The Penn Club of Metro New Jersey Invites You to Attend the

Wesley A. Stanger, Jr. Annual Spring Dinner

Tuesday, June 18, 2024 | The Hanover Manor


Featuring Guest Speaker:

Ryan S. Baker

Professor - Learning, Teaching, and Literacies Division

Director - Penn Center for Learning Analytics

Our evening will include a plentiful cocktail hour, including hot and cold passed hors d’oeuvres as well as hot and cold appetizer displays. We will enjoy a 3-course sit-down meal and beer, wine and soda throughout the night. There will be plenty of time during the cocktail hour for catching up with friends before sitting down for our dinner and our featured presentation. 


Our speaker will be Penn Professor Ryan Baker from the Learning, Teaching and Literacies Division. Dr. Baker researches how students use and learn from educational games, intelligent tutors, and other kinds of educational software.  Dr. Baker’s presentation will focus on contemporary large language models (LLMs) which have exploded into much greater use in education in the last year. In this talk, he will discuss ongoing efforts at the Penn Center for Learning Analytics to leverage large language models to support learners and learning, focusing on two projects. He will discuss the successes and (sometimes hilarious) failures of the approaches within his two projects, and what lessons we can draw from these projects for the broader use of large language models in education.
