Mark your calendars on April 9th (1:00 – 4:30 pm EST) for CIRPA-ACPRI’s Higher Education Artificial Intelligence Forum, featuring expert speakers and participant discussions that covers fundamentals and best practices of AI/NLP with a focus on practical use cases to enhance the ways you interact with data.

Regardless of how you view AI, this forum will help you think more critically about these tools and what they can do for students and institutions.

The forum will feature two expert speakers in Dr. Jason Simon and Dr. Simon Bates:

Dr. Jason Simon serves as Associate Vice President of Data, Analytics and Institutional Research (DAIR) at the University of North Texas. He leads a comprehensive enterprise-wide data warehouse team of 13 that brings together data sources from across campus to promote data informed decision making. With his 30 years of experience in higher education, he is a frequent speaker at local, regional, and national conferences on data, analytics, AI/NLP, and institutional culture.



Dr. Simon Bates is a multi-award-winning Professor of Teaching in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at UBC Vancouver, who also serves as Vice-Provost and Associate Vice President, Teaching and Learning. His work in the area of technology-led educational enhancement and research, spanning some 20 years, has centered around three basic questions: How well are the courses we teach helping students learn? How might we improve upon these outcomes? How will we know that we have?
