Innovative AI use supports education, research, administration: Opinion


In a recent article for Times Higher Ed, Nick Jennings discusses how AI can benefit research and education. Jennings argues that AI will be transformative, and that AI can support innovative academic activities and personalize students’ learning experiences. The author writes that though AI can be used to create high quality work, students should learn how to use it on tasks such as generating ideas, summarizing bodies of work, and critiquing initial drafts. AI can be used by instructors for tasks that such as aggregating course feedback. Leadership can also use it to automate routine administrative tasks and improve how they operate in areas such as HR, finance, and marketing. Jennings writes that AI and humans should work in partnership to overcome hurdles and support these opportunities.
