Investing in people and the ongoing development of their skills to collaborate in a digital context and to perform successfully and ethically, critically, responsibly, and sustainably with machines and emerging technologies has become a priority in the digital transformation and post-COVID recovery.

This free virtual symposium (in French) features roundtable discussions from renowned experts in workplace, digital, computer engineering, artificial intelligence, psychology, anthropology, education, educational technology, and hypertrucage. These experts will discuss the issues and potential solutions to ensure inclusive, equitable and transformative training, reskilling, upgrading and development of today’s and tomorrow’s workforce for a changing labor market in the 4th industrial revolution and post-COVID era, where human-machine collaboration for augmented intelligence is encouraged, even expected. Training humans to counteract the growing misinformation in the form of hypertrucage is also on the agenda!

The symposium is organized by the Chaire de leadership en enseignement (CLE) sur les pratiques pédagogiques innovantes en contexte numérique – Banque Nationale, with the collaboration of the International Observatory on the Societal Impacts of AI and Digital Technology (OBVIA). It will be preceded by the official launch of the Chaire de leadership en enseignement (CLE) sur les pratiques pédagogiques innovantes en contexte numérique – Banque Nationale, under the patronage of Sophie D’Amours, Rector of Laval University.
