For lecturers and teaching staff
For all TU Delft teaching staff involved with AI education, we are introducing a repository of shared open educational resources designed to make it easier to use each other’s materials. A new learning community is the goal, and a teach-the-teacher programme is being established. This will support teaching staff in their own development, understanding the role of AI in their own domain, and ways to support students with AI.
A series of articles in the Educator newsletter from TU Delft Teaching Academy informs teachers and other staff members about developments surrounding AI and AI-related techniques at TU Delft – and their impact on education. You can find the earlier published articles below.
Are you a TU Delft staff member interested in being involved in the activities being developed in the AI education portfolio? Contact Susanne van Aardenne.
April – AI is on its way
What are the implications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for your role as a lecturer? In this and coming Educator newsletters you will see developments surrounding AI and AI-related techniques. Many questions around preparing students for AI in their own area of expertise will be addressed. For example, ‘What knowledge is needed for applications of AI in your research field?’, ‘How do we connect fundamental AI and AI applications, and how does this affect education?’, and ‘What is – or can be – the role of AI technologies in and for education?’. If you want to learn more about AI, just join Elements of AI (a free online introduction to AI for non-experts) or AI in Practice (AI courses for professionals).
May – How can we prepare students for the ethical and social impact of AI?
In the previous Educator, we showed how Artificial Intelligence (AI) affects education at TU Delft. Even in fields of interest where AI doesn’t play a big role on the surface, it makes an impact on a daily basis. This article shows how we can prepare students for the ethical role of AI in their field of expertise: what challenges are awaiting them, and how can we introduce them to these challenges? We asked dr. Olya Kudina (Assistant Professor in Ethics/Philosophy of Technology at the faculty of Technology, Policy and Management) about her ideas on how to guide students in understanding and becoming familiar with the ethical sides of AI, and about the importance of the TU Delft minor Engineering for AI.
June – AI in education – the possibilities are promising
In this Educator we look back at June as the 'Month of AI in Education', proclaimed by the SURF Special Interest Group AI in Education; the Acceleration Plan; and the Dutch AI Coalition education working group. You can find out, for example, what to do with AI in education and what ethical considerations you must deal with. ‘AI in Education’ attempts to change and improve the educational process. It looks at AI applications and how they can be used to support students and lecturers.
