Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Diana Gayol, Director of Diploma in Didactics and Pedagogy in Health Areas at the Faculty of Medicine of the Fundación Barceló in Buenos Aires (Argentina), to DIPF.

Dr. Gayol’s research focuses on psychological studies of Argentinean students and shows parallels with various activities of the TBA Center. On her research trip, she was able to make a stop at Campus Westend, where she was particularly interested in an exchange about future AI applications in argentinian education with Sebastian Wollny and Sebastian Gombert.

Collaborative Discussions

During her visit, Dr. Gayol engaged in dynamic discussions with our researchers. We explored topics ranging from personalized learning through Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) to Chatbots and AI-driven analytics. Dr. Gayol emphasized the importance of bridging the gap between AI in education research and educational practice. She was of the opinion that this could also help with education in Buenos Aires. As educators, we recognize the need to integrate technology effectively into the classroom, and Dr. Gayol’s visit reinforced our commitment to this mission.

Looking Ahead

As we reflect on Dr. Gayol’s visit, we remain energized and motivated. Our ongoing research endeavors aim to create a brighter future for learners worldwide. We extend our gratitude to Dr. Gayol for sharing her expertise and inspiring us to continue our mission.
