Within the debate over the role of AI in the present and future of learning, a wide range of valid concerns and enthusiasm can sometimes mask a fundamental truth: AI is dramatically changing teaching and learning and will continue to do so in future years. How should institutions work with their varied stakeholders to ensure they are fully considering the pitfalls and promises of new AI technologies in ways that lead to more effective learning and institutional outcomes?
In this webinar on demand, you’ll learn about one institution’s attempt to raise the AI literacy of everyone they employ and educate. Dr. Leo Lo, Dean and Professor of the College of University Libraries and Learning Services, leads the University of New Mexico’s AI Empowerment Initiative. The initiative aims to enhance AI literacy across the university to ensure responsible and effective use. In this wide-ranging fireside chat, you will hear how UNM is approaching AI literacy at scale, encompassing faculty training, evaluation criteria, academic integrity guidelines, and new courses for non-technical students. This webinar is ideal for any decision-maker, faculty member, or educator grappling with how to implement a thoughtful AI policy that considers the full spectrum of benefits and challenges.
