Navigating AI to support students with disabilities: Opinion


In a recent article for the Chronicle of Higher Ed, Beth McMurtrie discusses how instructors can navigate AI use to the benefit of students with disabilities. McMurtrie writes that AI tools can act as personal assistants for those who may find tasks such as time management and information processing difficult. However, assessment methods – which may change as professors work to prevent cheating using AI – could also hurt students who may find oral exams or in-class tests more difficult. The author discusses how instructors can encourage students to produce their own work as a way of growing and developing their skills and work with students with disabilities as they create policies on AI use.
