding the discussion of AI in higher education. But those conferences spotlight the technical development of artificial intelligence or the use of AI on the back end to improve student outcomes.

This conference specifically focuses on the use of AI in the classroom as experienced by faculty members.

You’ll be able to hear ideas, and contribute your own, to topics like instructional strategies, faculty support, academic integrity, policy, and ethical considerations.

ai is disrupting higher education: what can/should we do about it?

Whether you’re a teaching faculty member, educational developer, instructional designer, instructional technologist, or administrator, the role that AI will play in the future of higher education is sure to affect you.

You know that students and faculty across the country are embracing its power to both embolden and disrupt the status quo. How you handle it as an educator can prove difficult. That’s why it’s imperative to connect with one another and have frank conversations about harnessing the power of AI to improve faculty and student success.

The conference will allow discussion for the myriad of ways AI impacts teaching and learning methods in the following tracks:

  • Pedagogical Approaches to Incorporate AI in Teaching and Learning
  • Digital Learning and Online Instruction
  • Supporting Faculty
  • Academic Integrity
  • Instructional Design
  • Assessment and Evaluation Methods
  • Teaching Models
  • AI Applications in the Classroom Besides ChatGPT
  • Student Success and Retention
  • Administrative Tasks, e.g., scheduling, enrollment management
  • Student Conduct and Behavior Management
  • Ethical Considerations of AI Usage
  • Institutional Policies and Regulations
