Webinar Description

Dive into the future of geoscience education with our interactive webinar, "Geoscience Teaching & Learning in the Time of AI." Work with AI techniques aimed at boosting student engagement, deepening understanding, and unleashing creativity in your classroom.

We'll explore practical tools and strategies to get started, even if you're new to AI. Through a brief theoretical introduction and a compelling rationale for AI integration, you'll gain a clear vision of its potential in your classroom.

Then, get ready to roll up your sleeves! In our hands-on breakout sessions, you'll tackle three engaging challenges:

  • Master the art of prompt engineering: Learn how to craft powerful prompts to generate instructional ideas that will guide students toward deeper exploration.
  • Become a rubric architect: Use AI to design effective rubrics that provide students with clear assignment details and expectations.
  • Students like Kahoot? Try Curipod! Generate effective formative assessments through gamification and other techniques using Curipod, which provides individualized feedback.

Leave this webinar with a compiled and crowdsourced AI resource document that will empower you to further explore the capabilities of the exciting world of AI-enabled geoscience education.
