Most experts believe we are all in the early stages of a paradigm shift. This is the result of the unprecedented global proliferation of large language models. Since AI tools such as ChatGPT are infiltrating higher education, teaching & learning --as well as research across the disciplines --must respond. How best can we leverage this new world of human-machine convergence? The purpose of the Purdue System-Wide Forum 2023 is to consider how we lead the strategic possibilities of AI today and into the future. We will do this by examining its exciting opportunities and real challenges in higher education. 

In the spirit of reimagining higher education with AI, we invite proposals from faculty and administrators from across the Purdue University system who can showcase innovative applications of AI in higher education and offer critical reflections on the opportunities and challenges presented by AI. These online sessions will be 20 or 40 minutes long and are expected to: 

  • Explore innovative applications of AI in curriculum design, teaching, and assessment that have the potential to facilitate knowledge creation and skill building. 
  • Highlight the potential for AI to impact policies and standards in the administrative, teaching, and learning experiences of faculty and students. 
  • Provide evidence-based insights that showcase the latest research and best practices in using AI to promote ethics, inclusivity and diversity in higher education. 
  • Encourage critical reflection on the opportunities and challenges presented by AI in reimagining the learning experience in higher education and identify strategies to address concerns related to the responsible use and development of AI. 
  • Present attendees with interactive and engaging sessions that promote participant interaction and foster connections among a diverse group of educators, researchers, and industry professionals.
