Postsecondary institutions launch task forces, studies, seminars to navigate AI learning curve


Several postsecondary institutions have announced significant strides in their efforts to navigate the impacts of artificial intelligence (AI) in teaching and learning. Brock University has joined the Canada-wide AI and Academic Integrity Study, which aims to gather empirical evidence regarding the future use of AI and text-based tools. The study is led by the University of Calgary, in collaboration with other partner institutions, including Toronto Metropolitan University and the University of Saskatchewan. Trent University has launched a series of drop-in seminars that aim to help educators learn more about AI and explore ways to adapt their courses accordingly. McMaster University’s AI task force has released a series of provisional guidelines regarding the use of AI at the institution.
