Humanities in Class: Webinar Series

Teaching Artificial Intelligence: Exploring New Frontiers for Learning

Lead Scholar: Michelle Zimmerman (Executive Director, Renton Prep, Renton Washington)

April 7, 2021

For many, artificial intelligence, or AI, may seem like a new and possibly overwhelming concept. The reality is that AI is already being applied in industry and, for many of us, in our daily lives as well. A better understanding of AI can help you make informed decisions now that will impact the future of your learners. This webinar will feature perspectives from educators and industry experts on how they are using AI; approaches to teaching about AI, including design thinking, project-based learning and interdisciplinary connections; tools for exploring AI and sharing it with your students; and activities to introduce AI concepts, reflection questions and lesson ideas. Most importantly, we will discuss how the humanities can provide a critical lens to the use of AI in teaching and learning.
