Generative AI and ChatGPT present opportunities and challenges for higher education leaders grappling with complex questions and considerations around its use. They are being asked to provide guidance, recommendations, and education on the topic to multiple stakeholders including, faculty, students, researchers, staff, and the larger community. In this Leadership Series, participants will learn from and connect with thought leaders in privacy, policy, data, teaching and learning, and information technology. Through panel discussions, small-group deep dives, and networking on the topics below, participants will explore diverse perspectives and share insights to prepare them to successfully lead their organization’s generative AI initiatives.

  • Pedagogical opportunities related to generative AI and coursework
  • Privacy and security implications of AI now and in the future
  • Types of generative AI and how they are likely to impact higher education
  • Strategies for leaders to address effects and impacts of AI on higher education
  • Ethical considerations around the use of AI and how to navigate them

Engage in generative AI discussions through the EDUCAUSE community group after the event with individuals you met or would like to meet from the community. A set of generative AI resources prepared with the leadership perspective in mind will be provided.
