Experience Report on a Student-Organized AI Course

Abstract

As curricula are mostly centered around the specializations of faculty members, students are often seen purely as consumers of knowledge. In contrast, in the course presented in this experience report, we gave as much control to the attendees as possible. As the course was overbooked, we had to use an innovative format to search strength in numbers rather than limiting the number of participants. We crowdsourced lectures, practices and even the exam. This allowed our students to become (co-)producers rather than consumers of knowledge. Along with presenting our methodology, we evaluate whether our approach was successful and whether it could serve as an example for others.
