Hello, faculty!

In our newsletter this week we are focusing on introducing the potential of leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Higher Education, integrating AI-powered tools into teaching methods, and examples of fostering a culture of technological literacy in the classroom. Next week we will focus on the implementation of AI technology in higher education teaching. Ultimately by doing so, educators can harness the power of AI to enhance the learning experience and better prepare their students for the challenges of the 21st century.
