Webinar: ChatGPT - What is it and What Does it Mean?

Join us for an informative, thought-provoking and interactive presentation and panel discussion where we explore what ChatGPT and other forms of Generative AI mean for career advisors, educators, job seekers and changers.

How will Generative AIs shape our work futures, how will work look, and what skills and capabilities will be required. And importantly, how do we as Career Practitioners assist our clients to navigate this rapidly changing space? 

While Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been present in, and shaping, our daily professional and personal lives for many years, recent developments in generative AIs, such as ChatGPT 4 and DALL·E 2, have brought into line of sight the powerful transformative potential of these technologies. Across the world, industry, political, and educational sectors are grappling with these new generative AI technologies, determining what they mean, and how to best leverage from them. They are here to stay, they will become stronger, more reliable and powerful, and they will dramatically change how we work and communicate. 

So what are the implications of new generative AIs for career development professionals – and the clients you support? In this session, we will hear two national experts and thought leaders give their ‘takes’ on Generative AIs and their implications for the future of work and employability, plus some handy tips for you as career development professionals.

Kim Flintoff has extensive experience in both the higher education and K-12 schools system, with interests in education technology, skills development, the future of work, and more recently Generative AI. Dr Kirsty Kitto has an extensive background in learning, big data and learning analytics, AI, and employability and skills development. She is presently leading national research projects exploring the intersection of employability and big data approaches. The two experts will be joined by Dr Cassandra Colvin, who will facilitate what promises to be an engaging conversation with our two panellists.
