AI generativa, Digital Education e strategie di collaborazione accademica

Sam Nolan (Durham University UK – Direttore del Centro “Academic Development”) – Plenary Speaker al Simposio ISYDE 2024

 

Nell’ambito della conferenza tenutasi dal 19 al 21 giugno 2024 (ISYDE – Italian Symposium on Digital Education), Sam Nolan, docente presso la University of Durham e direttore del Centro per lo Sviluppo Accademico (DCAD), si è espresso in merito ai temi più importanti che investiranno il settore del lifelong learning, in particolare sulla generazione di contenuti con Intelligenza Artificiale e l’impatto che avrà tutto questo sugli studenti e gli ambienti accademici.

“With the advent of generative AI” afferma Nolan “we begin to think fundamentally about what we do as teachers and as researchers, and we have to think through the implications, not just the initial worries and concerns about student work, and whether the students have produced their own work, but actually thinking about how we prepare students for work, for employment.”
Un ruolo importante sarà svolto dalla collaborazione tra le diverse realtà europee per quanto concerne lo scambio di conoscenze, professionalità e strategie educative:
“I think there’s a great space for collaboration across Europe to bring together expertise from different universities to share and understand what this challenging time is, because we’re all going through this journey together.”

Sam Nolan (Durham University UK – Director of the Centre for Academic Development) – Plenary Speaker at ISYDE 2024 Symposium.

 

At the conference held from June 19 to 21, 2024 (ISYDE – Italian Symposium of Digital Education), Sam Nolan, a lecturer at the University of Durham and director of the Center for Academic Development (DCAD), spoke about the most important issues that will affect the lifelong learning sector, particularly the generation of content with Artificial Intelligence and the impact that this will have on students and academic environments.
“With the advent of generative AI” Nolan states “we begin to think fundamentally about what we do as teachers and as researchers, and we have to think through the implications, not just the initial worries and concerns about student work, and whether the students have produced their own work, but actually thinking about how we we prepare students for work, for employment.”
An important role will be played, following Sam Nolan, by the collaboration between different European entities regarding the exchange of knowledge, expertise, and educational strategies.
“I think there’s a great space for collaboration across Europe to bring together expertise from different universities to share and understand what this challenging time is, because we’re all going through this journey together.”
