Module 2: Ethical and Responsible AI Use

Ethical and responsible use of AI aims to ensure that AI systems are developed and used in a way that is ethical, responsible, fair and beneficial to society. This includes consideration of the following issues, that will be addressed by the module:
✔ AI systems should have an equal and nondiscriminatory treatment of all individuals. This requires transparency, accountability and human oversight.
✔ AI systems collect and store sensitive personal data. This data must be protected from unauthorised access and use.
✔ Humans should retain control over AI systems and be able to intervene when necessary.
✔ AI systems should be developed and deployed in a way that has a positive impact on society and does not do harm to individuals or society.

By following these principles, we can ensure that AI is used for the benefit of all, not to harm any individual or group.

Introduction to the AI4AL self-paced training course

The AI4AL self-paced training path is a comprehensive training programme designed to equip educators with essential knowledge and skills related to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its application in adult learning (AI4AL). This curriculum embodies a key initiative within the project to enable educators to effectively harness AI technologies, improving learning experiences and outcomes for adult learners.
The rapid advancement of AI technologies is reshaping various aspects of society, and the field of education is no exception. Understanding AI concepts and integrating AI tools into educational practices can significantly benefit the Adult Education sector by personalizing learning experiences, optimizing curriculum design, and augmenting student support. This training program has been meticulously crafted to bridge the gap between theoretical understanding and practical implementation, fostering a deeper comprehension of AI's potential in the educational domain.

At the end of the course, the trainees:
✔ Will have understood the fundamental concepts of AI and its possible applications to the Adult Education sector;
✔ Will be able to fully understand the value of their contribution and that of the AI in the path that has involved them up to that moment in WP3;
✔ Will be able to use the AI4AL matching tool.
