4th International Staff Training Week, Poland / Artificial Intelligence at the Universities – a boon or a bane / 20-24 May 2024 at University of Applied Sciences in Nysa, Poland | Application deadline: 31 March 2024

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has rapidly evolved over the past few decades, transforming various sectors and industries, including education. The integration of AI technologies within universities has sparked a debate regarding whether it is a boon or a bane? This debate hinges on the potential benefits and drawbacks associated with AI's presence in higher education settings. The key lies in how universities adopt and integrate AI technologies responsibly, ensuring that the benefits are maximized while addressing potential drawbacks. Striking a balance between leveraging AI's capabilities and maintaining the core principles of education is essential to ensure a positive transformation of higher education in the AI era.

The general objective of the Erasmus+ Programme is to support, through lifelong learning, the educational, professional and personal development of people in education and training. During the International Staff Training Week participants will share their individual experiences of using artificial intelligence for self-development, university work, projects organisation and the teaching process.

The issue will be discussed from different perspectives: lecturers, researches, technicians, administrative staff and students raising concerns about threats that it may also pose to Universities management processes.
