University College Isle of Man (UCM) has launched a new series of free events to promote and support professional lifelong learning, with the first event focussing on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digital courses.

Throughout the year, UCM will be hosting a number of events, each exploring a different current trend or emerging topic.

The first event, entitled ‘Business in the Age of AI’, will be held on January 23 at 8.30am at UCM’s Homefield Road Campus, and will be presented by the founder of Lemur Labs, Brian Gallagher.

Brian, who has 40 years’ experience in technology consulting, relocated to the Island from the USA earlier this year.

His company, Lemur Labs, aims to help businesses and individuals adapt to AI through workshops, audits, training and delivering solutions.

Kerry Birchall, who manages Adult Learning at UCM, said:

“Following the recent launch of our new Adult Learning Upskilling offering, we’re really excited to announce this new series of free events which are great for Continued Professional Development (CPD) and aim to encourage lifelong learning in the workplace. We’ve been consulting with industry and the Chamber of Commerce to ensure we’re delivering events and content which supports the goals or aims of the Island Plan and UCM strategic plan.

“AI is such a hot topic at the moment, with many people questioning whether AI will take their job, how they can use AI to improve their career or how AI can make their business better; so this event is really timely and will hopefully help answer some of those burning questions.”

UCM will be hosting the events on different days and times of the day, including breakfast, lunch and twilight sessions.

Future Learn4Life events will be held in April 2024, June 2024 and September 2024.
