Generative AI for Teaching and Learning

Welcome to the 'Generative AI for Teaching and Learning' Hackathon, an innovative event designed to explore the intersection of artificial intelligence and education. In this hackathon, participants are challenged to harness the power of generative AI to revolutionize how we teach and learn. From developing AI teaching assistants, automated exam marking tools, and interactive learning modules, to creating solutions for content summarization, language learning, and student well-being monitoring, this hackathon is an opportunity for thinkers, developers, educators, and students to collaborate and create AI-driven solutions. It aims to address key educational challenges and unlock new possibilities in personalized learning, academic integrity, mental health support, and career guidance. This event promises to be a breeding ground for forward-thinking ideas and groundbreaking tools that could shape the future of education.

The challenges in this hackathon will focus on novel applications of Generative AI in education, from machine learning and data analytics to cognitive assistants.
