Abstract: In this presentation, Prof. Blake A. Klinkner will discuss the ways in which rapidly advancing artificial intelligence (AI) will impact the future of higher education. Prof. Klinkner will discuss how AI will change higher education as early as the college application and admissions process. Prof. Klinkner will then address topics including the teaching of AI in the higher education curriculum, the training and use of AI among students, and AI on examinations. Whether educators like it or not, AI is already here, and it will only become more prevalent as it advances, and therefore educators would be best served by learning more about AI and understanding the ways in which they may acknowledge and incorporate AI into higher education.
