If you work in education, you’ve probably spent much of the last 18 months or so grappling with AI and its ramifications in the classroom. While some instructors have attempted to ban the use of generative AI tools, many are seeking productive ways to bring AI into the mix and help students use it responsibly to enhance their learning experiences and critical thinking skills.

Looking for inspiration? Come to COLTT, the Colorado Learning and Teaching with Technology conference, hosted by the University of Colorado Boulder each summer. Since 1998, educators, administrators, and instructional designers who work in higher ed from around the state and beyond have gathered for workshops, panel discussions, and presentations on pedagogical innovations using the latest technologies.

This year’s main conference day on August 1 includes 26 sessions, with 10 of them focusing specifically on AI. This means that attendees can spend the entire day going from AI session to AI session. Additionally, there's the AI-inspired keynote presentation, “There Should Have Been Hoverboards. We Got AI Instead” by Dr. Deborah Keyek-Franssen, Associate Vice President and Dean of University Connected Learning at the University of Utah.

This will be something of a homecoming for Keyek-Franssen, who was CU's Associate Vice President for Digital Education and Engagement earlier in her career. Additionally, from 2007 to 2020, she was the executive director of the COLTT conference. Based on Keyek-Franssen’s creative approach to conference design, her presentation will be a must-see!

Note that the pre-conference events on July 31 will include two AI-focused workshops to choose from.
