The International Summer University I have attended in 2020, although held online, likely offered a unique educational experience. The blend of academic rigor and cultural exchange, even in a virtual setting, have provided a rich tapestry of learning and interaction. The opportunity to engage with experts and peers from around the world on pressing geopolitical issues is invaluable, especially considering the complex challenges Europe faces today. This year, the 29th International Summer University is set to take place from June 23-28, 2024, in the historic town of Kőszeg, Hungary. This year's theme, "Europa and the Minotaur: Geopolitics Between Myths and Reality," will delve into Europe's geopolitical challenges and the continent's resilience amidst global changes.

This is a study (https://tytonpartners.com/app/uploads/2023/10/GenAI-IN-HIGHER-EDUCATION-FALL-2023-UPDATE-TIME-FOR-CLASS-STUDY.pdf) on the use of generative artificial intelligence (GenAI) writing tools in higher education. The study finds that both faculty and students are increasingly using GenAI, with students using it for tasks like summarizing text and understanding concepts. Faculty are concerned about plagiarism and want to see how students are using GenAI. There is disagreement about the overall impact of GenAI on learning, with students being more positive about it. Overall, GenAI use is on the rise in higher education, and both faculty and students need to adapt to this new reality.
