Event description
AI and Educational implications: What does this mean for universities?

About this Event

For universities, the increasing role of machine learning in professional domains will bring changes to work that our students are being prepared for. Just as people learning to drive must now learn to follow a GPS, student doctors may need to learn to manage the automated judgements of AI technologies which are implemented around them. This will inevitably require the need to think across disciplinary boundaries, and understand the dynamics between biological, social and technical systems. How are we going to organise our students' education to prepare them for this?

The fundamental educational challenge is that machine learning will threaten to dissolve the disciplinary boundaries within universities: the same techniques and technologies will be applicable everywhere from architecture to dentistry. Universities, however, are ultra-stable institutions which appear resistant to repeated attempts to reorganise themselves. The traditional educational constraints of curricula, assessments, timetables, lectures, textbooks and discourses (in addition to departmental cost-centres) tend to mitigate against interdisciplinary working.

This workshop will address questions including:

  • How does education move forwards to address the challenges of the future of work?
  • Will machine learning take a more fundamental role in the organisation of the institution itself?
  • Will flexible online provision provide new ways for learners to self-organise their learning and accreditation?
  • Will universities adapt by absorbing the technology in such a way that they preserve their traditional structures?
  • What will be the effects on current educational technology?

Please note that lunch will be provided.
