Goals for Our Future State
Asked to describe the state of generative AI that they would like to see in higher education 10 years from now, panelists collaboratively constructed their preferred future.
Panelists generated a list of actions that individuals, units and departments, and multi-unit or multi-institutional teams can take to arrive at this preferred future in 10 years.
Planning for the Road Ahead
Envisioning the future we want to see is important and exciting work, but real progress can only be made when individuals like you create change. Use the recommended activities to solidify your vision of the future and make plans to take action.
