Frances Willson Thompson Critical Issues Conference

Generative AI in Education

March 7, 2024 | Riverfront Conference Center

Illustrated by our conference website’s AI-generated header picture, created with the power of ‘AI by Canva,’ Generative AI can be a dynamic and visionary tool that exemplifies the synergy between technology and education. It offers a compelling glimpse into a future where educators and students are not merely equipped but empowered to flourish in the face of ever-accelerating societal transformations.

Through this lens, we cordially invite you to the Frances Willson Thompson Critical Issues Conference on Generative AI. Our goal with this conference is to provide a platform to bring together visionaries, scholars and educators from around the world to critically consider the profound impact of Generative AI on education and society.

We also encourage you to submit a proposal to present at the conference. Your insights and expertise will be invaluable in shaping the discourse on how Generative AI is reshaping the educational landscape.

We look forward to your active participation and the possibility of your proposal contributing to the stimulating discussions that will shape the future of education.
