Facing the Future of Technology and Learning
Concurrent Session 5
In the last decade, innovations like adaptive learning, smartphones, learning analytics, OER, and MOOCs have been chipping away at the corners of traditional education. Then came COVID-19, causing a rapid acceleration of the adoption of these kinds of technology and new pedagogies in under a month. The next wave of disruption to higher ed will not come from more technology to incorporate into teaching, but will be caused by the existence of advanced technology in the workforce. The existence of technology like AI will force us to alter the content we teach, how we assess, and how we design programs, modalities, and curriculum in order to stay relevant as educational institutions.
