BCOEL – Planes, trains, and generative AI: Recentering open education values in new technology adoption

This event is supported in part by BCcampus in celebration of Open Education Week 2024. Learn more about our Open Education Week Funding.

Many educators have felt pressure to climb aboard the generative AI train since it came barreling down the tracks. But what happens when we leap into new technologies without first pausing to imagine harms, such as surveillance, bias, and discrimination? Join host Brenna Clarke Gray and guest speaker Autumm Caines for a conversation about the pedagogical implications of generative AI. Can recentering the core values of the open education movement—equity, inclusion, transparency, and social justice—in our pedagogy help us move forward in a good way? How do we introduce these considerations to our students and empower them to make informed decisions with new technologies? We’ll consider these questions and more in our hour together.

This event celebrates Open Education Week (March 4-8, 2024). It is organized by the BC Open Education Librarians group (BCOEL) and generously sponsored by BCcampus, with additional support from Kwanlten Polytechnic University, snəw̓eyəɬ leləm̓ – Langara College, and University Canada West.
