Pedagogical Advances in Cognitive Systems

At the 2022 Conference on Advances in Cognitive Systems

Call for Participation

Objectives: This workshop will be the first in a series of five annual workshops seeking to bring together educators in the field of Cognitive Systems to set and achieve goals for curricular development in the field of cognitive systems. The second year's workshop will focus on (1) designing learning objectives for Cognitive Systems course modules at the undergraduate level in both Computer Science and Psychology (2) designing mutually agreed upon metrics for evaluating such modules; (3) presenting experience reports on Cognitive Systems course modules at the graduate level.

Format: The workshop will be held in Hybrid Format (in person / zoom). Workshop attendees are expected to come with their perspectives on these topics, either informally or through a submitted proposal or experience report; the workshop will then be spent presenting and discussing disparate perspectives and compiling a set of recommendations that can be shared with the rest of the community.
