AI seems to continue to dominate the news in general and in higher education. Considering there are advances in the features almost daily, ChatGPT, Bard, and DALL-E will continue to be a hot topic for the foreseeable future. This is why I invite you to attend the Artificial Intelligence Online Fall Summit presented by the Instructional Technology Council on November 8, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The opening keynote will be Flower Darby, Associate Director of the Teaching and Learning Center at the University of Missouri.

The cost to attend is $50 and registration is open
