Monthly MondAI #4: Insights from pioneers: March 4, 2024, 12.00-13.30, CHN F 42, ETH Zurich

The HS23 'pioneer' lecturers of the Innovedum project will have a roundtable discussion about the insights gained from working with AI-based tools in their courses. They will share their experiences regarding adaptation strategies, preferred tools, the range of tasks on which AI-based tools were used, the assessment of students‘ work, and, potentially, any open questions.

Monthly MondAI #5: AI-based tools beyond writing : April 8, 2024, 12.00-13.30, Location TBA

This Monthly MondAI event will highlight the diversity of educational applications of AI-based tools. To help lecturers conceptualize their own teaching scenarios, we will showcase examples where AI-based tools were used for tasks beyond scientific writing, including coding, visualization, gamification, and more. Get some hands-on training on different educational examples with AI-based tools.

Monthly MondAI #6: Students' perspectives: May 6, 2024, 12.00-13.30, Location TBA

Students who have already collected valuable experiences while working with AI-based tools will offer their perspectives on how they incorporate AI-based tools in the learning process. The students will demonstrate a few typical use cases and discuss with participating lecturers some best practices for AI-based tools in and outside of the classroom.

Systems Thinking and Design for Social Change and in Policymaking


Learn how systems thinking can inform, model and impact policymaking. Society, scientists,and policymakers have to deal with wicked problems that can be assessed and solved only if seen in a systems context. In several modules that combine theory and hands-on workshops, we will move from system analysis to guidance in transforming social practices and policymaking. Participants will get to know a toolbox of techniques used in system mappingand system design. The course is designed as a series of half-day workshops with different experts and different tools. Participants are asked to bring their own problems and cases.

Lecturers: Melanie Paschke (PSC), Tobias Luthe (ETHZ), Laura Ferrarello (EPFL), Anais Sagaesser (scaling4good & innosuisse), Swen Bos (Empa)
