Generative AI is a rapidly evolving field that has the potential to transform the way we teach and learn. From creating personalized learning materials to generating new ideas and perspectives, generative AI can help us explore the unseen and unlock new possibilities for education. This session examines how generative AIs can be used for instruction and educational development, including designing a card game for SDG education, developing tutor bots for supporting learning as well as revamping an existing course to be AI-ready and more accessible. The presentation will illustrate practical strategies and encountered difficulties, such that colleagues can be facilitated to teach more effectively via generative AIs.
