ALT East England - This house believes that Education has control of the technology, policy and processes being used.

 Registration is closed for this event

Join the online debate organised by ALT East England (ALT EE) and the Jisc National Centre for Artificial Intelligence.

The event will pitch two teams, each with a mixture of staff and students against each other. They will compare how we evaluate technology to provide a viable staff and student experience - i.e. to be selective about technology in terms of its usefulness, rather than feeling as though our services are dictated by it.

Naturally, this debate will be held in the light of increasing awareness of the power of AI-driven systems and their impact on our lives and work within the Education sector. 

Please join this free event, hear the debate, contribute your own views and vote on the eventual conclusion. 

Event format

Each team will state their arguments FOR or AGAINST. The moderator (Jisc National Centre for AI representative) will then ask specific questions, and each team will respond. Following this, we will open out to questions and discussion.
