How AI integration is changing higher education: Opinion

In a recent interview with Evolllution, Anthony Lee (Westcliff University) discusses some of the ways that AI is being integrated into higher education. Lee explains that AI holds great potential in terms of customizing and tailoring education to the individual student by offering relevant assignments, tailoring programming to student career interests, and more. Lee encourages instructors to cultivate academic integrity through exemplary behaviour and maintain live human interaction to effectively address student concerns. Lee writes that AI also is being used by leadership to increase efficiency outside of the classroom. In the area of student support and advising, for example, AI can identify key challenges and barriers by analyzing conversations between advisors and students. “[H]igher ed institutions are also organizations, and it’s crucial for every organization to explore how AI can enhance efficiency across all departments,” writes Lee.
