Coming Soon:
Artificial Intelligence and Ethics in Higher Education

The publicity surrounding ChatGPT has awakened faculty to the potential uses (and abuses) of AI in higher education. But it also opens broader questions about ethics in our increasingly digital lives. As scholars and mentors, we can contribute to a critical examination of how digital tools shape our habits of thinking and interaction. From the perspectives of philosophy, writing, information, and more, this faculty panel will spark conversation about being human in a digital world.

This session is a collaboration with the Baylor Ethics Initiative.
