The National AI Institute for Adult Learning and Online Education (AIALOE) has announced that Dr. Jessica Eisner and Liz Noles of Southeastern Technical College (STC) have been chosen for the inaugural AI-ALOE Teaching Fellows Program. Both instructors teach in the Business Technology program at Southeastern Tech.

Gina Robison, STC's Dean of Business Technologies and Human Sciences, said, 'I am extremely proud that Liz Noles and Dr. Jessica Eisner were chosen to join the esteemed AIALOE Teaching Fellows Program. Both instructors understand the importance of staying current with AI advancements as they equip Business Technology program students for the workforce. AI in education provides benefits like personalized learning, streamlined grading and feedback, and enhanced administrative tasks – leading to increased student engagement and academic success. I am excited to learn from these instructors and share this knowledge with other STC educators.'

The AI-ALOE Teaching Fellows Program is committed to empowering educators by integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies in teaching and learning environments. The involvement of Eisner and Noles will not only contribute to the advancement of AI in education but will also significantly enhance their professional development.

AI-ALOE extended invitations for Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) instructors to apply for a fellowship. AIALOE, housed at Georgia Tech, has 14 national institutes. Several TCSG colleges have been pivotal in the success of this institute by introducing novel AI tutors into their classrooms.

'Being a Teaching Fellow in the AI-ALOE program is not just about embracing innovation. It empowers educators and students to thrive in the digital age. By integrating AI into my classes, I aim to cultivate a dynamic learning environment that fosters critical thinking and prepares students for the evolving demands of the workforce. I anticipate the enrichment of student experiences and a direct impact on our local workforce by equipping learners with the skills needed to excel in tomorrow's digital landscape,' said Liz Noles.

AL-ALOE Institute's mission is to aid the digital transformation of the workforce. The Teaching Fellows Program is an opportunity designed for educators passionate about harnessing AI technologies to elevate teaching and learning experiences. These tools and analytics will aid students in higher education, continuing education, and workforce training.

Eisner said, 'I wanted to be involved because I see this fellowship as a unique chance to not only innovate in the field of education but also to make a tangible impact on how adult learners access and engage with educational content. The program's focus on personalization and adaptability through AI aligns with my strong belief in catering to individual learning styles and needs.'

Research in AI is paving the way for groundbreaking advancements in online adult learning. By harnessing the power of artificial intelligence, we can revolutionize education with innovative techniques and theories tailored specifically to the needs of adult learners.

'AI isn't just the future of online adult learning – it's a transformative journey towards unlocking human potential like never before. I am so excited that we get to represent STC and TCSG in this capacity! AI technology will empower adults to learn effectively and stay competitive in their careers. With AI-driven tools, our learners can navigate the complexities of the modern workforce, acquire new skills, and adapt to emerging trends with confidence and agility,' said Eisner Teaching Fellows must actively engage in program activities and provide feedback to AI-ALOE researchers.
