What Is The Session About?

In today's rapidly changing world, using Generative AI such as ChatGPT is fast becoming an essential skill for trainers and instructional designers. Not only can it help them create more effective and engaging learning experiences, but it can also help them stay ahead of the competition. Professionals in this field without these competencies may find themselves falling behind and at a disadvantage.

Generative AI has the potential to revolutionise the way instructional designers create and deliver learning experiences.This course is intended to help trainers and learning designers develop the skills and knowledge they need to use generative AI in their work, and make more informed decisions about when and how to use generative AI in their learning design. Participants will learn about the current developments in generative AI, the challenges and limitations, as well as best practices for using AI to augment the range of processes related to training, such as conducting needs analysis, designing course outlines, developing learning activities, content, assessments, and evaluations.

Less talk, more action! The emphasis of the course in on an immersive hands-on practice, specially contextualised for training and adult education (TAE) to engage participants in group projects, discussions, and hands-on practice to develop the skills required to effectively use generative AI, such as ChatGPT, to develop more interesting and relevant learning experiences for their professional practice.

By the end of this course, participants will create their own quizzes, role plays, and case studies using generative AI, which they can use as examples for future reference.
