"AI in the English Language Classroom" Workshop

With so much information coming out so quickly about Artificial Intelligence (AI), many teachers have found that they’ve read more about AI than they have spent time exploring it. With the potential to save you time when creating classroom materials and lesson plans and to improve outcomes for your multilingual learners of English, now is the time to get started with AI. The “AI in the English Language Classroom” workshop is designed to help kickstart your journey into using tools like ChatGPT, Bing, Bard, Midjourney, or any of the myriad tools that seem to be popping up every day. After learning more general strategies for using AI tools in the classroom, you’ll have ample time to test out the tools and exchange ideas with your peers about how best to apply them to your teaching context.

Led by an expert in the field, this highly interactive and participant-centered workshop will equip you with a starter kit of knowledge and tools to explore AI in your learning spaces to benefit you and your learners. This live online workshop is 7.5 hours total, taking place 19-23 February 2024 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. ET each day.

All sessions will be recorded and available on the TESOL Canvas platform for participants for a month following the workshop.

Once you complete the workshop, you'll receive a digital badge you can share online! An electronic certificate of completion can be provided upon request.

Register by 16 February 2024. It’s going to be a blast, and we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
