The AI Revolution

Transforming Higher Education for the Workforce of Tomorrow

September 13, 2023

While much of the discussion surrounding higher education and artificial intelligence (AI) has focused on scaling up AI research and adapting teaching methods in the face of tools such as ChatGPT, another side to AI’s impact on higher education is also compelling action. AI and machine learning are reshaping the world of work. It is predicted that over the next five years, new career paths will emerge, many existing paths will be reshaped, and some will end because of AI adoption and innovation. Higher education has entered a pivotal moment of challenge and opportunity to respond to this rapidly changing employability landscape.

This webinar featured a panel of experts who will contemplate the impact AI will have on the near-term future of employment in the United States and consider the most important changes higher education can make to develop a well-prepared workforce. This discussion also focused on partnership, curricular, and pedagogical opportunities that will enable higher education to prepare our students for an increasingly AI-rich future.
