In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, understanding the fundamentals of AI and Data Science and their applications has become crucial not just for industry professionals but also for educators who are moulding the next generation of innovators and thinkers. AI-driven systems are now being used in almost all services we use in our everyday life, including social media, banking, e-commerce, navigation and conversational agents (e.g. ChatGPT). These helpful aids now have profound applications in diverse fields, including computer science, economics, development, business, education, engineering and law.

As these technological innovations drive changes, it is more important than ever to learn (i) new pedagogical approaches for teaching AI and Data Science courses, (ii) ways of using generative AI as a thought companion and co-teacher, and (iii) grounding AI and Data Science concepts with real-world applications. This in-depth and hands-on 2-day workshop is specially designed for educators, aiming to unravel the core concepts in artificial intelligence and data science, teaching strategies that cater to the needs of the students as they prepare for the industry and academia, new pedagogical innovations, and to provide insights into their real-world applications.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this workshop, the participants should be able to:

  • Teach foundational concepts and principles of AI and Data Science and their relevance in today's technological landscape.

  • Ground AI and Data Science teachings with real-world applications, ensuring students are well-prepared for both industry and academia.

  • Engage with hands-on activities and strategies designed to cater to the specific needs of students, enhancing their learning experience.

  • Build data pipelines (collection, cleaning, EDA, modelling, evaluation, results) for 'repeatable' work.

  • Use Python and popular data science libraries like Pandas, Numpy, Matplotlib, and Scikit-learn to analyse and visualise data.

  • Utilise generative AI as a collaborative tool in the teaching process, harnessing its potential as a thought-companion and co-teacher.

  • Communicate results effectively

The interior design course at LUMS was a great experience. The course wasn’t too long, and I could manage it easily alongside my job. This course helped me gain the confidence and initial experience I needed to get into the market.

Leo’s Workshop, Beaconhouse School System

Course: Introduction to Business

The overall experience that I’ve had with this course is just amazing. It’s like a micro MBA that LUMS can have you do in less than two months. It’s a very rigorous course, it’s time-consuming and very hands-on and is a learning experience that everyone should experience at least once in their lives.

This course holds a lot of significance because I gained a hands-on, practical understanding of auditing before stepping into the professional world. The instructor created this well-rounded course and allowed us to develop a work ethic that helped me excel in the workplace. This certificate on my resume has opened many doors for me, and I feel like I have got a head-start among my professional counterparts.
