Victoria University Vice Chancellor, Dr. Lawrence Muganga has launched East Africa’s first-ever book on Artificial Intelligence and its integration into today’s University Education.

Titled; “From Chalk to CHATBOTS: Discovering Authentic Education with AI,”, the book which has already attracted public attention was officially unveiled by Gulu University Vice Chancellor, Prof George Openjuru Ladaahon Friday, April 5, 2024, at the Uganda Vice Chancellors Forum Workshop in Entebbe.

“I am overjoyed to announce the release of my groundbreaking AI book, “From Chalk to CHATBOTS: Discovering Authentic Education with AI.” A heartfelt thank you to Prof. George Openjuru Ladaah, Vice Chancellor of Gulu Varsity for officially unveiling it at the Uganda Vice Chancellors Forum Workshop in Entebbe on April 5, 2024,” Dr. Lawrence Muganga posted over the weekend via his official X account.

Muganga says his book; ‘From Chalks to Chatbots’ aims at “Rediscovering Authentic Education with Al,” a trusty GPS for everyone trying to navigate the crossroads where education meets Al.

“Not to worry, this book is super reader-friendly. Think of it like sitting down for coffee with the author rather than sitting in some stuffy college lecture. Throughout these pages, we will explore how Al is not just about fancy robots taking over the classroom but how we as humans, can team up with tech to make learning more effective than ever before,” the transformative educationist notes in a synopsis of the book.

“This book is packed full of potential and ideas on how Al can jazz up how we learn, but it’s not all rosy; we won’t gloss over the hard stuff. We need to think about privacy, keeping things fair, and ensuring no one gets left behind. At its heart, education is still all about people. It’s about sparking creativity and nurturing empathy.” he adds.

The book, titled; “From Chalk to CHATBOTS: Discovering Authentic Education with AI,” was unveiled on Friday, April 05, 2024, at the Uganda Vice Chancellors Forum.

Whether you’re shaping young minds, deciding on the big policies, riding the school bus, or helping with homework after dinner, Dr. Muganga reaffirms that this book is the perfect choice for everyone and invites everyone “to join this big, exciting conversation as we figure out this new world together.”

The book whose grand launch will be coming will be available for purchase online through various eBook outlets, or by simply visiting Victoria University’s main campus for a soft and hard copy of the same.

Dr. Lawrence Muganga, a Ugandan-born Canadian, is an esteemed researcher, academic administrator, and award-winning author of best-sellers like “You Can’t Make Fish Climb Trees” and “Authentic University.”

Muganga is a dynamic educator who has dedicated his life to promoting authentic learning in education, and his contributions have had a monumental impact on the field. Through his innovative teaching methodologies, he has created a unique approach that emphasizes the real-world application of knowledge and skills.

As the Vice Chancellor of Victoria University in Kampala, Dr. Muganga has revolutionized the region’s education system by introducing Authentic Education which embeds technology and learning into real-world settings.
