The Artificial Age: Opportunities, Risks and Ethical Issues for Education
Smart technology, artificial Intelligence, internet of things, biotechnology and robots are all having a significant impact on the world around us. But what are the implications for the education sector which has largely been unaffected to-date?
Abertay University's Vice-Principal and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) Professor Liz Bacon will discuss the possibilities, ethical issues and risks, as well as analysing future educational models and what these could mean for institutions and learners.
This free event will be held in the Main Lecture Theatre on Thursday 13 June at 4.00pm, followed by a drinks reception.
Fussy eating is a normal part of child development and can occur for many reasons. Most children pass through this phase but some children continue to have difficulty eating a range of foods or accepting new foods and their food choices may be limited.
During this parent workshop we hope to:
- Increase your awareness of what feeding difficulties are and why they can happen
- Increase your awareness of how the senses affect food choices and eating
- Support you and your family to try to reduce anxiety around mealtimes and feeding difficulties
- Increase your confidence in trying different ways at home to manage the difficulties your child has with eating.
The workshop will offer a chance to meet other parents and share experiences and ideas and therefore we ask that children do not attend.
There will be Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Dietitians present to discuss strategies and you will have the opportunity to ask questions.
If you have any questions you can contact the organisers on 01382 835103

'European Environmental Governance Assessment Frameworks'
Professor Stephen Stec will engage students and colleagues in a discussion about the development of an environmental governance assessment framework for the European Commission as a supporting mechanism for the Environmental Implementation Review process.
The development of the framework has involved a close examination of European environmental legislation and policy in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Aarhus Convention and other legal and policy instruments. The exploration of the topic will include some methodological problems encountered at the boundaries between research and instrumentalities.
Lunch will be provided in the mezzanine area of the Dalhousie Building (upper balcony) 12-1pm followed by the class in room 2F11
As part of the ISSR Global Scholar Programee, Dr Luyao Che will deliver a PhD master class.
The master class will focus on a highly controversial topic, which is the relationship between China’s unique market-state structure and the world trading system. The class aims to devote to an in-depth exploration of the instruments employed by contemporary China and the legal implications by them for the existing international economic order. Some of the most disputed concepts and issues, such as China’s state-owned enterprises (SOEs), “significant market distortion”, and “trade-distorting subsidies”, are covered by the master class.
One concept that will be highlighted in this class is nullification and cancellation of a dichotomy between the state and the market. This master reveals an ideological basis for China’s economic system underlying its structural peculiarity, which is the non-existence of a presumption on the market-state dichotomy. The master class offers an opportunity to reflect on the ongoing changes of the world trading system and update the conception of China’s involvement in these regimes. It will further introduce the views and primary sources from contemporary China and help enrich the literature.
Lunch will be provided in Room 2F14 1230-1.15pm
