Will AI Replace Teaching or Make Faculty More Human?

Will artificial intelligence replace teaching or make faculty even more human?

Reported by EdSurge, Penn State University educators helped paint a picture at the EDUCAUSE national conference of how artificial intelligence and machine learning will help complement and support the work of faculty in the classroom.

These include faculty using AI recommendation engines to discover new course materials, help generate quizzes, use audio recordings of lectures to provide feedback.

The takeaway? If we’re able to see AI as a tool and not a threat to our faculty’s livelihoods, we can then start designing more and more applications to help improve our instruction and the classroom experience we deliver to our students.


May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
