Teaching in the age of AI
​​​​​​Enhancing Education with ChatGPT and Human
​​​​

ABSTRACT: Rapidly emerging AI technologies are transforming educators' roles. AI tools already aid in creating engaging materials and facilitating self-study, and the future points towards personalized learning experiences tailored to individual needs. Yet, the recent reshaping of the educational landscape reminds us of the irreplaceable value of human interaction. Skills like communication, collaboration, and hands-on exploration remain central, areas where AI falls short. In this keynote, we delve into the integration of traditional teaching methods with AI, especially generative chatbots, while mindful of ethical considerations. This fusion aims to prepare educators and students for a rapidly evolving educational environment. Such a strategy not only prepares students for a future deeply intertwined with AI but also ensures they are both technically savvy and ethically aware.
 

Dr. Leah Sharp is an Instructional Designer with a background in physics and a PhD in Theoretical Chemistry from the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Now at the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning, she trains professors on didactics and pedagogy, with an emphasis on educational technology. She is currently involved in a project that trains tutors to utilize AI to enhance teaching methods at Bavarian higher education institutions. This initiative focuses on the practical implementation of AI tools to improve educational outcomes.


Encouraging female careers in engineering - my personal experience and lessons learnt

 
ABSTRACT: In this talk, some experiences recently developed to make the work of female engineers visible and promote female vocations in engineering will be presented. In the field of Telecommunications, the activities carried out internationally in the Communications society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE) will be discussed, to make visible the women who work in this field, through its History and Women in Communications Engineering (WICE) committees. Also, many initiatives developed to support and promote young women that are starting their careers. In a more general area of engineering and science, the experience of “A female engineer in every school” will be shared, developed by the Association of Women Researchers and Technologists (AMIT) in Spain to promote engineering vocations in girls (and also boys) at early ages. The view of the speaker about their importance and lessons learnt while developing these initiatives will be shared.
