Clemson Teaching Excellence Conference: Teaching in the Age of AI

Tuesday, January 9, 2024 | 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. | Watt Family Innovation Center Auditorium


This year’s conference theme centers on AI and teaching. Attendees will learn, share and discuss ways AI has changed or will impact their teaching practices and be inspired to help students effectively and ethically use AI as part of their learning journey.

Faculty presentations and posters – and industry and student panels – throughout the event are designed to bring all these voices to bear on the discussion of faculty innovation, student education and impacts on future careers.

AI is pervasive now, and we have to prepare our students for a different world. Combining all of Clemson’s resources in one institute will help us recruit top students and faculty and better compete for federal grants that fund cutting-edge research.”
