One of the major technology trends shaping the landscape of all industries is Artificial Intelligence (AI). The use of AI in every industry is increasingly prevalent, and it’s essential that we educate our staff and students for an AI-driven future. AI will have a significant impact on the types of jobs that are available in the workforce, how we train people to do these jobs, and how we will need to work with students to prepare them for their future. Attendees will leave with a toolkit of resources to use with staff and students.
