This session highlighted the profound impact that AI is making within our industry, offering attendees a comprehensive view of the cutting-edge innovations and opportunities it presents. ICEF Digital 2023 is indeed shaping up to be a breath of fresh air, striking a perfect balance between expertise and thought-provoking discussions that promise to drive the international education sector forward.

After that, attendees were treated to a series of engaging and informative talks that further enriched their understanding of AI's role in international education. Alex Calder presented a talk on 'Unlocking AI's potential: A roadmap for international education marketers,' offering valuable insights on how AI can be harnessed to enhance marketing strategies in the field. This was followed by Elizabeth Newall's intriguing discussion on 'From culture shock to digital shock: Preparing your students for an unfamiliar digital environment,' shedding light on the challenges students face in adapting to the digital age.

Just before the lunch break at ICEF Digital 2023, attendees were treated to two more insightful sessions that continued to explore the frontiers of digital innovation in education.
