About the Joint Conference on AI and Education

The “Leveraging AI For Change in Education” conference is the first of an annual joint-university initiative between the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) aimed at exploring the profound impacts and possibilities of artificial intelligence in educational settings, from K-12 and higher education to vocational training and adult learning. As AI technologies continue to advance at an unprecedented rate, it’s crucial for educational approaches and research to keep pace. This means not only integrating AI into current pedagogical frameworks but also evolving our research methodologies to understand and leverage AI’s impact on learning outcomes, assessment tools, curriculum development, and students’ well-being. This conference aims to facilitate interdisciplinary discussions by uniting educators, researchers, policymakers, and technologists to explore key themes such as Personalized Learning, Assessment and Feedback, Learning/Predictive Analytics, Human-AI Collaboration, Ethical Issues, and AI Literacy.

Understanding the symbiotic relationship between AI and humans and how that impacts teaching and learning is not just an academic exercise; it’s a necessity that has direct implications for the future of work, education, and societal well-being. As we navigate the complexities of the AI era, this conference aims to foster a community committed to exploring and sharing evidence-based, ethically sound, and accessible AI-driven educational strategies. Our goal is to help attendees become informed about the dynamic implications AI will have on education so they can adapt to changing educational needs. To support this, we’ve invited international experts in AI and education who will share evidence-based strategies and insights, enriching the conference’s scope and enhancing its relevance to global educational trends. We invite you to join us in this important dialogue to shape the future of education in an AI-driven world.

16:15–17:30 Open Forum - The Classroom of the Future: Realities, Potentials, and Ethical Considerations of AI-Enhanced Education

This forum is dedicated to exploring the transformative landscape of future classrooms by examining how generative artificial intelligence is revolutionizing established educational paradigms and learning methods. As we await the full scope of AI's disruptive potential, this event serves as a critical gathering point for stakeholders from all educational settings—from higher education to K-12 and from teachers to policymakers. Attendees will engage in vital discussions about classroom futures, covering a range of topics from AI literacy and human-AI collaboration to ethical issues and corporate impact

Focus of the Forum:

  • AI Literacy and Readiness: Equipping teachers and students in higher education and K-12 for a future infused with AI technologies.
  • Human-AI Collaboration: Investigating the opportunities and complexities of combining human cognition with machine intelligence.
  • Metacognitive Awareness: Exploring how AI may facilitate deeper self-awareness during self-regulated learning activities.
  • Ethical Considerations: What educators need to know about the ethical implications of implementing AI tools in the classroom.
  • Corporate Influence: Examining tech companies' roles and responsibilities in the development and deployment of AI in educational settings.

Abstract: Talent development is the primary mission of a university. Specific to the training of students, the goal of a university education is to lay the foundation for a graduate's first job and his or her lifelong career development. The former requires graduates with unique professional strengths, while the latter requires graduates with a range of transferable skills to cope with changes in the workplace. In an era of disruptive technology explosion, where we face a complex and uncertain world, having these transferable skills is the cornerstone of a graduate's lifelong career success. Thus, one of the challenges facing university education is how to achieve both goals in a very limited time frame. Over the past few decades, many universities around the world, including HKUST, have made many efforts to meet this challenge. The establishment of HKUST (GZ) marks a new step toward this goal. At the new campus, we will leverage our unique academic hub structure to transform the pedagogy of talent development and strive to enable students to acquire both specialized knowledge and transferable skills while at university. This presentation will share with you the innovative training model of the Redbird MPhil (RBM) Program, as well as the design and practical options for the future undergraduate training program of HKUST(GZ), and we look forward to receiving constructive comments from HKUST academic community.
