Artificial Intelligence in Education: Looking Ahead

Recent developments in artificial intelligence can generate surprisingly high-quality and natural-sounding text and creative visual art. AI is poised to transform a wide variety of industries and disciplines, including higher education. It offers both risk and opportunity to the way we teach, the skills that students will need upon graduation, and how we assess their progress toward those outcomes.

In our first panel on AI, we focused on the immediate impact that AI (and particularly ChatGPT) is having on teaching and learning. In this second panel, NIU faculty with extensive expertise in AI discussed the ways that AI is changing the world that we live in and the careers our students are pursuing. Our expert panelists included: Ann Dzuranin, Department of Accountancy; David Gunkel, Department of Communication; Andrea Guzman, Department of Communication; Mona Rahimi, Department of Computer Science; Maoyuan Sun, Department of Computer Science.
