LearnHack is a hackathon is a community event at UCL that embraces the collaborative spirit of hackathons, providing a platform for diverse individuals, regardless of background or skill level, to shape the use of technology in teaching and learning. The next LearnHack will take place on Saturday/Sunday 26-28 January 2024 at the UCL School of Management, Canary Wharf and online. See the website for more information.

The event will centre around three distinct theme areas, each offering a unique lens through which participants can delve into the intersection of education and technology. The first theme, Generative Artificial Intelligence: Exploring Issues in Educational Settings, encourages the exchange of ideas, policy reviews, and ethical discussions surrounding AI integration in education. The second theme, Intersection: Making AI Work for Us, targets tech enthusiasts, promoting the development of tools that seamlessly combine AI with Assessment & Feedback, addressing responsible AI use and ethical considerations. The third theme, Assessment & Feedback: Get Involved in Improving Assessment and Feedback, is tailored for those keen on refining assessment processes, exploring tools, and enhancing support materials, with a focus on peer assessment, ePortfolios, marking criteria clarity, and constructive student feedback.
