Humans and Machines: Collaborative learning in the Age of AI
Was held on the 3rd May 2023, at the Valletta Design Cluster
We are in the middle of a hype cycle on Generative Artificial Intelligence. If you happen to be in the education sector or have an interest in the future of the labour market – polarised and dystopian views are very much in vogue.
On 3rd May 2003, the 3CL hosted a pragmatic workshop to dispel some myths and explore opportunities for collaborative learning.
The discussion was facilitated by Learning Science Practitioner Dr Emma Pauncefort with the participation of Dr Vanessa Camilleri, Prof Joshua Ellul, Dr Gege Gatt and Ms Marisa Xuereb.
The workshop discussion revolved around the ethics of creation and the ethics of consumption. Our point of departure was the premise that human agency is behind every action and direction an AI tool takes.
The workshop focused on three interconnected strands:
- Education: What kind of curricula do we need?
- Labour market: How will AI impact jobs and the nature of work?
- Research, development and regulation: Are we developing too fast with too little understanding?
In the final part of the workshop, the audience was invited to contribute ideas for tangible actions to help the education sector and the labour market navigate this evolving landscape.
