Generative AI: Promt engineering - good prompts for studying and teaching
Katja Zemlin und Anna-Maria Bayer (Greifswald)

Prompt engineering is the process of formulating a prompt for an AI system so that it produces an output that closely matches your expectations. A well-formulated prompt is crucial to obtain relevant and useful results. The workshop is about different strategies and techniques to formulate effective prompts for different teaching and learning scenarios. We will try out how to promt effectifly. 

The specialized class is for teachers who are interested in integrating generative AI into their classes and teaching practice.

Catchbox and AI-Cam: Hybrid - International - Professional Organizing for Co-Operations in Teaching 
Niklas Washausen (Greifswald)

Hybrid teaching has been proposed to be tomorrow's form of teaching for at least since the pandemic, though it has been met with some scepticsm: advanced technical know-how, additional preparation time, affordability & sustainability,...

In this workshop such worries shall be practically dispelled by testing low-threshold equipment in the form of the Catchbox audio system as well as the INSTA360 Link A.I. powered Webcam. Devices such as these allow for the easy establishment of international/-cultural projects that can involve larger learner groups across continents or analog audiences after digital presentations. Conversely physical presentations become authentically dynamic with tracking, zoom and whiteboard functions integrated into one webcam.

Throughout the workshop we shall discuss (your) possible user scenarios, potentials and the future of hybrid teaching in an international and school-related context!

Exploring GenAI and Its Impact on Teaching, Learning and Assessment
Prof. Leonard Busuttil (Valetta)

In this workshop, we will explore the world of Generative AI (GenAI) and its relevance in education. We will begin with a brief overview of how Large Language Models (LLMs) work, followed by a practical hands-on session using ChatGPT. The workshop will conclude with a discussion on the implications of these models for teaching, learning, and assessment. Join us to examine the potential and challenges GenAI poses in educational contexts.

HumAnIzing the EducAtIonal Experience: AI-Driven Solutions in Higher Education

Dr. Jeramy Donovan & Dr. Sapna Thwaite (Flint, Michigan)

This interactive session will highlight ethical considerations, including potential bias in AI, showcase real-world applications, and equip educators with tools to implement AI-driven solutions in their classrooms. Attendees will experience firsthand how AI can humanize the educational experience and foster a more supportive, responsive learning environment.

Our interactive activity will involve guiding the attendees in the process of creating a chatbot that gives personalized responses that they could use in their own classroom. We may provide them scenarios involving hypothetical students with questions they could type into their newly created chatbot to see how the chatbots respond to the hypothetical student.
