Resource Spotlight: Artificial Intelligence

As educators become increasingly aware of the development of robust Artificial Intelligence engines, conversations have emerged about the place for AI in the classroom. While AI as a concept is not necessarily new, recent developments in large language processing have led to the launch of a variety of tools aimed at making it easy to quickly and easily generate text and media by feeding an interface simple prompts.

Within higher education, concerns abound about how (and whether) AI belongs in the classroom. Underpinning these concerns are a number of ethical dilemmas, including issues of bias, labor, and intellectual property. We encourage you to engage not only with resources to help you think about how to use AI effectively but also with the ethical questions woven through this complex topic.
