Artificial Intelligence is a hot topic, also in education. Therefore, we organised the Month of AI in Education in June. It was a cooperation between the Acceleration Plan, SURF, the Special Interest Group AI in Education and the Dutch AI Coalition. We organised several activities – think of webinars, hackathons and a blog series – and we present them in this article.
During the Month of AI in Education, we published a blog series from the Acceleration Plan zones.
A large part of the events during the month of AI in education has been recorded, or a retrospective has been written about it.

A report has been written about a number of events. You will find it here:
June 16, four teams started the Hackathon AI in Education, organised by the Facilitating professional development for lecturers zone. The assignment was to come up with a practical application of AI for higher education. To be precise: a proof-of-concept, background information characteristics of the AI solution and a reflection on inclusiveness and ethical considerations. During the kick-off, the teams received three lessons from professor and jury member Kim Schildkamp (University of Twente):
The teams came up with surprising AI applications. These included linking apps that measure stress indicators (team Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, Physiotherapy course) and Questinder – an application for linking students with questions about certain professional products in a regional and global network (team Avans University of Applied Sciences). The winner was the team from Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. The participants had the opportunity to present their solution on June 29 at the Dutch AI Coalition.
