Florida Instructional Designer Network Summer Webinar Series: 
ChatGPT and Generative AI in Education

The Florida Instructional Designer Network (FL-IDN) provides eLearning professional development resources for instructional designers, technologists, and other online learning professionals. The network promotes online teaching and learning innovation, effective practices and education quality, as well as creating collaborative, learning and networking opportunities for its members.

FL-IDN is responding to instructional designers' and faculty members' interest in Artificial Intelligence (AI) with a summer series of webinars.  The series began in May with our own Instructional Designers, Rebecca Yost and Katie Wing presenting A New Educational Journey:  Navigating the Future of AI in Education.  The series has two webinars each month through July 24th.
