The emergence of free, powerful, and easy-to-use generative AI (Artificial Intelligence) has caused significant disruption in higher education, as institutions & educators have pondered the implications of student access to tools such as DALL-E and ChatGPT. Many have argued that we are only at the beginning of what will be a significant reshaping of higher education, as sweeping as those that have been affected in the past by computers, the internet, and social media. On May 3, a panel of Boise State faculty from across the disciplines will lead a discussion of how AI will affect the landscape of higher education. The Center for Teaching and Learning, College of Innovation & Design, and the AI in Education Task Force invite you to bring your lunch– along with your questions, concerns, insights, and areas of excitement– to this conversation on a major change that will affect us all, in both the short- and long-term.
