Maintaining human values at the heart of AI in postsecondary education: Editorial


In an editorial, Jenny Dixon argues that human values–such as compassion and emotional intelligence–must be maintained to navigate the tidal wave of new technologies overtaking postsecondary education. Dixon writes that the influx of generative AI platforms in particular has provided valuable indicators of where current teaching and learning methods are coming up short. She argues that the age of AI can be seen as an opportunity to co-create “a new educational future” with students, using generative AI and other new technologies “as a positive force.” Dixon concludes that this can be done by ensuring that co-creation, connection, and knowledge sharing is integrated into the heart of the postsecondary response to AI.
