BCIU Leadership Series

The BCIU’s Leadership Series is three days of learning designed for teams of district-level curriculum leaders, school-based administrators, and teacher leaders.

2023-24 Leadership Series:

Navigating Artificial Intelligence in Education: Empowering K-12 Leaders for Future-Ready Schools

 Effective system and school leaders must have a working definition of artificial intelligence (AI) and a nimble understanding of its growing set of capabilities. AI is already embedded within many aspects of society and educational systems. Leaders must respond in ways that minimize risks while improving instructional effectiveness and student learning in their efforts to prepare students for future opportunities that will be dramatically different from the past.
