In this Innovation Insights Research Talk, Dr. George Veletsianos draws on survey data that invited learners to describe the ways they would interact with artificial intelligence in future learning environments. How Learners Are Imagining Future Interactions with AI will explore the two common learner views on artificial intelligence: AI as an object versus AI as a subject with agency and subjectivity. Dr. Veletsianos will also examine the role of speculative methodologies for understanding and anticipating the current and future landscape of teaching, learning, and technology.

A Zoom link will be provided upon registration. We hope to see you there!
