​This short course offers academics who teach at SU an opportunity to broaden their knowledge and understanding of the role of AI in various pedagogical approaches, with a focus on promoting social justice.  

The course will draw on theoretical perspectives and evidence-based practices, providing participants the chance to think creatively and innovatively about how AI can both hinder and enable effective pedagogical practices that support student learning.  

Participants will have the opportunity to: (1) deepen their understanding of social justice in the current digitally-enabled higher education environment, (2) expand their knowledge and skills in critically engaging with automated tools like generative AI, (3) develop a deeper understanding of socially-just pedagogies and how they can impact student learning, (4) collaboratively explore practical ways AI could shape in-class and out-of-class learning experiences.

This is an in-person, full-day course from 20 to 24 May. For preliminary registrations, please email Magriet de Villiers (
