Harnessing the Power of AI in Education
Although they are not new, AI tools like ChatGPT have been discussed extensively over the last few months in academic and non-academic circles. Educators are concerned about the impact these tools will have on higher and K-12 education, respectively.
Some in the field say AI marks the beginning of the end of academic integrity. Others want to know how to ban it from use in schools, or how to control it. But more and more academics are seeing it as an opportunity to incorporate AI into their instructional strategies and pedagogies. Much like the calculator changed math instruction, this is yet another disruptive tool we need to better understand. The more we know, the more we can learn how to embrace AI.
We invite you to join a panel of academic leaders and faculty for a conversation about AI and its impact on education. Moderated by Anthology academics, our panelists will discuss how AI can impact instruction, academic integrity, research methods, business processes, and student support.
