When will Tech disrupt Higher Education?
Universities pride themselves on producing creative ideas that disrupt the rest of society, but higher-education teaching techniques using artificial intelligence continue to evolve very slowly. One can understand why change is slow at the secondary school level, where the social and political obstacles remain important. But universities have far more capacity to experiment. There are indeed already some challenging experiences with using software to help better understand individual students’ needs and deficiencies. Also guidance advice for teachers on how to give the most constructive feedback are on the rise. But so far, such initiatives are very limited. With those strong advances on technology and artificial intelligence, how can higher education reinvent itself and engage the students in an increasing active learning?
