LLRC conference: Critical, ethical, and practical use of AI in the language classroom

On June 13th, 2024, the LLRC will organize a one-day conference on the use of AI in language teaching.

Artificial intelligence has seen a surge in research and use, particularly since the arrival of ChatGPT. Also in language teaching, advice on and research into the use of AI are abundant. Many teachers are using AI already, and language learners have also already been experimenting with how to use (generative) AI to help them in their language learning journey. Questions that arise when using such tools are “How can I use AI to support language learning rather than to replace it?” and “How do I cope with the ethical issues that come with using AI?” (e.g., high need for energy, known biases). In other words, “How can I evaluate the practical benefits and ethical pitfalls of the use of AI tools in the language classroom?”

On June 13th, 2024, the LLRC will organize a one-day conference on precisely this topic. We are very happy to announce that Dr. Esther van der Stappen (Hogeschool Avans) has agreed to give the keynote lecture.
