Explore the future of education with us – your purpose, your impact, your future. Don’t miss out on this journey while exploring the AI-powered future of education and how it can inspire you and your students.

Workshop 1: Assessments and artificial intelligence: designing tasks for academic integrity and engagement

Leon Furze is an international consultant, author, and speaker with years of experience in education and leadership. Leon is studying his PhD in the implications of Artificial Intelligence on writing instruction and education. We meet together at AISSA, and Leon will join us remotely to lead our full-day workshop.

This session will explore the implications of Generative AI (GAI) for assessment practices. Using an assessment scale which provides clarity on where AI can and cannot be used, participants will work on their own assessment tasks for individuals, groups, and practical assessments. The session will discuss the various forms of GAI, including text, image, and audio, and how to discuss assessments and academic integrity with students for tasks in these various modes. No experience of GAI is required for this session.

Workshop 2: AI, focus on ‘the why’ and ‘values’

Dr Nicholas Jackson has worked for over 23 years in education at universities and in schools. Nick has a passion for networking, sharing, researching and working with teachers, students and technology. He focuses on learners being empowered to access education in the ways that they choose and have doors open to create new pathways into learning enhanced by technology. AI offers unfathomable opportunities to disrupt education in many ways.

This workshop will look at the fundamental considerations educators at all levels must face in integrating AI into practice. It will offer insights, use cases, commentary and evidence of what can and has been achieved in different contexts.

Workshop 3: AI: Implications for Policy and Pedagogy

Tim Moore draws on a range of teaching experiences in secondary and tertiary contexts. He currently works in the literacy assessment space for the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority. ChatGPT and other models are revolutionising education. As this technology quickly becomes ubiquitous, education leaders are wrestling with its rapidly evolving capabilities and the unfolding implications. Developing cohesive, ethical, and pedagogically sound responses to these changes has become an urgent need for educators across all levels and sectors.

This session will delve into these challenges, emphasising the implications for policy and pedagogy. We will explore how generative AI is altering school-level processes and discuss the ethical integration of this technology in education.

Workshop 4: How to ensure that your educational purpose drives your use of AI in the classroom

Adrian Cotterell currently serves as the Director of Studies (ELC-12) at Emmaus Christian College. With a background in postgraduate studies focused on quality assessment design, Adrian emphasises the importance of expert teachers guiding the integration of AI technologies in curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices.

This final workshop of the series will focus on how to ensure that your educational purpose drives your use of AI in the classroom and how to use AI to help your students think deeper about what they are learning.

Don’t miss this chance to shape the future of learning and provide opportunity for students’ success in your school context.
