  • Join Your Colleagues for the 2024 Educause Teaching & Learning Symposium (Online Event)

    Dear Colleagues,

    I am excited to announce the 2024 EDUCAUSE Teaching and Learning Symposium, which will bring together our community of higher education teaching and learning professionals for an immersive and engaging online conference of shared learning and storytelling on June 12.

    With a theme of “Balancing Humanity and Technology: AI in the Classroom,” the symposium will feature inspiring plenary sessions, collaborative design sessions, and playful networking as we apply our collective human intelligence to understanding the transformative potential—and accompanying risks—of AI in the higher education classroom.

    Join your teaching and learning colleagues as we explore questions like:

    • How can AI create capacity in the design and delivery of instruction and assessment?

    • What innovative assessment and teaching strategies leverage AI and lead to the advancement of critical and creative thinking skills?

    • How do data and digital literacy play a role in the ethics of AI in the classroom?

    • And many more.

    Even better, you’ll come away from the symposium with plans for action that you can pilot on your campus related to AI in the classroom. 

    Register today to reserve your virtual seat!
