Overview

The Artificial Intelligence in Teaching and Learning Certificate program at Ontario Tech University is designed for educators and professionals who want to integrate artificial intelligence into educational settings. This program provides a comprehensive understanding of AI's role, ethical implications, and practical applications in education and training. Participants will gain hands-on experience through projects and case studies, equipping them with the skills to implement AI effectively in their work.


Who should attend

This AI Program is designed for education and training professionals in all areas.

Courses

  • AI-based Learning Technologies

    This course introduces different AI-based learning technologies that are currently used in corporate training, such as chatbots, virtual assistants and gamification.  It also examines the benefits and limitations of these technologies and explores the ways in which more general AI could be used to perform these functions.

    COURSE ONLY $349 - REGISTER HERE

  • Ethical and Social Issues in the use of AI in Teaching and Learning

    This course would have learners explore the ethical and social implications of using AI in support of teaching and learning.  It will include such topics as data privacy, biases in algorithms, AI "hallucinations", the effects of manipulating input to the AI, and the possibility of negative social and economic impacts of AI use.

    COURSE ONLY $349 - REGISTER HERE

  • AI in Writing

    This module considers the ways in which AI can support the writing process through each of the following four stages: generating ideas/content, organizing the ideas/content, composing the document, and revising the document. Participants will also learn how to use AI to explore writing for different audiences and purposes.

    COURSE ONLY $349 - REGISTER HERE
  • AI and Simulation Learning

    In simulation-based learning (SBL), Artificial Intelligence (AI) programs are often used to generate and control simulation environments. For example, AI may be used to develop learning environments tailored to the background information or past performance of learners. In this course, students will explore the relationships among AI, simulation fidelity, cost effectiveness and skills transfer effectiveness in SBL.

    Bill Hunter

    Dr. Bill Hunter was the founding dean of the Faculty of Education at Ontario Tech where he is currently a professor. He is also an emeritus professor at the University of Calgary. He has taught a variety of courses in educational technology, statistics, measurement, learning theory, human development, program evaluation and other areas of educational psychology. Bill’s research has included topics in educational technology including blended and online learning as evident in his contributions to a 2022 book, Thriving Online: A Guide for Busy Educators, co-edited with Robin Kay.  His recent research interests have centered on the use of ICT to promote social cohesion, best seen in Blended and Online Learning for Global Citizenship, a 2021 book co-authored with Roger Austin of Ulster University in Northern Ireland. In the winter of 2023, Bill and several of his students discovered a new interest in the opportunities and challenges that artificial intelligence tools offer to educators.
