The workshop aims to provide space for discussion on the exciting topic of AI in Education. New technologies, such as Large Language Models (LLMs), can transform the educational sector for the better through the implementation of personalized learning programs and other solutions that can significantly improve students’ progress and grading systems. The possibility of AI inclusion in education, on the other hand, has raised serious concerns regarding privacy, data protection, authorship and plagiarism issues, responsible use, and the possibility of unforeseeable long-term consequences of reliance on advanced digital solutions in education.

The workshop AI in Education: Ethical and Epistemic Perspectives is just the first step in creating an interdisciplinary platform where experts and scholars from various fields come together to discuss, debate, and delineate future implications, potentialities, and challenges of AI in education.

The topics of presentation include, but are not limited to:

  1. Implementation of AI in Educational Settings: AI-driven feedback, risks of overreliance, algorithmic grading, attention checkers, AI and creativity, writing and chatbots, anthropomorphization of AI, etc.
  2. Ethical Dilemmas and Challenges of the Use of AI in Education: data management, privacy, responsible research practice, the risk of bias, inclusion, consent, etc.
  3. Law and Politics of the Use of AI in Education: legal matters, copyright issues, the democratization of AI, financing dilemmas, global justice, societal impacts, cultural influence, etc.
  4. General Discussions on AI in Education: pedagogical shifts, philosophical discourses, case studies, technological innovations, future outlooks, etc.

We are looking forward to your submissions and if you have further questions, you can contact us at:
