Automating Educating: AI + PSE

Increasingly sophisticated digital technologies have already transformed campus libraries and classrooms, textbooks and administrative functions, and soon, emerging AR and VR will revolutionize student labs and experiential learning, if not campus life as a whole. Big data and predictive analytics are already starting to enhance the personalization of learning and testing, and the delivery of student support services. Over the next decade, automation and AI will evolve exponentially to augment the work of instructors, tutors, advisors and graders – not to mention janitors, security and yes, communicators. In the longer term, this fourth industrial revolution will disrupt the labour market and radically challenge the purpose of education itself.

In this fast-paced interactive session, higher ed futurist Ken Steele will open eyes and blow minds with a forecast for the next few decades of increasing personalization – and DE-personalization – at our colleges and universities.

Ken Steele is Canada’s leading higher education monitor and futurist. He co-founded Academica Group, created the Academica Top Ten, manages Eduvation Inc, co-authored Canada’s first book on enrolment management, publishes a daily email newsbrief the Eduvation Insider, and hosts a weekly webcast, Ten with Ken, that reaches thousands of subscribers on a dozen platforms. Ken brings his unique perspective and insight to a broad range of audiences, from faculty and instructors, boards and senior administration, to information technology staff, concerned parents, and Canada’s most powerful corporate CEOs.


Here are some relevant episodes of 10K, for a sense of Ken’s approach and as potential examples to share with participants in advance:
