Generative AI in Teaching and Learning


Academia must reevaluate its model in the face of AI and ML. Disciplinary boundaries are outdated, requiring interdisciplinary research and collaboration to understand algorithms and ML. Institutions should integrate new technologies while recognizing the importance of human oversight and collaboration in the human-AI partnership. The “human-in-the-loop” model enables new knowledge creation. Human fact-checking and critical evaluation are vital due to AI limitations. Empathy builds trust between humans and AI, ensuring alignment with human values. The illogical, irrational, and emotional aspects of human cognition drive creativity. Through interdisciplinary collaboration, human oversight, empathy, and leveraging unique human qualities, academia can navigate technological advancements and foster a symbiotic relationship with AI.
