Impact of AI on higher education panel event May 3

The emergence of free, powerful and easy-to-use generative artificial intelligence (AI) has caused significant disruption in higher education as institutions and educators ponder the implications of student access to tools such as DALL-E and ChatGPT. Many argue that this is only 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.

A panel of Boise State faculty from across disciplines will lead a discussion of how AI will affect the landscape of higher education from noon-1 p.m. on May 3 in the College of Innovation and Design space on the second floor of Albertsons Library. The Center for Teaching and Learning, College of Innovation and Design, and the AI in Education Task Force invite participants to bring their lunch along with questions, concerns, insights and areas of excitement to the conversation.

Visit the Center for Teaching and Learning event calendar to register. Registration will be limited to the first 65 participants.
