Whether we like it or not, whether we realize it or not, applications of Artificial Intelligence have quickly become a ubiquitous part of everyday life. The Google Maps we all rely on, your daily newsfeed, and the conversations you have with Alexa or Siri are all driven by AI. Some worry that over-smart AI-driven computers will one day control us, or that AI-driven social media apps threaten personal welfare, science-based truth and democracy.  Other observers maintain that AI will free people from mundane, repetitive tasks and rapidly facilitate rapid socioeconomic development.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted education systems in unprecedented ways. The crisis exacerbated long-standing inequalities, revealed the limits of technology, raised questions about learning loss and recovery, heightened concerns about corporatization, exposed the value of teaching, and much more. There is an urgent need to envision the future of public education for a post-pandemic world. What lessons have we learned from the pandemic for public education systems in Canada?

Students are looking at a future that will present problems that require global solutions that come from intercultural teams. Educational institutions across Canada are aspiring to graduate students who are equipped to navigate a rapidly-evolving global landscape that positions them well towards identifying and solving these global problems. Students from international backgrounds enrich our campuses with their diverse cultures, ideas, values and traditions. As part of the international education community, we interact with organizations globally.

Oscar Nespoli will provide a review of successful pilot programming where interdisciplinary teams of students were immersed in international practice settings, finding, framing and constructing problems during their coop terms, while being coached virtually by tutors on campus.  Q & A session will follow a brief presentation on the main findings and possible future work.
