Welcome to the Digital Futures faculty workshop!
This workshop will be an in-person event with exciting talks, discussions, and time to mingle and enjoy refreshments and dinner in a beautiful location in Skansen. The theme for this workshop is digital transformation in education. Please register as soon as possible to get a spot!

The use of digital technologies for education received a real boost during the pandemic. Furthermore, new machine-learning-based tools, such as ChatGPT, provide the ability to give rather well-formulated answers in natural languages. Consequently, these advancements open up for students to use such tools in assessments, which means that we need to rethink how we assess students’ knowledge. This workshop gives the opportunity to discuss future educational technology and how it will affect university education.
