The Art of the Prompt: Fostering Learners' Autonomy with AI

Audience focus: Teachers of adolescent learners, Teachers of adult learners, Business English teachers, Teacher trainers


Although a majority of us are already using AIs, they can still feel a bit arcane. Instead of feeling left behind, I want to empower both teachers and learners alike to become more autonomous.
In this session we will discuss four activities showcasing AI’s power to foster engagement and autonomous learning. This presentation will be followed by a short hands-on workshop.
