EdSurge: Reflections on “Who Controls AI in Higher Education and Why It Matters” and the Impact on Education Science

EdSurge recently hosted a live thought leadership video discussion led by Jeffrey Young, an EdSurge senior fellow. This live video featured Dr. Mark Milliron, co-founder and chief learning officer of Civitas Learning and Dr. Candace Thille, a professor at Stanford University. The focus of the video was “Who Controls AI In Higher Education And Why It Matters.”

I first discussed this topic as part of my related Educause posts, primarily because of the conference’s focus on technology and its essential and continually emerging role in higher education.

But what do all of these technological changes mean for us in higher education? In this post on the future of higher education, I will address the potential implications in three areas: program currency and relevance; preparing students for the future; and the changing role of faculty.

Technology and Higher Ed: Learnings and Takeaways from Educause 2017 and EdSurge Live

As I discussed previously, the recent Presidents' Forum in part, and Educause 2017 in large part, focused on the topic of emerging and rapidly evolving learning technology. This week, I use an experiential learning framework approach to report my learnings and related reflections, i.e., what does this mean for higher education today and in the future? What do we do? What actions or follow-up are needed to advance these ideas?

Educause provided a wealth of informative and engaging ideas on multiple topics and areas. While attending Educause, I also had the opportunity to listen in on an EdSurge conference on artificial intelligence, hosted by EdSurge Editor Jeffrey Young and featuring Dr. Candace Thille from the Stanford Graduate School of Education and ‎Civitas Learning Co-Founder & Chief Learning Officer Dr. Mark Milliron. Noteworthy takeaways from each program included the following.
